Down home folks serving authentic Cajun food. Nothing fancy here, just good eats at a good price with friendly folks. My wife and I lived in the Gulf Coast area while in the military and know Cajun/Creole food. I measure every place by the etouffee,...the crawfish tails were small but there were at least four in every bite and the flavor was spot on. My father in law had never had Cajun food and really wanted to try crawfish pie. He got the crawfish platter, some of everything and loved every bite. I had the crawfish 1/2 and 1/2 etouffee and fried tails. The tails were tender with just the right amount of coating. If you want white linen, snooty staff small portions and high prices, go somewhere else, because all you will get here is great food and great folks who make you feel at home.More

What a nice little cafe. Very busy on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of Cajun foods, but also hamburgers and pie. My fries were a little cold, but still good. Would eat here again. Closed on Sunday and Mondays.

We avoided this place as neither one of us thought we cared for this type of food! Finally our dog setter talked us into going for lunch. We did and have kicked ourselves ever since. This is some of the best food we've ever eaten....The place is small and packed, but even so the owner/chef took time out to sit with us and ask about our meal. He then explained his type of cajun/creole food and where it came from....they should name this town after him! It's been weeks and in my mind and can still taste his food!More

When we drive from Memphis to Daphne to visit, we always make a trip to Silverhill to eat at our favorite restaurant, Cafe Acadiana. The food there never disappoints. The seafood is fresh and prepared with attention to detail. Today our server was Nikki and...our service was amazing. We ordered the lunchtime special of catfish and shrimp. This comes with a side and a trip to the salad bar. The salad bar has a wide range of offerings and the foods are fresh and inviting. This restaurant is packed at lunch time with locals, which is always a good sign of quality food. We will be back.More

We ordered one of their specials, Creole Platter, and it had a ton of food on it and everything was delicious. I ordered their hamburger steak with stuffed potato and really loved the flavor of if as well. The place is always packed and it’s...a little noisy, but the food is always great and service is phenomenal.More

Eighteen of our neighborhood group had dinner tonight. The service was amazing and the food excellent! A wonderful atmosphere for a group of many or a few. The chef came out to see how we were enjoying the food. Only in a place as great...as this is that kind of attention provided. Thank you Cafe Acadiana for a fantastic evening we will be back.More

Have made a review before but wanted to add another one. We have been eating here for several years. My daughters are now grown, and in grad school, and one is in the midst of planning to get married. Of all the places she considered...to cater the wedding it came down to Cafe Acadiana hands down. We are very happy that she can have the wedding catered by Cafe Acadiana. There are lots of caterers available but to have the fine food prepared by these folks is a blessing. Whether you're looking for a good meal or feeding a crowd, you can't go wrong with Cafe Acadiana.More

We were in Silverhill for their Heritage Festival (which was just precious - cool town) and on our way out we spotted the restaurant, and it was lunchtime, so we went in. Greeted at the door by a welcome crew, seated immediately while the hostess...filled us in on their special menu, we felt right at home! The atmosphere is super clean, cute and comfortable. The waitress was with us in minutes. There was 1 TV on the wall in the room we were in - not at all intrusive. I ordered the Shrimp and Crawfish Etouffee combination. It came with a trip to the very nice salad bar. The salad bar had all the basics, nice and fresh, and some very good fresh pasta salads as well. The food came out fairly quickly and it was delicious and delightful. Louisiana home cooking at its finest! The prices are very, very fair, too. We will be back, and will refer our friends to this little treasure in Silverhill, Alabama. It's just 2 miles off 59 as you head to the beach - great place to stop!More

Great little restaurant. Off the beaten path. Food is great! Service is efficient and extremely friendly. I had shrimp and catfish. They have a "loaded potato " as a side and it is wonderful.
