Cajun Depot has excellent food and an authentic atmosphere. It is one of our favorite places to eat. The stuffed catfish and crab cakes make my mouth water just to think of how tasty. Be prepared to fight the Sunday crowd for a seat, as well as Friday and Saturday night. However, we have learned to go a bit early,... More

We had lunch on a Friday afternoon, no crowd, no wait and a super friendly waitress. Quick service and good food too. Try the flounder Po Boy sandwich and cole slaw.

The decor was nice, didn't seem to match the plastic glasses or the way the waitresses dressed. But, we came for the food. Our waitress was very nice and efficient. We had to wait a minute to be seated and a little longer to give drink order, but nothing to get upset over. Warm bread was brought out with our... More

Love this place! A bit out of the town right by the old train station. My date had a burger, says it was the best she ever had!! I had blackened chicken which also was fantastic! Will be back! Only concern was it was a hot day and their AC doesn't do the job. Was very warm inside!

I ordered the mozzarella cheese sticks as an appetizer and crawfish etouffe as my entree. The entree came with green beans , French fries and a garden salad. I ordered key lime pie for dessert. I got sweet tea to drink. The cheese sticks with marinara were excellent, the greens in my salad were crisp served with outstanding 1000 island... More

I hope it was just an off night, but this was some of the blandest Cajun I've eaten. The jambalaya was more like oriental buffet chicken fried rice, and the etoufee was almost without taste. The red beans and rice were really good and the portions were very generous. Nonetheless, not-so-great food in quantity is just... Not so great.

We have been enjoying the Cajun Depot for years.Staff has always been professional and friendly.Food has always been amazing!However,this past meal and a few before was a disappointment! The staff was dressed so inappropriate.Shorts were too short and the over all feel of a family atmosphere was gone.I shouldn't have to see the staffs bottoms hanging out of their shorts.Perhaps...

My wife drove over to Ellijay to pick me up from work because my truck was in the shop, I thought a good thank you would be to take her to Cajun Depot for dinner. Service was good but the place only had other table eating which was odd because they have always been packed when I was there before.... More
