“Good food, nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

At their suggestion, we shared the seafood platter which included catfish, shrimp, shrimp etouffee, salad and garlic bread. Everything was very good, including the garlic bread. On the side, we also had just a bite of their boudin which was very tasteful. Eating in was an interesting experience as the restaurant is quite homey.

“Meh...it's ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A friend of ours (native of Lake Charles) recommended Leonard's for lunch or dinner. They recommended the Etouffee stuffed baked potato. They didn't have the crawfish etoufee (out of season) so we had the shrimp etouffee. I personally thought it was just Ok. My wife had the fried shrimp and it too was just Ok.

In my opinion, Steamboat Bills has much better Cajun food and seafood in Lake Charles.

“One of my favorite spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Leonard's is one of my favorite lunch spots ... my favorite is the pork chop sandwich. Of course, everything I've had there is good, but it's something about their pork chops that are just yummy! If you like cracklings, this is a great place to pick up one greasy bagful - or two!

“Take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Never been inside---Ordered take out---Their salads are to die for---Poboys are a great hit. Meals are large enough to share with a friend or family member

“So glad we went”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Really enjoyed the taste of Leonards Food Quarters food. We went because TripAdvisor had high ratings, and weren't disappointed. We ate boudin, house salad, boudin balls, and red beans and rice.
