We ate here on our vacation to New Orleans. It was our first time having authentic Cajun & creole food. We loved that we had the opportunity to sample everything first. The food was delicious and the staff was helpful. The manager was kind and...made a point to come and talk to us about the food and surrounding area. Would highly recommend.More

Really good food, friendly staff, and wonderful Cajun atmosphere -- music, corrugated sheet metal, cypress wood, etc. Shared some tasty Boudin Balls (pork?) with a delicious Remoulade dipping sauce for appetizer. I ordered the Crawfish Étouffée, my wife had the Shrimp Stir Fry. Mine was...excellent, just like my dear MIL in New Orleans used to make and give me in a Mason jar to take home nearly every time we visited. My wife was not impressed with the stir fry, would probably not reorder. We also shared an order of Bignets -- fantastic. If you are looking for some authentic Cajun food, this is da place, fo sho.More

The worst food ever. Frozen shrimp would taste better. Do not eat there unless you want the worst food in town.

The three of us sat down and waited for our drinks for over 15 minutes. Should have known. We waited for at least 45 minutes before we got our meal. We all ordered different pastas. It was not the best. My husband orded the boudan...balls and they were way over cooked. We saw other customers leave who were there before us. Maybe this location was under staffed.More

One of the best food experiences I’ve ever had, the food was bursting with so much flavor, and so delicious. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a true taste of the culture of Louisiana. I will be going back and telling all my friends...and family. The wait staff was extremely friendly and vigilant. I absolutely loved this place. Would give 10 stars if it was an option! Great job!More

We chose this place because of the free samples, and were not disappointed. Our somewhat picky kids got to try new things, then order “safe” chicken Alfredo. The more adventurous adults could order with confidence. We also had beignets, which were delicious. Our waitress was...very friendly and attentive.More

Sample favorites free before ordering!! My grandkids think this is the coolest! I’m hooked on the Lobster Bisque and Debris sandwich and Fried Catfish! I’m sure whatever I’d order would be great! I just have to get the bisque and catfish!! I tasted the red...beans on sampler board..they were great! Cajun atmosphere is great!! They even serve breakfast!!!More

In town with a group of instructors and out for dinner. A number of restaurants would not seat us without reservations, but the Lost Cajun took good care of our party of four. We had a good selection of entrees to choose from. I tried...the Fried Catfish and was not disappointed. Four nicely fried fillets with hush puppies and coleslaw. I will be returningMore
