"Great Shrimp and Grits and peach bread pudding."

Vey nicely appointed establishment with awesome food! We made a reservation at 8:00pm and was seated on time. The waitress was very friendly and down to earth, bringing us food that was to die for. The BBQ shrimp appetizer was unbelievably good, so good we took the broth home! You will not be dissapointed!

I have been here many times. I raved about this place and took a guest with me on 8/15/2015 for an 8:15pm reservation. We were excited, especially since we had a Groupon deal. Let's just say that there was nothing Cajun Queenly about the food we were served. I had the all three etouffee and he had the shrimp and grits. The etouffee had absolutely ZERO spices to it. It was very bland. Everything in the dish was underwhelming. The shrimp on his shrimp and grits were overcooked. The grits were tasteless. When our waiter asked was everything okay, we replied that it was not very good. His reply was to simply state that there were two cooks and the one on staff that night wasn't really great with seasoning the food. Our plates weren't picked up in a timely manner and our refills weren't filled regularly. The food and the service was underwhelming at best. I am not pleased at all. My guest was not pleased as well. A very bad impression was set for his first time there. The only good thing about the evening here was the complimentary valet parking. I can see why it was pretty much empty on a Saturday evening if this is the type of food & service that is being given. Not happy.

Great food, awful customer service. Sat by the bar and after almost 10 minutes of no one acknowledging me neither the bartender which looked at me a couple times nor the staff that walked pass me I had to go downstairs and ask for a table. Food was great as always but then asked the waiter to bring me my check since I was in a hurry to get back to work. Waited almost 10 minutes then he said the check will be right out when he then turned around and proceeded to take another tables order who had a party of 7. The other waitress on the floor had already cleared 3 tables that got there after me. The waiter returned with the bill and instead of running my card went to another table to take their order. I was fed up and went to the manager which he never apologized and instead made excuses on to-go orders taking a long time and backing the kitchen up. I have been to Cajun Queen a few times but this was my last. When a manager never apologizes and instead says "let's get you checked out of here" is when I take my business elsewhere.

Came to charlotte for C.I.A.A. This was one of our best meals while in charlotte. We pretty much ordered the entire meal and shared it all family style... It was pretty dope. Cant wait to come back

The atmosphere is great and the band was wonderful. As for the food, the fried green tomatoes were phenomenal while the shrimp n grits were bland.... The service we recieved deserves no more than 2 stars. The hostess during our visit tonight was rude. And our server Melissa started off well but after we got our food she never came to check on us but she made sure to check on the table beside us twice. I find that to be very rude. The others servers and wait staff were not welcoming. I work as a server at a far less fancy restaurant and our service is way better. It felt as though we were not wanted. Therefore I will probably not visit again.... I wish we had read these reviews before we decided to visit because every issue we had was clearly stated here. After the amount of "bad service" reviews they have you'd think they would rehire staff and stress that they deliver better service. This makes me think that the management is just as slack as the service.

Our waitress (Melissa) was really nice with a great attitude, but towards the end she didn't check on us and took forever to bring our checks. My meal (The Diane) was delicious! My seafood gumbo could have had a little more seasoning but I was left satisfied. The only problem was when I asked one of the male waiters what time does the kitchen close he lied and told me it was already closed. When they had 45 more minutes before the restaurant closed smh I'm not too sure if I would try this place again.

This place is great. My food may have been a touch salty and spicy, but I would much rather have slightly over seasoned than bland. It was great! Crawfish Dianne and Chicken Dianne are fantastic. Great fried green tomatoes and pretty good bread. Plus the location is awesome too and staff was very friendly. Highly recommend this to anyone. They give HUGE portions so you may be able to share!

Had dinner on 4-4-15 with three other people, had reservations, came early, but was seated right away. Fried pickle started the evening and was very good. We tried the Diane entree with chicken and was good, sauce a little watery. Good portions. Etouffee with crawfish,chicken,shrimp was ok, but nothing great. Roux ( sauce) was bland, small sausage was added, but crawfish was to small to taste, chicken was soft, tender, shrimp was on the hard side due to size (small at best). Overall, service was very good (Brandon). Having eaten in New Orleans you cant compare this to that, but its not New Orleans. Would go again. Plan on spending at least 25.00 per person ( without booze).
