    Someone recommended me this place and the "Blackened Alligator"... Really good! Very tasty and spiced. I liked too the Crawfish. Crowded place with live music and dance floor.

    Get the crab or shrimp. The crawfish etufee & baked potato are amazing. The fried alligator is a must! Save room for dessert. The caramel cheese cake, bread pudding and pecan pie are great choices.

    Get a bowl of gumbo and a salad if you're budget - conscious. Otherwise try one of the combination platters. Arrive early to beat the dinner crowd.

    Chicken wings are so good. I could eat them every week for years. Hot, flavored, good size, juicy etc. This is how chicken wings should be done.

    Get here before heavy dinner rush. Great Blackened grilled chicken salad. Beer is cold. Good spot right after and outside convention center for quick food.

    This place is a little touristy but the food saved it. I enjoy a delicious bowl of Zydeco Gumbo rich in flavor and spiced just right.

    Dinner and dancing. A fun change of pace from the craziness of Bourbon Street. Food good; mixed drinks not too strong, however, even with extra shot...Go with beer or wine :(

    Skip the shrimp gumbo. It's incredibly fishy. If you like spicy, go for the Zydeco gumbo. If not, shrimp etouffe and the red beans and rice are safe bets and both are hearty and delish. MmmmmMmmmmmmm.

    Excellent food and service. Jambalaya was amazing. As was the étouffée. Would recommend whole heartedly.

    Get the Zydeco Gumbo, very good. Also the Zydeco bread was interesting if you want to venture out for something different. Love the atmosphere.

    The food is great! The service-Not so much! Would have liked to receive the appetizers BEFORE the main course rather than with it, and the Female crabcakes are much smaller than the male crabcakes.

    I loved the seafood gumbo and the bread pudding. The music was a little on the loud side in case you want to talk.

    Cajun sampler appetizer! $50.00 split between myself and 2 other people as our meal and it was worth every penny!!

    You must have the sea food pasta. It is fantastic. Great service. Charming environment. Will go there again before I leave. The challenge will be to get something besides the aforementioned pasta

    Fantastic! Whateever you order, get a side of cole slaw. Pretty close to the best I've ever had, maybe THE best.

    Solid muffalatta sandwich and pecan beer. Come for dinner for the live music - the stage is near the back of the restaurant.

    Awesome food, great atmosphere. Had the blackened fish of day (Mahi mahi) was cooked perfectly and delicious.

    Red beans and rice were the best. Followed by the gumbo then the crawfish étouffée last. Also the bowls are huge and the cups are tiny.

    Great place if you want to experience Cajun atmosphere with live music. We felt music was a bit loud though. Food was good.

    Cajun ribs were pretty good. Don't get the Cajun seafood platter...there wasn't anything Cajun about it. Great live music on Friday night

    Oreo dirt is probably the best dessert here. Don't judge. Just try it. You won't regret it.

    Red beans n rice, it was good but not great. The staff were all friendly and there's live music, bit touristy.

    This is a great place, especially if you are in New Orleans for a convention or exhibition. At night there is creole / xydeco music and dancing. I highly recommend their spicy sausage po boys! Read more

    Keep eating so you don't get asked to dance, unless you can keep up with the energetic little old man!

    Mediocre food but good atmosphere and selection for large groups looking for local cuisine. Overpriced but you can get a good muffuletta, cole slaw and Boudain here. Get your fix at Acme first.

    Not a lot of spice or kick so if that's what you looking for ask for it. Good service though and love the onion rings

    Crawfish etoufee was very good...heavy dish so suggest small. Overall seems to be more of a “tourist trap” but do have live music which is nice.
