“Love the cajun food here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Service here is always good! Staff is friendly and the prices are good. The stir fry dinner is really a treat but kind of a big order and hard to be able to eat it all. I haven't found anythere here that isn't good. Bread pudding is to die for!!!! So is the gumbo! My favorite is the red beans and rice and is usually what I order. Also love the large serving of cornbread you get with this. They have the best salads in town!!! The only place anywhere where I will eat a crouton. Most are too hard. These are wonderful. The ONLY downside to this restaurant is the bathroom. It needs to be torn out and completely re-done. OR have a nice one for the day time crowd. I guess if you're there late night and drunk, you won't care how it looks or smells.

“It just depends on what you know...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

When I rate a place like this, I try to be fair as do most. So I'll start off by saying service was pretty good. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. She informed us that étouffée was a blonde not dark color as most are and proceeded tell us about the specials. I had the blackened sirloin w/veggies and a cup of gumbo. The steak was seasoned nicely but arrived room temp. while being on a black sizzle plate which was also room temp. Gumbo was also seasoned nicely.

My wife had a combo with chicken étouffée, red beans and rice and jambalaya. Red beans and rice had a nice flavor. The chicken in the étouffée tasted frozen and was dry while the rest tasted like Chicken a La King and the jambalaya was some over cooked rice with a glob of tomato sauce with sausage over it. So overall my experience was not that great and understand we all have different flavor profiles but most of the items I mentioned needs some attention. Not sure if I'm in that area again I will stop in. As someone else mentioned the bread pudding was pretty good.

“Second vist will not be aThird”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Broussard's in Cape has cajun cuisine that I would not rate very high. The wait staff is very good and they are friendly. The food lacked flavor and the red beans and rice looked like it had been setting in the bowl for sometime before it was delivered. Worst experience is the bathroom--- for men. The bathroom gives you a feel for how clean an establishment is and this was not good. A women coming out said "the lady's bathroom was horrible". This may be more a bar restaurant in a college town but no excuse for this lack of attention. Will not be back, no third time for me.

“Cajun in Cape Girardeau”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Broussards has been a downtown institution for many years. Generally the food quality is quite good, decent selection, cold beer. The bathrooms are pretty disgusting, though
