Two appetizer one cup of bisque crab platter, glass of wine, root beer and one desert to go. Our bill was $75. That's... More

We have always enjoyed the old St. John, this new location I believe has taken the great food and combined with an authentic rustic atmosphere that makes for a perfect evening of dining out. Seafood and steaks, both are my favorite. Not a great wine list, but they don't mind if you bring your own ( pay a corkage fee)... More

You will have to wait for an hour if you haven't got a table. the place is crammed with people in high spirits and that's the best part of it. Food is mostly local cajun but you can have steaks as well. Now, I'm no expert in cajun kitchen, but it seems to me it has the same traditional flavour... More

St. John has moved to a remodeled former pecan factory just around the corner from its original location. The food is the best in the area. The crab cake is unmatched. The steaks are top notch. We never miss the chance to take visitors to this gem in St. Martinville. Stop by and tell Chip hello. This is money well... More

As with all of the other reviews each time we head to St. Martinsville we eat at St. John's. Our meals are always delicious and well prepared. Service is excellent and the atmosphere has not suffered with their moving to a larger facility. Everthing is home made right there in the restaurant...and I ALWAYS have the blue cheese dressing which... More

We came on a saturday, and the atmosphere was very happy. We waited at the bar for availability which took 20 mins as promissed, and enjoyed the drinks there. Dinner was excellent, both meat and sea food, and the attention from the owner was very welcoming

For dinner we have created our own surf & turf. I order the two crab cake dinner, and my husband orders the 9 oz filet.... More
