Awesome food...great stop!

We were traveling home to KC and found this place on Trip Advisor...great food! Onion rings, alligator with special gravy and seafood platter were all great! I will even forgive them that owner is LSU fan. ;-)

Yesterday was my second visit to Boudreaux's. I'm not a huge fan of cajun food, but maybe it's because I haven't found the right restaurants in the past. If cajun food is like what is served at Boudreaux's, then I am a new fan. I didn't try the alligator as others recommend. Perhaps I will do that on the next... More

As a native Louisianan, when I saw this place, I had a try it! I was traveling with my 11yo son and his friend. We had the alligator appetizer and the boys thought that was great...had to brag to other friends that they'd eaten alligator! They both liked it; I wasn't a big fan, but it was ok. For dinner...

Great place to eat. A little expensive but not too bad. Be sure to try the alligator. I don't think I've had a dish I didn't like from here!

Stopped at this place on our way to KS. Read about it onTrip Advisor and we love Cajun Food. Cool place to eat - love the atmosphere and the food was awesome. Crab bisque was amazing and my husband raved about the crawfish étouffée. Not only did we have a great meal but upon arriving home in IL I realized... More

We happened to see this restaurant while just driving around St. Joe and decided to stop in for a drink and a snack. The Moscow Mules are amazing! We also had the gator appetizer and it was great. Then decided to stay for dinner. The food was seriously better than what we had in downtown New Orleans last summer. Very... More

I have high standards for cajun food, but this place met and exceeded my expectations. Their bloody Mary was awesome, and everything we tried from crab dip, to alligator bites, to jambalaya was all really good. I will definitely come back to thus place.

Very extensive Cajun menu served in an interesting old building in downtown St. Joseph. The food is very tasty and the service very friendly. Enjoyed the crab bisque, etouffee, and jambalaya. It's becoming a standard when we are in St. Joseph!
