Amazing catfish

Finally was able to get to this fine establishment. The buffet is ok with its Cajun selections which are all good. But the best item is the catfish that they bring to your table! I have tried catfish at three places in this city so far and nothing tops how fresh and tender their catfish is. This is... read more

This is the 3rd or 4th time I've eaten here. As always the food was perfect. But this time the waitress was clearly having an issue when it came to taking care of our table. As usual I was greeted and seated by the friendly folks as I stepped in the door. During our meal the waitress ( white girl... More

This place is unassuming and you could drive by it every day without even noticing it, but you'd be missing out. There is better Cajun food here than any restaurant I've been to in New Orleans. Everything is good. All of it. The selection is great, the quality is great, the price is great. This is the best buffet around.... More

This place has always been one of my favorites. I've been a loyal fan since it opened. This time the food was either over seasoned or under seasoned depending in the bite. The batter on the catfish was heavy and bland. The tiger sauce was pure honey with the regular flavors vacant. The étouffée was scorched but did look great... More

Beautiful, friendly staff, and delicious down-home food! What more do you need in a restaurant? Easily one of the best buffets (outside-of-Vegas) I've ever been to. You pay a small bit more (~$4-$5) than some other area buffets but the quality of the food served makes that a serious non-issue. AND...they bring you out that fresh cooked (can't say cooked-to-order... More

Ate here for lunch with a coworker because we missed the Cajun from a recent New Orleans trip. We left happy, full and in need of a nap! They had all of the main entrees we would expect. It's not high end quality, but for a buffet I'll be sure to visit again when I can! The staff even had... More

Gumbo was great, catfish and sauce was very good. Bread pudding was delicious. Fried shrimp and chicken were just fine, and tried frog legs for the first time. We'll be back!

There were 5 of us, including a toddler, for lunch. You pay as you enter the door and are directed to your choice of table or booth. No charge for our little grandson. Wonderful Cajun buffet and casual, unpretentious setting for a midday meal. Loved the food and the staff was so attentive and downhome welcoming. A great place to... More

I went here for the first time with a friend and I did not expect this wonderful food at all. First, the staff was very courteous and polite during my entire visit and made sure I had everything freshly made. If something was out for the buffett, they would personally make a basket and bring it over to you. This... More
