Really a great taste o' N'Awlins!. Menu was compelete and well presented. The water who waited on us was great: just a perfect belend of presence and tact for his timing...I was at a business meeting. On top of that...The restaurant hosts World Tavern poker tournaments...and was a lot of fun to watch. I will definitely be back!!!

The food was decent. I had the taste of Louisiana, my husband had the catfish platter. The service was super quick, so quick that I'm pretty sure there's not an actual chef back there. If it's not something fried then it's probably made way ahead or from a food service company. I think if we lived closer we could hang... More

Had a Group On found the place, a little hard because it has a street address but it's in a shopping center so it's not really a street. They had a rib eye special decided to try it out. It was good cooked correctly. Also tried the gator bites they were good also. Their mashed potatoes were excellent and you... More

My husband and I went on a Friday night with another couple and were surprised that it was pretty empty. The service was good. I had the oyster salad that was excellent! I will have that again. I guess my only complaint would be that they allow smoking right outside the front door that left a bad smell in my... More

We've been going to the Big Easy for a while now and for the most part the bartenders are on point with drinks, they are reasonably priced and not pushy at all. The food is typical bar food with some New Orleans style additions. The cajun style wings are great as well as the "Taste of Louisiana" which is jambalaya,... More

We bought a Groupon (should have been the first sign) and showed up on a weekend night for dinner. When we arrived there was a band playing in the front with some trashy looking tables everywhere. We went inside to an area that looked like a biker bar and was told the kitchen was shut down and they were only... More

I really like New Orleans, Cajun, Creole food and don't get it nearly as often as I'd like and haven't really tried to make the more complicated dishes myself. So when I noticed that this was open, we had to come by for dinner. The night we came it was raining and the place was not busy at all. We... More

Very nice menu, lots of options. Pimento fritters and seafood platter were both excellent. Muffuletta also excellent. Good variety of drafts and good service by Ryan Overall a nice homey comfortable bar and restaurant. We'll be back.

We enjoyed the food, but we did not enjoy the casual dismissal of a menu blip as far as the price was concerned. If the price is wrong, don't you think they oughta change it? When we brought this to the server's attention she appeared to believe the price error was sort of acceptable. It seemed as if she offhandledly... More

First time to The Big Easy in Cary. Disappointed that the menu is different from downtown Raleigh. Not as many cajun selections. Had Shrimp and Grits, my wife had fish tacos and my daughter had a crabcake sandwich. The shrimp and grits was made with pimento cheese. Was a little salty but overall good taste. My wife liked her meal... More
