Upon entering, diners are immediately met by a greasy, overcooked odor. I've eaten lots of seafood and Missouri is too far from either coasts to provide a remarkable meal.

Catfish is the only thing we've ever ordered here but it's always very good. The best part of the meal is the dirty rice.

Not a fancy place. Service was great. Food was all good with large portions. If you like Red Lobsters atmosphere, this place is not for you.

Being from Mississippi and/or Louisiana for 35 yrs, I feel I know a little about food, especially seafood. I have had 4 meals here this month, and the Catfish is the best I have had in 10 yrs!! The Chicken is great too, though typically only served on Sunday's. The only short-fall is in the side dishes i.e. dirty rice,... More

Was pretty excited to get gumbo from LeMaire's again; use to go to the old store/restaurant on the other side of town when the original owner had it!! Was great Louisiana gumbo...this time it was just too mild, no zip!! Now to be fair; maybe its because I live in Texas now and we pretty much eat our food hotter!!... More

We wanted to try this since it had good reviews. The staff was very friendly. The food was all good, but not true Cajun. I had catfish and it was very good. The cole slaw was good. My daughter had gator and the portion was good size. My husband and son had gumbo it was just ok. Not the best... More

I've eaten all of the world and this place ranks at the top for catfish! They know how to deep fry fish in the Cajun way. The atmosphere is "fishy" which adds to it. The servers are on the ball and pay attention to you. Highly recommend!

the food is outstandind prices very reasonable, service efficient and attentive. the catfish is one of the best I've had, their Cajun dishes make you think you are in Louisiana. can't think of any negative, oh by the way they have senior consideration.

Forget Sweetie Pie's - if you want good cooking and great food - then come to LeMaire. My mom and I stopped in when we were looking for some decent catfish. My mom got the catfish and I went with the gumbo. Oh my word, as my mom would say, the food was good, it was hot, and it wasn't... More
