We were so disappointed with our last 2 visits, that we haven't been back! The last time we had crawfish here, they were overpriced and about the size of my thumb - that was the whole crawfish, not the tail! Haven't went here for crawfish since! On our most recent visit. I ordered a steak medium well - the waitress... More

Terrible service. Mediocre food. Not worth your time. I have tried this restaurant on four different occasions over a period of 6 years. I think I gave them time to improve- they didn't. I'm not a fussy customer, never made any extraordinary requests. Not worth it, don't bother, don't waste your time and money.

M husband loves the whole fried catfish. They also have wonderful fried shrimp. We had a dessert and it was very tasty. BUT.....the service is slow and the owners are not friendly. This restaurant is located at 7975 Cypress St West Monroe, LA 71291

Came here for lunch last Friday, after begging my hubby to take me. He didn't want to go because of all the bad reviews about the owner. It had been 2 years since I have been here and back then the shrimp was awesome. I thought the shrimp poboys and fries were excellent! My husband said it was very good,... More

The food at the Cheniere Shack is outstanding. I've only eaten lunch here but I've ordered a lot of things off the menu or the normal lunch special. The service is lacking and there never seems to be the same people that waited on you previously. Otherwise I like eating here but the service has to improve.

They have great food, but some can be down right hateful. I always treat them very well, but they are mean until you are finishing up your meal. They then turn into angles for a tip. Very obvious that is for sure

Tucked away in Calhoun, the Cheniere Shack is a good place for local fair. They serve crawfish in season, good pie, and good seafood general type fair. Depending on the day, service tends to be slow. Also, stay simple on your alcoholic drink requests, the bartender seems to have a very basic list. Great pie!

Rude staff from start to finish, despite stopping in about 1:00 and not many people in the restaurant there was long wait between being acknowledged as we stood in the doorway, then we were finally seated. Waitress was aware we were there, she was standing at the cash register texting on cell phone, we were finally seated and then sat... More

A few years ago our family went for crawfish, which we had done several times spending $300-$400 at a time. The last time we went, my mother in law brought wheat crackers that caused such a problem with the owners that we left without ordering. I was told that it had closed and reopened under NEW Management so we thought... More
