Lunch Break from a meeting, Chicken Fried Chicken w/Cream sauce was very good, Garlic cheesy mashed potatoes tasty, the spicy heat took me by surprise initially. Server was excellent, quick on taking our order, kept our drinks filled. A roamer kept all the dirty dishes off the tables. Food was a little slow getting to us, rushed us to get... More

We have ate here since they opened years ago. It has went down hill a bit since the original owner passed away but we still enjoy this cajun resturant over the newer one in town (that was opened by previous employees from this place). Most of the time the food is great but have gotten bad lobster bisque and crab... More

I recently visited Boudreax's to celebrate my son's 18th birthday. The staff were very nice and polite. The food was pretty good. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a little less salt in some of your dishes, otherwise it was pretty good!

We started our meal with the fried Alligator bites and they were very good I don't remember what the sauce was with them but it had a kick that was just perfect. My husband had the Lobster Bisque and Chicken Sausage Jambala he was very pleased and would order them both again. I had the house Bloody Mary which came... More

I got the chicken fried chicken and I loved it! The gravy that comes with it is the bomb! I also got the crab bisque before I got my main meal and that was delicious as well.

We had dinner with friends this evening. My wife and I started with Crab Bisque. Then we has the Seafood Sauté and a side salad. We split every thing and everything was great! Nice sized portions and we could't eat it all. Vickie, our server did a great job to boot.

It started well enough with several orders of Crab Bisque, Fried Pasta, and Fried Alligator. Everyone thought the bisque was delicious and we were prepared for a good experience with our entree selections. Unfortunately there was great disappointment ahead for a couple of our group. The Crab Cake order was over breaded and the Tuna Steak was tainted. It must... More

If you like Cajun food this is the best in St. Joseph. The food is good & portions are large but the price is a little high & I prefer my Cajun with a bit more spice. This is a good place for families with children or older folks as it has lots of "safe" not-too-spicy options.

Thank Michelle C
