Not inexpensive, but worth the price. Portions are smaller than they used to be but the food is excellent. Emphasis is on Cajun food.Highly recommend the gumbo and jambalya.

Had the opportunity to dine at Dee Felice for my birthday in February. The atmosphere is very cozy with a live jazz band. Prices were reasonable. My party enjoyed Filet Mignon and Fettucini Alfredo. We’d dine there again.

We came for the live jazz music after dinner. Very nice and we recommend. The music was excellent and we had good drinks....beer, cocktails, and bourbon.

Had the gumbo, and I must say it was pretty darn good. Would have preferred a roux based, but that's OK. Ordered the burger, and it was quite tasty. We sat at the bar, and service was prompt and friendly. Will try the etouffe next...More

Hi-Go to their actual website. It shows the steaks on the menu. I've never had a steak there. It's a New Orleans style menu with many options. I usually get the shrimp Po' Boy. Google them and you can get their website!
