Cajun food in the heart of Lancaster PA! Good service and good food. Where else can you find fried alligator in Lancaster?

“Not as great as I was accustomed to”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

Took my wife, daughter and grandson. First they were out of alligator. Then we were surprised (and disappointed) that the sweet sticks were no longer on the menu. Have always enjoyed the atmosphere. Waiter (bartender) was very attentive and helpful, although it wasn't very busy. Grandson loved the chicken toes (fingers). Rest of the meal was enjoyed by all. Will still go back but isn't quite the same without Sharon there.

“Open mic night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

Food is always excellent. And hey trip advisor says they are closed Thursdays but I am most certainly sitting here enjoying the great music, yummy steamed clams and a huge juicy burger. I think it's mean if someone is messing with these good people. Burger was only $5 in the bar nothing is over priced who put down that the menu is$$$. They are crazy. The gumbo is so authentic and the Cajun woopie pie , my favorite. If I lived in Columbia I be here at least once a week supporting such a treasure !

“Meh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

Not the most awful food but far from great or even good. Calling it Cajun is a stretch. Waitress was nice enough.

“Worth the trip - lots of fun and it's the best Cajun in central PA!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

Recently, my extended family of 6 met up in Columbia to try Prudhomme's. We ordered a bunch of different dishes and drinks and came away happy. The waitstaff is friendly, the decor/atmosphere is fun, and the food was....good enough.

Seriously, what were you expecting? Some of the dishes were great, one or two were awful, but most were perfectly fine (with the help of a bottle of hot sauce). Yes, it is probably the worst Cajun I've ever had...but so what?!? It was worth the drive from Gettysburg (approx 1 hr) and it is probably the best Cajun north/west of DC or NYC.

In short, if you are anywhere nearby (or even close to nearby) it is worth the trip. Just don't think the Prudhomme name means you are eating in NOLA.
