Very casual and laid back atmosphere! Enjoyable place to relax and spend time eating a Cajun meal. We tried several of the dishes as this was our first time. We had crawfish etoufee, shrimp gumbo, red beans and rice with sausage, fried green tomatoes.... and, if that was not filling enough.... we topped it off with their version of bread pudding for dessert. All the dishes were good. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. Over-all experience...very good. Would go back.
Very conveniently located off Carothers Parkway in Franklin Tennessee. Open on Sunday.

My wife and I went to Cajun Steamer's for lunch yesterday and enjoyed our meals. My wife had the grilled shrimp po boy and I had the jambalaya. Along with her sandwich she substituted the included side for a cup of seafood gumbo (there was a up-charge). The sandwich and gumbo were just like you'd get in LA; flavorful with just the right amount of Cajun spice. I had the jambalaya and the flavor was great. My only complaint is there was scant little chicken and sausage in the dish. They don't charge very much for it but I'd rather pay a little more and get more of that great chicken and sausage with the rice. We'll be going back for dinner and cold beer sometime soon.

If you like crawfish and Cajun food, this is the place for you. The food is spicy and fresh. There is a covered and uncovered dinning area in back. Service is very good and the waitress are always cheerful. Every Monday oysters are half price.

We were just passing through Franklin on a vacation south and found Cajun Steamer's as a close by restaurant with a New Orleans themed menu. It sounded good and the menu looked good also but unfortunately this place has simply outgrown itself. It is basically located in a strip mall and is sized like a narrow dress shop but,,,, they have packed a full blown restaurant, bar, and entertainment all into the space where just one of these might have fit. The two piece band was basically standing in front of the door to the kitchen and had to dodge the servers as they transported food and dishes in/out. The tables are very tight and your neighbor's conversation will become yours whether desired or not. We started with some cocktails at the very small bar. They were OK and priced on the high side. We got a table for dinner but like most of the tables in this place it was so small the dishes wouldn't all fit on it. The food was OK but not well presented. Service was stressed as the place was busy plus the congestion that the logistics caused. I think these folks have something to offer but they really need to re-think the plan.

Most trips to the Steamer have been very good, this time not so much. The outdoor seating and service was very good, but the food was only so, so at best. We may give it another shot, but it will be a while.
