A wonderful restaurant in Ellijay with authentic Cajun flavored seafood. Staff are friendly and anxious to provide service as good as the food. The gumbo is awesome. The well prepared food included fresh and natural oysters that provided us with an added surprise of a real pearl. You will enjoy dining here.

We stopped in for lunch and we loved this place. You could tell that the locals were in there having their lunch too. I wish we had a place like this near us. The staff was great and the food was wonderful. We will be back the next time we are in Ellijay.

We were just passing by and it was lunch time. Had passed through this .e town, and was going to go back to a restaurant we had seen. Started to turn around and spotted this place. Fantastic move. Talked to some locals. People come from Atlanta just to eat there. Great food and employees. When we left, there was a... More

Small place with only 12 tables so you will have to wait. Good salad and rolls. Fried shrimp looked great. Had the crab cakes and they were just okay.. needed more crab and less filling. They do give you plenty of food with salad and two sides with most entrees. Right at the old railroad train depot so the atmosphere... More

We decided to eat lunch here today after feeling kind of "meh" about the places downtown, and since the Jolly Roger was closed. We were pleasantly surprised! The ambiance feels like the French quarter in the dining room, the seafood is fresh and deliciously breaded(very thin and crisp layer of breading on all fried seafood), and it tasted very fresh!...

Great dinner as usual! In town with friends and always a favorite spot. I had the BBQ shrimp (cajun spicy) and my husband had blacken Fish . Both dishes were perfection. If you get the shrimp dish ask for side of white rice and mix it in the yummy sauce. Always a great meal!!!

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
