I love their fried gator, dirty rice and cajun seasoned french fries. The service can be spotty, but generally is fine. I have eaten here several times and always had great food.

This place is not for high class dining, but if you want to stuff your face with authentic Cajun food, then look no further. I love the fried catfish, and that dipping sauce is crazy good! Have always enjoyed this place, as it is clean,...More

Food is good. Authentic creole food. Restaurant is clean, but certainly not a great dine in atmosphere.

Da Cajun Shack is true Bayou Arcadian Cuisine. The dishes are about as authentic as a true cajun chef could make. The catfish is excellent and the Jumbalaya is out of this world. A must go to place.

Gator bites had more bread than meat and was not seasoned well. Gumbo was not good. Red beans and rice were pretty good.

We have been patrons of Da Cajun Shak for many years. Consequently, we've developed a list of favorites that we have to have every time we visit. We love "The Swamp." It has spicy fries, fried catfish, fried alligator, fried crawfish, dirty rice, and jambalaya....More
