Really enjoyed our meal there yesterday. They took a reservation for 14 people with short notice, had our table ready when we arrived, and provided very good service. The food was very good, with plentiful servings. About a third of the table was originally from the South and were very happy with the New Orleans style Cajun cuisine. The fried... More

We went to Fontenot's for breakfast. I'm thinking most people don't know they are open for breakfast as there was no wait unlike the other breakfast joints in the area. The huevos were very tasty, service was great. For sure will go back to enjoy breakfast on the patio.

Ahi Tuna was a complete and utter joke. Do not believe "sushi grade"! This is a lie as it was clearly frozen and terribly unfresh. Rice was hard and old. Mashed potatoes were overcooked, gummy, and oily. Gumbo did not taste like it used fresh ingredients. This place purports "finest and freshest ingredients." From my experience here, that is a...

Great spot for Cajun seafood & specialty dishes. We enjoyed the gumbo, seafood sampler, shrimp and the chicken piccata was packed with flavor. Ample free parking but no free wifi offered.

We had our first meal in Fraser at Fontenot's, at one time a real Cajun Seafood place. It's probably lost some of its Cajun roots, but the food is excellent. If you want etoufee the way mama made it, forget it. But if you want good food, this is your place.

I have gone here numerous times over the years. We had service issues, it's seems we were almost non-existent and for a party of 4 adults that is surprising especially as it did not seem (to me) that they were busy). Just acknowledge us and then let us know if you or the restaurant are running behind and bring us... More

Family of 4 all ordered meals and no one really liked what they got. On top of that it made us sick later. I feel like this is a better place then what we experienced. Maybe we just got there on a bad night.

It was hard to choose from the extensive menu (something for everyone) but my Rajun Cajun was so good I will find it hard to order anything else. This spicy combo of blackened fish, boiled and fried shrimp under a wonderful etouffee plus fantastic veggies and mashed potatoes is a wonderful combination of flavors.
