We have been here several times and the crab legs are always the best and the portions are good. We always get the crab legs and have not been disappointed yet. The bar can be a bit noisy, so ask to sit further away if you want to be able to talk and not get bumped into by people hovering.

This restaurant has good food however they can not get the crab legs right. I've had them four times and they're always overcooked. Their other dishes are great but the portions are small for the price. Service is always good and the environment is nice.

Cajun Steamer is to Cajun food as Tex-Mex is to Mexican food. It's a good chain restaurant adaptation of Cajun cuisine targeting a real general audience. On a business dinner visit I had Tilapia & Shrimp Rockefeller served over Cajun mashed potatoes. The dish was covered with a creamy spinach and bacon sauce. The portion was almost overdone but the...

Our favorite stop for cajun food. The shrimp and grits are amazing. The raw oysters were great too! Live music on the weekend in the evenings but you can sit indoors where it's not too loud.

I had the peel and eat shrimp platter and the oysters char grilled. Not authentic. I won't be back. Just ok , not good. We could have to went to red lobster and got better food.

Food is delicious. Portions have gotten smaller over time. For the money the portions are not big enough. Restaurant is expensive for the portions but the food is delicious. They serve oysters which are hard to find on this side of town.

Business lunch and it was great. Portion size was perfect. I couldn't believe what happened. I ordered oyster Po Boy and actually got a pearl from one of them (albeit a small one). Service was terrific. I would highly recommend.

This place is a really good place to eat. I am not a "spicy" food eater, but I've been to this restaurant so many times that I know what to order. I would recommend this place to anyone because the food has always been good and the service is always SUPER! If people are looking for any Cajun style food,... More

The menu sounded good and my husband and I were shopping at the Pinnacle Mall there, so we tried it. We got inside to find several men inside at the bar and tv's on every wall. Turns out, it was happy hour. Anyway, we both ordered and had the catfish and shrimp with a side of pinto beans and sausage.... More

Decent menu selection with some great fish choices. I wasn't as impressed with some of the seasonings used on the vegetable side dish, too peppery. I also, in the future, will request any sauces on the side as my tilapia was coated too heavily with sauce. Otherwise, a friendly staff, clean environment, but a little chilly and noisy.
