Nice restaurant in this town. Two generation family owned. Classic Louisiana seafood. Attractive building with several rooms for dining, I had the stuffed shrimp and my husband had stuffed crab. Both were good and real stuffing of crab (not mixed with a lot of bread.

I had "shrimp three ways" and my husband had "crawfish three ways". Both were delicious and very reasonable priced. The portions were huge. My shrimp dinner had gumbo, creole and fried. My husbands crawfish meal had fried, bisque and etouffee.

The food is always consistent. I love the tarter sauce and cheeseburger po boys! The decor is lack luster though and could use updating. It s also very dark! Food is always good though

The highlight of living in Opelousas, Soileau has never disappointed me, and I've eaten there at least twenty times. From their Super Seafood Platter, to Lobster, to a Hamburger, food is always served hot and plenty of it! Eat in or take out, I love the dining experience of Soileau's.

I am so sorry to pan this place, but the food was so mediocre that I cannot recommend it to anyone. If you're in south Louisiana, you should be getting great food but this wasn't it. I had a big platter and I left huge amounts of food. The stuffed pepper was weird. It had seafood filling which was not... More
