/good food, but pricy

Dudley's has some of the best seafood in the area. Best of all it's not a franchise like Red Lobster. Prices are on the high side, especially for lunch, but mainly due to quality of the food.

Great Cajun food without having to drive to Southern Louisiana. Always fresh seafood and fish. Always enjoy eating their red sauce and crackers before the meal

Good family atmosphere for casual dining. It is very "Cajun" oriented and heavy toward fried. The gumbo is super and the french fries and bread are absolutely the best.

Great atmosphere, food is very good and prices are fair. Service good. Menu had something for everyone. Has many delicious frozen items you can take home and prepare yourself! Love Cajun food and if you can't get to the NOLA area this is a good fix !

Had our Valentine's Eve meal there and as always, not disappointed! The blackened shrimp was delish and the fried crawfish tails divine. The strawberry pie is the end to a perfect meal. Choc pie for the choc lovers is also very god! Ice tea even good enough to brag about. Open for lunch and dinner weekdays but dinner only Saturday... More

In town for a family Christmas last week, we (party of 8) had lunch at Dudley's, a family favorite for years. As former residents of New Orleans, we appreciate good Cajun, and Dudley's doesn't disappoint. Red beans and rice a favorite, as as etouffe. Sadly, they had sold out of oysters on half shell, so I had to make do... More
