Me and my sons had the "Cajun Dump" and it was just plain awesome. Great flavor and enough heat to make my sons beg for more to drink from the waiter to stop the burning in their mouth. Shrimp, Crab Legs, Crawfish, smoked sausage, corn on the cob and red potatoes. The atmosphere was different. Lots of old signage and... More

Flavor is good. We were here a few years ago. Portions seemed smaller. Crawfish Are in. The guys liked that. They bring and dump food on table paper. Give each a wooden hammer to brake the crab legs with. It is really fun!! The kids love it. Every thing is throw away. If this is problem don't go. Other wise... More

This place had a great Cajun Dump. What is that you say? It's basically skhrimp, crab, crawfish, corn and new potatoes dumped on your table that's covered with wax paper. It was very good. There was three of us and we split the the 2 person portion size. Prepare to get messy.

This place was highly recommended to us by friends, but we didn't even go past the front door. It looks like a dirty cafeteria inside. The hostess told us there would be a 20 minute wait even though only a handful of tables had people at them. She seemed more concerned with talking to an incomplete party about sorority life... More

The food was amazing and reasonably priced. The kids had so much fun eating and coloring on the paper covered table. Very dark inside. Windows are screened off. All the food was amazing.

So this place wasn't bad. You've got a few options as far as the menu goes, you've got the crazy cajun which is a serving of mixed seafood, sausage, corn, and new potatoes. Then you've got the standard gumbos, Jambalaya, and other assorted rice dishes but the main attraction is the crazy cajun. They bring it out and dump it... More

Bought a few pounds and they cooked it hot and fresh. Smelled wonderful but was really lacking the little kick that comes from the spices. Next time we will have a meal there and see how the rest of the menu is.

The gumbo, red beans and rice, etc. are meant to be ordered as sides, I think, to accompany the shrimp boil. We chose the seafood combo and red beans and rice for our meals and found the portions to be small. The food was delicious, but would prefer the option to order a dinner portion for a higher price. Real... More

nothing fancy about this place, but if you want a good seafood pot, it's great. It's weird for us northerner's to dump the food pot out on a paper lined table, but it's part of the 'charm' of this quirky little place. enjoy!

Years ago this place was once great, BUT NOW... do not waste your time or money here. the portions are very small,especially the king crab you DONT GET with the "hungry cajun". You'll be hungry all right,even after you eat here. the shrimp was so salty it was unedible. the sausage is some cheapo brand that does not taste good.... More
