“Excellent place for Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

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 of tea), beer, all very tasty. If you're there make sure to ask if there is anything else that's not on the menu, occasionally they will have something not yet listed (like Oysters, which have now been added to the menu). Probably a good place to take a date for dinner. Recommended.

“Fun place in an old house, authentic Cajun food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

There was a DC branch that folded, but the Leesburg original was always better -- run by a lady who knows how to cook. They used to have entertainment at times, but check that because we've been in Florida for the winter. Good food for sure, and cheap.

“Best Cajun Restaurant Outside of Louisiana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great food.. everything is spicy even the cajun mac&cheese. Kids was glad it was spicy because they were able to splurge on the lemonade and Fanta. Love the poboys. Good but not great french bread. Would recc to others and been there many times.

“Authentic Cajun food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Not a formal, stuffy, white linen establishment, but REAL Cajun food prepared and served very well. Great appetizers, excellent crawfish etouffe, efficient, friendly service. Very small room, so recommend reservations. If you really like Cajun food, you'll love it!

“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

The CrawMac&Cheese, étouffée, fried catfish, fried crawfish tails, and jambalaya are delicious, written in descending order of awesomeness. Service was prompt and extremely friendly. The waitrons were expert in their suggestions of both food and wine. (I wish they wore name tags so I could compliment them by name!). The only "downer" is that the other patrons were very unfriendly -- it was downright wierd, given the close quarters and seating arrangement so very appropriate for Louisiana. Oh, well -- I guess you can't make customers get in the spirit, just sell them the food and hope they'll get it later. We will be back, and particularly plan to bring our Cajun transplant friend along. She will love it, and will get those other "NoVa" patrons communing in no time!
