The Tuna was rare when served to our table. The waitress agreed and took it from our table but was stopped by the manager who said it was always served medium rare. We asked for it to be cooked more and he asked us at what temperature we wanted the fish. Really!! Just done. I finally said just one more... More

I took my nephews here after their graduation. There was about 20 of us, but the server and her help made it look easy! Not a big lover of seafood but the fish n chips was just for me.

Was in the area to visit Barber Motorsport Park. Found them on Yelp and the reviews looked good as did the food. I had the Bourbon Street Fettuccini. It was very good but I expected some spice from a "Cajun" restaurant. Being born and raised in New Orleans, I expected more authentic given the name. The waitress was really sweet... More

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.
