“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Got in to town right at lunch and this restaurant was across the street from the hotel. Boudin balls were great.

“Geaux Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Cajun Steamer is one of my favorite restaurants in Franklin. The food is tasty without being overly spicy. The beer is cold and the staff is easy on the eyes.

“Terrible Excuse For Cajun Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

This was our third time to eat here and our last. It started out ok the first two times but was absolutely inexcusably terrible on this last visit. The peel and eat shrimp had no flavor. The shrimp were already peeled and over cooked. I ordered the "jumbo" shrimp platter. The shrimp were 40 count and the stuffed shrimp were by far the worst I've ever had. Service was average. I read some reviews that call this place excellent or very good. Must be friends of the restaurant or maybe they have never had descent Cajun food. My disappointment meter is off the charts!

“A Cajun Restaurant Staple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Cajun Steamer has easily become my go to restaurant when I am in the Franklin area. The atmosphere is casual and laid-back with a touch of NOLA decor.

Simply put, the food is very good! The Stuffed Shrimp appetizer is full of flavor with a nice portion of crab meat in the stuffing. Melvin's Blackened Chicken, Catfish & Fried Shrimp, Crawfish Etouffee and the Corn and Crab Bisque are all favorites.

Don't be surprised when you can't help but watch as tables around you dive into their trays of Boiled Crawfish (Seasonal) or Snow Crab Legs Clusters. There are feasts going on all around you!

Service is accommodating (average).

NASHVILLE NAVIGATOR TIP:
I order an "open kitchen" small serving of just crab meat and mix it in Corn and Crab Bisque... oh yeah!

“Best”

Love, love the gumbo. We come back often and have brought many friends. Some from out of state who wish we could ship the gumbo to them!
