Not the most awful food but far from great or even good. Calling it Cajun is a stretch. Waitress was nice enough.

Recently, my extended family of 6 met up in Columbia to try Prudhomme's. We ordered a bunch of different dishes and drinks and came away happy. The waitstaff is friendly, the decor/atmosphere is fun, and the food was....good enough. Seriously, what were you expecting? Some of the dishes were great, one or two were awful, but most were perfectly fine... More

This was our second time at the restaurant, the selection in Columbia PA isn't very vast, we were out touring central PA on our motorcycle and I was hungry! Because the first time we visited the appetizers were good (but the main course wasn't) I figured I could get away with soup and a sandwich. First I ordered unsweetened regular... More

This business is owned and run by a relative of the "N'Orlins" Prudhomme and cooks authentic bayou food. The building itself has interesting history which the owners will share with you. There is a fully stocked bar with a hoot of a bartender. The food is really good but and the portions are generous. It's nice for a couple, but... More

Out to dinner with 7 family members on a Saturday night. We had reserved a table for 7pm. Although we were seated right away, our drink order was not taken until 15 minutes later and we finally received our appetizers at 7:45. Good thing we could laugh, talk, and drink beer to pass the time. Food was delicious, but everyone... More

This is the first time I visited Prudhomme's for lunch. The room was empty, so service was quick. If you do go for lunch, bring a big appetite, or someone with whom to share. A bowel of delicious seafood gumbo, and a shrimp Po, boy, which comes with a pile of really good french fries, was enough for 2 people... More

While visiting the York region, we drove to Columbia for some dinner. Didn't know much about Prudhomme's Kitchen except for the nice rating received on TA. The restaurant is in an old hotel that was a speakeasy in the old days. . The service was good and the food was OK, nothing really special. When we walked in, there HE... More

This was the worst meal I had in over 30 years eating out, really. Special of the day,JAMBALAYA, with breaded fish on top. I Spread this whatever out across the plate, found 6 tiny pieces sausage, 3 over cooked celery, that's it. NO shrimp, chicken, nothing. Breaded fish was out of the freezer, asked for tarter sauce, did not help.... More

I was really excited about their seafood gumbo but it was tasteless. I had to add salt and hot sauce to make it palatable. And I rarely use salt. The stuffed flounder was okay. My husband got their special which was fried fish, hush puppies over jumbolea. Which wasn't even a good combination. Service was just okay.
