Louisiana Lagniappe has delicious fish dishes and an exemplary staff. An award winning favorite of locals for years, we recommend it highly. We've enjoyed their cuisine at a table for two or many more for family celebrations. Enjoy this fine restaurant.

My favorite dishes are the Fresh fish en Papillote and the Portabella mushroom salad. Both are divine!

Louisiana Lagniappe is a great restaurant. I've never been disappointed with anything I ordered there. They don't take reservations, so get there early or be prepared to wait!! Let me tell you though, the wait is worth it. Good Eats.
