Looks like your neighbor's dining room -- tiny place with decorations left over from the 1960s. But fantastic Cajun food at very reasonable prices. On the hot scale of 1-5, 3 was the most I could stand for my jambalaya, but it was as good...More

Quite simply, this restaurant deserves to be #1 on the list of best restaurants in Palmdale as well as the Antelope Valley. The staff is friendly and helpful. We ordered takeout (healthy portions in both the zesty chicken salad and catfish po’boy, not to mention...More

The shrimp etouffee was great. I went for medium spice and it was just right. The pear cobbler was also tasty.

Awesome food. A little pricey but worth it. This is second time where my side wasn’t in the bag when I got home. Probably won’t stop me from going here again but check your bag/order at the restaurant in case something is missing.

I have been wanting to try for some time. Finally made it in. I had crawfish etouffee and my wife had jambalaya. Having cooked both ourselves, as a comparison, Lee Esthers is good, but lacked a bit of flavor. There was lots of crawfish in...More

I don't know if they take reservations. They are a small quaint place and may require some advance notice for large parties.
