This place has been here awhile and it is always predictable. Not cheap but tasty Cajun and I suppose a few Creole dishes. I am sure there are better spots in town that the locals go to but it is easy to stop in at this joint and they do a good job.

First off I'm from New Orleans and I know seafood and Cajun cooking. I'm reading some of these reviews and cannot believe what I'm reading. I just ate there and was not impressed at all. When I saw the prices I thought I was up north somewhere. Come on $21 for a catfish plate. It did not come with a... More

Great local place for Cajun food. The server was very helpful since my mom has food allergies. There was a good local zydeco band playing, too. It was a little pricey but I had a nice time.

If you are driving cross country on I-10 this is a great stop very convenient and great Louisiana food. The location is only 3 miles off I-10 at the I-49 intersection in Lafayette. We spent the night but it would also be easy to stop there and get right back on the freeway to continue your journey. The service was... More

We had the chicken and sausage gumbo but unfortunately had little or no sausage and the shrimp gumbo had just a few shrimp, no okra, onions, or celery. The hush puppies were very good.

Enjoyed our dinner at Prejean's. There was so much we wanted to try that we finally opted for a few appetizers instead of entrees. Had the crawfish boudin balls, the alligator cheesecake, the mardi gras oysters, and the (can't remember the name) shrimp wrapped in bacon. All was good, although the shrimp were a little salty for me. Standouts were... More

I was raised on outstanding creole cuisine in New Orleans and have eaten several versions of gumbo. The gumbo here was thicker than I'm used to (chicken and sausage), and it was delicious . It's served with rice and I would recommend it. Now on to the catfish review. My husband ordered fried catfish and he was served a very... More
