We came here because of a Groupon. Kind of mixed reviews. They have a variety of fish and seafood in boils, gumbo and other preparations. Beware that the fried shrimp come whole with the heads on. OK in the dinner, kind of strange on a PoBoy sandwich. Some portions are small and some are large. The waitress was very busy... More

This humble little place in a strip mall seems to have a pretty good local following, but I did not enjoy it. Although it did have a fun vibe and energetic service, the food fell flat. I ordered the shrimp and was excited when the server asked me if I wanted the heads on, yes, please I replied. How disappointed... More

We found it through groupon, and gps. I've driven past it a100 times, it's really easy to miss the small sign that says simply"crawfish". We've been there 3 times or so and loved it! The staff is really friendly and fun. Our waitress was quick to point out what was good on the menu, after being asked. The gumbo, jambalaya,... More

So the service was very friendly. Everything was explained well. Overall the food was OK but everything came out at different times. We got our fries first, which we wanted, but our empty plate sat and sat even when 2 different people checked on us, neither picked it up. Then we got coleslaw that was supposed to be a side... More

I have been to Louisiana many times, both to NOLA and the surrounding parishes. Small out of the way dive bars are great places to get authentic cajun and creole fare at good prices. My Bother's did not disappoint! We were not hungry enough to try a crawfish boil, but many around us were up to their elbows in the... More

One of the few places in PDX to get a crawfish boil. They have recently cut the restaurant size in half. Smart business move. Cozy atmosphere and great service. Try all the items as a side to get more bang for your buck. The boils are just downright fabulous. Check it out you won't be disappointed!

This is one of the best southern restaurants in Portland. Gumbo, ettoufee, jambalaya, po'boys, all superb. The best cornbread I have ever eaten. A delctable array of Cajun and Creole dishes brought to you by three brothers from Houston. It is tucked away in a small strip mall of Southeast Asian noodle places in Southeast Portland. Great cozy atmosphere and... More
