Great food

This is one of my favorite places locally. The menu has a lot of variety, prices are reasonable, service is fast and the food is very, very good. I have eaten here many times and yet to find anything I don't like. Franklin used to have 2 other cajun style restaurants in years past and both closed... read more

My regular stop in Franklin. Good gumbo (looks like swamp water) and tastes like gumbo. I also had some boudin and oysters on the half shell. Great job guys. I'll be back next time.

While visiting TN from NC my teenaged daughter, a friend (local Tennesseean) and I had the pleasure of dining at Cajun Steamer. We decided to try a bit of everything. Appetizers: the fried alligator received a definite thumbs up, as did the raw oysters & the crawfish tails...But by far the favorite app was the blue crab & fried green... More

This place was recommended and the food was decent but it could be so much better. They don't seem to bother training the wait staff. Had to ask for tea refills and remind our waitress for items we had asked for (side or ranch, more silverware). Wait staff seems lost. Food was good but came out luke warm as if... More

I thought the food was tasty. I tried all the different southern spicy side dishes with my alligator po boy sandwich some I would try again some not but it was all cooked very good. Service was very great too.

They have excellent hush puppies, grouper, okra and étouffée. Service at the bar is excellent. Clearly this is a local favorite.

We went to the Cajun Steamer for a family lunch, we ordered alligator bites (way over- priced for the portion) and fried boudin balls (bland). The whole family shared the appetizers and we all felt the same (pricey & tasteless). Now I'm just speaking for my wife and myself, we ordered the steamed seafood platter for two,the shrimp were a...

I am ruined to eat shrimp and grits any place else! These were amazing! I keep trying to find a place as good, but so far, these are by far my favorite. Love the comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. Service is always great! We always have a great time and dining experience when we visit!
