Great atmosphere, from the factory setting to the blues music. The jambalaya was some of the best I have ever had. Wow, I'll be back. Even the French bread served with it was good - and very fresh. Next time I come to town, this will be my first stop.

Really enjoyed eating here. We ate on the second floor overlooking the river. Great atmosphere and the food was very good. Staff is very friendly and service was great. Price was very reasonable.

As a local, Broussard's is absolutely one of our favorites, ESPECIALLY now that they're in the brand new SMOKE-FREE location (and not being able to see over the bathroom stalls is a big plus too!). The portions are HUGE so come hungry or plan on taking a lot home. The potato skins are completely different and truly tasty (high praise... More

I've been to Broussard's many times and the food is always fabulous. However...... this is the first time I've been to their new location. Great improvement!!! Their old establishment almost smoked you out of the building. Two thumbs up for this place!!!

We had the alligator for an appetizer. I had alligator once before at another place and we were expecting a little serving. Broussard's was huge! I was also delicious! The steak was really good. It was more food than we could possibly eat. Just wonderful!

here with LST 325 on a 5 day port call. Brousards came with lots of favorable comments from other members of the crew. The staff was great but the food was nothing special. I was in on a Sunday night which may account for the lack luster food I don't know. The Jambalaya was more like spaghetti to me and... More

It was ok. The gator tails were tasty. The catfish had good flavor, but not the Cajun flavor we were expecting. Wonderful service very helpful and knowledgeable about their menu.

While in town on business my husband and I visited Broussards so that this Louisiana girl could kill a craving for authentic seafood like back home. Let me tell you.... I could've closed my eyes and clicked my heels and put that first bite in my mouth and thought I was back home in the swamplands of my Louisiana home.... More

We took friends from out of state to Broussards because we was looking for the best place to get the full flavor of Cape. There food is the best around and the view you get upstairs shows the river that tells the story of Cape. It was a win win for us. We know that we made the right choice... More
