“Great Cajun food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Been there twice this month, and it was great both times. Every time we go through Lafayette we stop there. Always great.

“Just to commercial”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

When they first opened many years ago, they were awesome. Now they are just to commercial and not the same. It's disappointing to see cos they have a great menu. But when you serve instant rice to a cajun, welllllllll it's kinda hard to swallow, lol. They worry more about the atmosphere and how much they can make from out of towners than the food and the locals...ijs

If you don't go to Prejeans, you will miss the complete experience. The dine in was great. The food is authentic to the community. Zadico music played nightly. Wow.

“Great Zydeco music, yummy food too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We visited PreJeans while on a family trip. The Cajun food was superb. I shared a large crawfish platter with our youngest that was more than enough for the 2 of us. It had Fried crawfish, crawfish étouffée, crawfish cornbread pie, and something called crawfish boulettes, The platter came with crawfish bisque too. That was a new one for me, very tasty. The gumbo was good and not too spicy. Everyone liked the food. My hubby and oldest daughter had their fill of oysters on the halfshell. The music was really cool, a young zydeco group that kept us entertained.

“Terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Went here through a recommendation and wished I hadn't bothered. They have live Cajun music, but the food was slop at best. I'm not a fussy eater, but left hungry because what was served was so poor.
