This place was really good. Very authentic Cajun food. We started with stuffed mushrooms, which was a great starter for the rest of the meal. My wife ordered the Pescado Con Queso-white fish smothered in a cream and cheese based sauce with onions, bell peppers and crawfish. I had the stuffed shrimp and Cajun Mac-n-cheese. Both meals were fantastic. Staff... More

Service is fantastic. Literally as soon as your tea glass gets empty the waitress shows up out of no where and fills you back up. The food is bon-I-fide Cajun cooking. I have eaten as far south as Lafayette and Boudreaux is comparable to the best. I highly recommend.

I highly recommend this place for dinner. The food is authentic and amazing. Great vibe and ambiance. I ordered the Gumbo and the Pastalaya. Both were delicious.

Grabbed a late bite here during a stopover in St. Joe. We didn't eat any of the Cajun dishes - were hungry for a burger and fries, but our dinner was delicious and the service wonderful. Good selection of area beers and an amazing bar! Nice corner location downtown and plenty of free parking nearby.

Had the crawfish etouffee and it was amazing. Beer was cold and great prices for craft beers. Can't wait to go back and try the jambalaya!

Overall I enjoyed my meal, but wish it would have had more spice. Maybe they should do it like a Thai restaurant where you can indicate how spicy you like things. From 1 to 10 on spice, my etouffee was a 1. It was however packed full of crawfish. The menu selection was great. Lots of options. For seafood the... More
