Not quite the same experience

Have been here a few times and it's a hit and miss kind of restaurant. First time, great. Second and third, just average. This last time around the holidays, it was great again.

Always enjoy the experience here. Very small indoor seating but they have a covered patio with heaters in the winter. Finish off dinner with beignets and Cafe Du Monde coffee.

Gator bites, yum. Beignet, yum. Everything is delicious at Cajun Experience! The weekend brunch is superb as well! A gem in downtown Leesburg!

I booked The Cajun Experience for a New Year's/Birthday Party for my bride. There was live entertainment, attentive staff, and way too much food. It was one of those experiences that will be remembered for years to come. The owner greeted me at the door and gave me a run down of the plans (as we had discussed before) which... More

If you are looking for good Cajun food...this is the place. The owners are from New Orleans and have developed a menus full of fish dishes to satisfy you hunger. Try the Crayfish Mac and Cheese. The dessert options are great!! It is a small and quite place to meet share stories of the day's activities. The servers are friendly... More

With all of the competition in Downtown Leesburg, it's easy to pass by this place. But they have affordable lunch specials, and their food is good. The Po' boy sandwiches are large and made fresh. The service is attentive. And they have a nice verity of meals. The place could use a paint job to make it look more welcoming,... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times, the food is good, sometimes better than others. The service is always excellent, and attentive. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere being totally different from the chain franchises to which we are normally subjected. On the outside it looks a little run down, but the inside is very clean and very pleasant.... More

We could have gone to a dozen other places in town but glad we didn't. Great oysters and gumbo. Would love to go back again. Laid back atmosphere but good eats

This Restaurant is not even close to good Cajun Food. I ordered the Jambalya and it lacked enough seasoning and very little onion and no celery. Whoever does the cooking, has got to step up to the plate and figure out how to season the Jambalya. The Shrimp appetizer was ok, and the hush puppies were too. The prices reflected... More

Some of the best crayfish etoufee, gator bites, steak Diane and, of course, Abita beer east of Na'Lins!! We come here for the authentic food but stay to hear the Hard Swimming Fish when they play as well. First Friday in Leesburg has us back monthly but we would come back anyway. Wonderful homelike atmosphere with outstanding food and drink.... More
