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.

The 5-1/2 hour drive to get there is worth it, it's that 5-1/2 hour drive home that's a killer. This is one of 2 restaurants in the world I'd drive that far just to eat there. The other is a BBQ joint in Chattanooga Tennessee. My wife got the fried platter which was enough food for both of us! That's... More

First time diners here; were drawn by the reviewers comments. Didn't disappoint. The shrimp etouffee was delish, but salads did look a little on the skimp side considering the prices. We didn't order an appetizer, but our neighboring table did, and they looked good. Parking on the street is 2 hour limit and lots of "no parking" areas around here... More

This is a restaurant that we have frequented over the last 2 years. The owner passed away about 6 months ago, and ever since then we have noticed a change in a few things. The most disturbing, is a reduction in the portion sizes - even the salads. We still enjoy the venue, but are hoping that they don't start... More

We had a birthday dinner for my daughter's 16th birthday tonight. Our waitress was amazing and patient with our large group and small children. Our food delicious. We had the spinach dip, onion rings and alligator for appitizers. I had the fried platter. The crab cakes are perfect. Crunchy on the outside and.moist on the inside. Everyone had something different... More

If you like authentic Down South Louisiana sea food in bountiful portions at very reasonable prices, then this is the place for you!! I was concerned that when the original owner passed away, that the food quality, the service, and the atmosphere would suffer and that this delightful restaurant may just go by the wayside. Fortunately I was wrong! This... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting the south on many occasions, and this place offers up gumbo just like it was made in Louisiana. The alligator meat is a must have.

I spent nearly a decade of my life living in southern LA, and not since I've moved from there have I had gumbo or étouffée like I had when I was a southerner. At least not until now. Excellent, authentic Cajun cuisine, very reasonable prices. We will be back!

The lobster bisque is a meal in itself and so delicious. I also had the shrimp po-boy. Sit by the bright, tall windows and count how many times the city parking attendant drives around the block looking to ticket your car. It's extreme so be sure to park legally.
