Description: For a hearty taste of Creole cuisine with a flare, there's no place like Jambalaya! Located on Pheasant Run Resort's own indoor version of Bourbon Street, the lively atmosphere only adds to the finger-licking flavor of every heartfelt dish. Featuring live entertainment every Friday and Saturday from 9pm-12m, along with culinary classics like Cajun Calamari, gumbo, Po Boys, and of course Jambalaya! We also offer a classic build your own burger for those finicky eaters. It's plain to see why Fox Valley locals and visitors alike consider Jambalaya one of the best in Chicagoland. Join us every Sunday morning from 9:00am - 1:00pm for our Bourbon Street Breakfast Buffet. Our culinary team is preparing a fresh menu each weekend. The menu will feature home-cooked goodness with breakfast favorites such as eggs benedict and omelets made-to-order plus decadent new recipes including Red Velvet Waffles, and much more!

“Not a cajun joint”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was disappointed. I'm not a fan of branding if it's not supported. The atmosphere was fantastic, the prices were of a good value, the drinks were fine.

If you're going to hold yourself out as a restaurant that is themed, then spend the time and money to research the theme and make the food authentic. The menu is limited, but that's okay with me. Limited menus normally mean the joint is REALLY good at a few things.

Sorry folks....the Jambalaya and Gumbo just weren't good.

“food was ok”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Food was average and the prices were high. Staff acted too busy to care about us after food was delivered.
