Big Al, the 14-foot stuffed gator is seated in the middle of the dining room guarding some of our over 400 culinary medals and awards. Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I went here during an LA getaway with my wife. It's one of our favorite places in Lafayette, really in all of LA. Great cajun food, music, hospitality. My wife likes to stare at the cajun waiters when she thinks I'm not looking-LOL. We will always come here when passing through or staying anywhere near here. If you get the gator, get it fried.

I'm local and eat here about every other week or so. The crawfish enchiladas and Cochin de lait pie are very good. One of my favorites is the duck and andouille gumbo. The food is good, the service is good, and its fairly representative of the local food. On the weekends, when the live music is going on - not my favorite. The music is good, but its much too loud. Overall, good place to eat.

We had dinner here while in Lafayette. Started off with a fried alligator appetizer and a delicious corn gumbo soup. The blackened catfish with crawfish étouffée was excellent. We also had the Tuna Rockefeller which was also a hit. Loved the live Cajun music!

Always great service and I have never had any appetizer or entree that is not amazing! It is always a tradition when going from Texas to Louisiana or Floria for vacations.

Try the shrimp or fried green tomatoes appetizers then the seafood gumbo with whole crab claws in it. YUM!

Had dinner here.
The food is traditional Cajun, well done and big portions.
Being in the heart of Crawfish country there was plenty of such options on the menu.
Tried the Smoked Duck and Sausage Gumbo to start - very rich and hearty!
Had the Crawfish Etouffee and the Shrimp and Crawfish Fettuccine - both very good.
The atmosphere is great being themed and decorated well with Cypress trees and moss.
They have live Cajun music which adds to the experience.
If you are wanting good cajun food at reasonable prices and some local music, this is a good choice.
