We dined outdoors on a sunny fall day, enjoying an oyster po'boy and a dish whose name I cannot spell - shrimp, rice, corn. Everything was good but the BREAD was out of this world! Attentive server.

I discovered this restaurant while walking around Leesburg. I was looking for a dog friendly restaurant and was heading toward Lightfoot Restaurant. The word "Cajun" stood out, and I checked out the menu displayed by the front door, and the food sounded delicious. I love cajun food ever since I had a taste of it in Louisiana. There were so...

We were walking by, saw this little place. At first we were a little nervous, but, ultimately we were pleasantly surprised. We started with the Cafe DuMonde Beignets (not quite as good as the NOLA version but almost). The Cajun Bloody Mary was great. We had the red beans, rice and sausage cup, the shrimp and eggs Benedict and the... More

This a nice place to check out for a dining experience. The complete menu is based of of Louisiana style recipes. From my travels I had an oyster dish at another place and from only reviewing the menu I decided I would come to try there Char-Grilled Oysters, they were actually pretty good! My date had the Cajun Platter that... More

Have eaten here several times. Food is well prepared New Orleans menu. Service is what you can get when you are lucky if there is no attitude, so don't every be in a hurry. Jambalaya and Beignets are super.

We had an awesome (and surprising) lunch at The Cajun Experience in old town Leesburg, VA this weekend. Every drop of Cajun blood I may have wanted to do a little Fais do-do dance as we tried a little crawfish etouffee, the shrimp maque choux, and the jambalaya. The fried oysters were perfect - traditional Cajun prep but with delicious... More

The food was wonderful. The cleanliness of the front room in this old house needs attention. Window sills, etc need cleaning. The restroom was a his/hers and needed attention as well. The poorboy sandwich (catfish) was delicious. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. I would definitely give this restaurant in Leesburg a try, but the owner needs to give... More

Been here with several friends and family members--many of which were formally LA locals. The food is excellent and authentic. Yes, it's a bit on the pricey side, but you get nice size portions. Their poyboy lunch special is a pretty good deal if you live/work in the Leesburg area (I believe its a sandwich, Cajun chips and beignets for... More

Not cheap for families with grown kids (family of 4 adults with 3 beers, 2 desserts, and 4 entrees cost ~80-100) but very good food and ambient. One evening as I was walking by they had a piano playing outside and a couple other times some jazz music. Crawfish etuffae, chocolate ben-yays (sorry for spelling, Creole is not my cup... More
