Once you walk through the door you enter an amazing atmosphere. Staff is so nice and really makes you feel welcomed. From the cute mason jar glass to the personal loaf of cornbread they really make you feel special here. I order the gumbo and it was the best I've ever had! Will be returning to this amazing Cajun-Caribbean cooking.

Great creole food! Great atmosphere. Good beer selection. The crawdads are great, and the jambalaya is delish!

We came here for the first time on my night before my husband's birthday to celebrate. By luck or coincidence, we were seated in a back corner private booth, which was cozy, quiet, and neatly decorated. The ambiance is very cool all decked out in NOLA swag. Service staff was nice, actually a little too nice in a superficial or... More

We have been here so many times, and everytime we bring someone to try it, they reach the same conclusion we have. And that is, their food is outstanding. We appreciate the love they have for their food. You can taste it in everything they make. So, it may take a few extra minutes, but is so worth it. Me... More

We went on a busy weekend with the local festival and a light rain. Since they were busy and there was a good chance of getting wet outside we opted for the basement for the first time. Started out okay low ceiling and only 8 tables, with a full bar. The problem began when two large groups came in and... More

My favorite restaurant in Plainfield! Sounds crazy but the fried chicken is amazing! Crispy, tender juicy it was so good! The gumbo is addicting! It is hearty, tastey then has this after heat that at first may seem spicy then you want more! Kids has burgers and they were great too! Love their sweet potato fries! They always have great...

Moe Joe's reminds me of New Orleans from the food to the decor and unfortunately the noise. My crawfish etouffee was to die for. The taste was wonderful. The rice was perfect and there was a lot of crawfifh to enjoy/savor. In fact, I expect to enjoy the leftovers for lunch. I also enjoyed the side Caesar salad with the... More

My favorite are the corn fritters and their fried chicken! And they have Stella, my favorite beer. It's a festive environment and can get loud so you will want to be in the mood for that.
