“If You Enjoy Cunard You'll Love Chef Roy's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

One doesn't usually find duck on a menu, especially in a rather small town. Not the case at Chef Roy's. A delightful meal of duck breast with sweet potatoes and eggplant French fries. At a rather modest price. Do not miss the duck or the eggplant French fries !

It's a busy rather small restaurant, but I'm confident it must be the best in Rayne, Louisiana.

“Very good food in a casual dining atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

The shrimp enchilada is so rich and delicious. I can only eat the single order. Any of the seafood entrees are good as well.

“OK, not great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Meh...maybe it's because we visited in the off-season and early in the week, but after eating our way through a wide swath of Cajun Country for most of the previous week, this restaurant failed to impress. Service was slow and indifferent, the dining room décor harkened back to the 1970s, and the food was high in price and large in portion size, but only mediocre in flavor and originality. Being in the Frog City Café located in Rayne, the Frog Capital of Louisiana, I of course had to try the frog legs...but I actually preferred my spouse's gumbo (and this is after eating gumbo for seven straight days, sometimes in little hole-in-the-wall rural diners).

“A Very Good Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

We had a bowl of gumbo, a plate of fried eggplant (outrageous!), crab cakes, and a shrimp dish. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. Well worth the stop.
