We stopped by for a quick lunch after an airboat ride in the bayou and this local place is a straightforward choice. Local NOLA/Cajun food at very reasonable price. If you like all sort of fried seafood and stuff, you'll be more than happy.

Close to New Orleans, but a world away. Not far from Jean Lafitte National Park, you can find this friendly neighborhood sea food establishment. The soft shell crab poboys and the fried oysters were fresh and prepared just right. Enjoy

Although there were other non-locals here and it seemed like the one lady doing all of the order-taking, serving, and ringing up bills maybe wasn't sure how to treat strangers like us, after a while we felt comfortable. We needed a gluten and dairy-free meal and she was able to come up with suggestions that created a very nice home-style... More

Just as the title says- meh. Local diner with local fare. Service isn't overly friendly. Food is well-priced and decent in flavor.

years ago, we lived in louisiana, just outside of new orleans. boutte's bayou restaurant was our regular friday night dinner. after we moved away, the friday night dining experience, including the drive there, became almost legendary in my mind. perhaps the memory was greater than the actual experience. we were visiting new orleans this weekend, and decided to take a...

Fed my fam of 3 for around $45, with "seafood" And let me tell you the open face roast beef was yumm-oooo I am not a big "bean" fan but the red beans and rice were scrumptious! Go there! Eat local! Keep the little man in business!

If you're the New Orleans area, I strongly suggest you take this beautiful drive south that will take you to this great place. The seafood is perfect and the staff is as warm as the weather was when I visited Louisiana in august. And try the fried soft shell crab!

Just good basic Cajun food. Just a short drive further down the road from the airboat tour places. Doesn't look like much but does good cooking

A fish restaurant where locals go. Fresh fish, nice taste, nice family staff (I guess). Went here after Airboat Adventure. Not a tourist trap which i was very glad to see (after Bourbon Street). A nice memory

What an adventure, and what an AMAZING culinary experience! We took a drive from New Orleans to explore the surrounding bayou areas, planning a stop for lunch at another local spot. After discovering that the restaurant was closed on Sundays, we saw Boutte's. We knew nothing about it, except that there were already a large number of cars in the... More
