Meet friends for lunch in Dallas at Dodie’s. We started out with a round of Bloody Mary’s which were good. My wife had a cup of seafood gumbo which was very good. I had a salad and seafood combo. Fried catfish, jumbo shrimp and oysters...More

The gumbo is smothered in rice and virtually no seafood(literally 1 piece of shrimp in a cup). The fried green tomatoes were good but they ruined them putting a tartar sauce on it, bad move.

Went here to help cheer my daughter up after her friend passed away and let me tell you the staff was amazing, the food awesome "I'm a Cajun girl" and the sassy pants drink good. Overall had a very pleasant time.

Really, really love the bar area at this place. Cool set inside/outside setup. Fun people and bartender. The food is a little less impressive. I had the baked oysters with bacon and blue cheese, and they were WAY overcooked. The crab stuff mushrooms were pretty...More

The owners of this place have obviously never been to New Orleans! This was a horrible attempt at cajun food. The food had no taste, no seasonings. I was so disappointed as I love cajun food. My shrimp brochette was covered with so much horrible...More
