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.

I'm originally from St. Joe and Boudreaux's is a place I always make sure we go back to when I'm in town. On our most recent trip to Boudreaux's, we started with the catfish pieces, a nicer version of fish sticks, and they were excellent. For my entree, I had the crawfish etouffe with fried crawfish tails and it was... More

The restaurant itself was nice. Seemed very light and fun. The food itself was bland, service was decent. Started with the Shrimp and Oyster En Brochettes but they have not had oysters for sometime according to the server. Okay so it was shrimp and shrimp. Battered shrimp deep fried, and wrapped in bacon. No taste. As someone else had said,... More

Great atmosphere. The food was excellent and I enjoyed the selection of draft beers. The bartender provided good service as I dined at the bar.

We stopped at Boudreax's for dinner on a Friday evening, just passing through town. We found a parking spot on the street. I had called ahead to ask about parking since this is downtown, and the guy I talked with was very helpful. He mentioned that one of the parking lots across the street was available to customers, but they... More

This essential watermark of a Louisiana-style restaurant easily made the grade. Seafood in the gumbo had wonderful texture with no off-putting fish smells. Rice was served on the side for the diner to add as desired. Plus, it helps the rice to maintain a firm consistency. Definitely a tasty stop.

One of the nicest restaurants in St. Joe that's a locally owned. Family and I had a great time celebrating a birthday. I have no reference for creole but I've always enjoyed this place. Parking can be weird if your not familiar with downtown St. Joe, but it is in a really neat old brick building. I tried something new... More

Located in downtown St. Joe's, it was a bit off the beaten path. However, I'm very glad we made the effort to find it. We had jambalaya, red beans and rice, blackened catfish and gumbo. Everything was great and the portions were large. Not too spicy hot. The fish was served with a condiment, that seemed to be made up... More

While we have several of the better "chain" restaurants, which you know you can always count on, Boudreaux's is one of the few "unique" places we have. The food is delicious. I love the chicken fried chicken (the sauce is incredible), the house salad dressing is delightful and the crab bisque is truly out of this world.
