The prices reflect the atmosphere more so than the quality of the food so a good meal can be obtained at a very reasonable price. There is a variety of offerings and it is prepared well. The uniqueness of the menu in the Marquette area distinguishes this restaurant from the others.

The service was friendly and helpful especially with the answers to the dietary limitations. Both of us enjoyed our selections which were shrimp based.

The atmosphere is OK but the long narrow room makes limitations. It gives you the feeling of being more in a bar than a restaurant but not a low class bar. The owner seems to be trying to give it a N'Orleans feel but has to be careful not to overstep into the tacky atmosphere. If it were my choice I would suggest more small to nicely framed medium sized pictures and sketches on the walls that reflect the Louisiana Bayou or Gulf Coast.

I have a meal here everytime I come to Marquette. The food and service have always been terrific. It's nice to have a unique choice in local independent restaurants.

Excellent boiled and barbequed shrimp by the pound. Good seafood bisque. This place flies in their seafood and uses all fresh ingredients. Definitely have the bread pudding for dessert - warm with Jack Daniels Sauce - some of the best I have had. Service is very fast and the staff welcoming and friendly. Atmosphere is funky and cosy in this below street level hide-away. Visiting on a cold blustery sub-zero Marquette day, this stop was a pleasant warming spot.

Beyond a doubt, this restaurant is underated in TripAdvisor for Marquette, MI. To many fast food ratings or take-out for low-end food. BUT, this is a REAL restaurant and one of the very best around. Genuine Cajus/Creole food in a convincing atmosphere, good service and a great bar. The kitchen is the standout, however. If you want a unique cuisine prepared New Orleans-style, you will not be disappointed with Lagniappe, as it is indeed "something special".

Service was great, food was average. Super spicy is not cajun or Louisiana, but it had good flavor aside from the spice
