With the inlaws in town wanting cajun food, we went here. The waitress was horrible, the food was all salt, and my ceasar salad was crap. Even a monkey cant screw up a ceasar salad, how do you screw up a ceasar salad? but I digress.... So I called to complain. Of course, just as I thought, the manager didn't care. The manager was HORRIBLY rude from the word 'hello'!! Maybe the locals think this place is the bomb, but I wouldn't eat there again if it were the only restaurant left in the world. If I could rate this place less than one star I would.

The food is good, not great. Growing up in Louisiana I have a good bit of cajun food and they serve that well. However, it is a bit overpriced for what you get.

To start off, our courteous waiter Matthew should be awarded as the waiter of year, service was quick and very professional. We had the fried alligator meat but asked to be prepared as grilled, stuffed soft shell crab, and seafood gumbo soup. Everything was cooked to perfection, we cleaned up our food so fast and licked bottom clean. The title for Award Winning Cajun Cuisine is definitely justified for this restaurant, a must visit restaurant.

I was in Lafayette for an overnight stay. I was advised that Prejeans was a quality seafood and Cajun restaurant so I decided to try it. Nice place with a nice décor.

I ordered the seafood platter which consisted of; Frog legs, shrimp, oyster, catfish, alligator, stuffed shrimp & stuffed crab served with rice dressing, Cajun fries and corn macque choux.

The only thing edible on the plate was the frog leg and the oysters. Everything else was totally over cooked. It tasted like it had been cooked on old oil, like you would get at some all you can eat place.

Possibly their Cajun food is ok, but I will definitely not go back to see. Their service was mediocre at best.

Very over priced for what you get. I live in Corpus Christi, so I know what I am talking about when it comes to QUALITY seafood. This most certainly was not.
