My husband and I had the blacken chicken and rice, crawfish etouffee, cajun shrimp, red beans and rice and garlic mash potatoes. Everything was great and I love the kick of the chicken and crawfish dishes.

Howe's Bayou is a wonderful, small little restaurant serving Cajun dishes. Great food, wonderful, friendly staff. I took my wife and she went back the next day with her niece. We took our daughter from New York and she hasn't stopped talking about it.
