The food is very good and I enjoy the laid back atmosphere. I have eaten here many times both for lunch and dinner and have always had a good experience. I would recommend the Blackened Catfish or the Chicken Fried Chicken.

At the recommendation of a client, some colleagues and I ate here for dinner. At least it was local--St. Joseph is full of lots of chain places, especially near the interstate, so it was good to get somewhere downtown and less generic. Service was attentive and very friendly. No complaints. Atmosphere was nothing special--basically wooden tables in a rectangular space.... More

This used to be one of our favorites but we have not enjoyed it the past three times. The food is just not as good as it used to be. Lacks flavor, finesse, and any of the spice associated with Cajun cuisine. Super disappointing to lose a favorite, but won't be returning.

Food is great especially the crab bisque. The cream sauce for the chicken fried chicken is fantastic.

Typically a good place to eat. I tried something new, the boiled platter, blackened... It was gross. Should have never tried something new.

Love going here! Great food in a beautiful historic building in downtown St. Joseph , Mo. Lots of authentic Cajun atmosphere and a variety of Lousiana dishes to choose from.

We contracted Boudreaux's to host the Rehearsal Dinner for our son's wedding. We have eaten here many times and experienced great food and service. Upon contracting them for the event, they tailored a personal menu for our party, worked with a price range and supplied great wait staff and bartenders to accommodate the big crowd. We had a private room... More

Great Louisiana food! Only thing this place is missing is crawfish! The poor boys are delicious! I personally get the crawfish etouffee.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere. The service was sufficient, they were very busy at the time but it was fine. I would recommend it for a Cajun experience.
