My husband and I purchased a Groupon and it was about to expire, so we had to make the trip to Ragin Cajun. When we arrived at about 6pm on a recent Saturday evening, we were surprised to find no indoor waiting room and that there would be a 30 minute wait and no shelter to shield us from the wintry weather. No heatlamp outside either... what were we to do? Stand on the porch and freeze while waiting for our table. My husband and I were not happy. But, alas, the groupon was expiring soon, so we waited. When finally seated, we were lucky enough to not have to sit near the front door. It kept being opened and closed by customers waiting to be seated. Some were confused by a lack of waiting area and chose to stand over eating customers who were unfortunate enough to be seated near the door. Others kept the door open, letting out the precious warm air that paying customers were trying to enjoy.
Our soups took 40 minutes to arrive. Their version of French Onion Soup was GREAT... Lobster Bisque... nothing special, basically a waste of money and room in my husband's belly. Our entrees were average. He got the over priced chicken and shrimp etouffee; good, but nothing to write home about. I got a pasta with sundried tomatoes and garlic, which was very nice. I could not eat too much because I finished the onion soup and devoured too much bread and garlic while waiting for our soup to arrive. Overall, not worth the trip. I should have listened to my husband when he suggested going to 10th Ave Burrito.
Do not buy groupon... at least unless the weather is nice enough to wait outside and you bring a bottle of wine to pass the "wait time."
