Cajun dining in a restored house with 1st-floor & rooftop terraces plus a bar with live jazz.- Google
"While the crawfish etouffee isn't like the traditional dish, it's awesome."
"Great Shrimp and Grits and peach bread pudding."

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 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.

This place is pretty good. Cajun food is my favorite, so I'm a pretty harsh critic when it comes down to it. I started off with a BBQ shrimp appetizer, which had a great flavor, but the shrimp was a bit overcooked. I also got a cup of gumbo, which I was very unimpressed with. Something was off with the flavor. Maybe I caught a bad batch of it, but I won't be ordering that again. For my dinner I had the etouffee trio with crawfish, chicken, and shrimp. The chicken was amazing. Perhaps the best I have ever had. It was very tender and the flavor was awesome. The shrimp and crawfish were pretty darn good too. I also tried some of the blackened catfish, which was cooked perfectly, but the seasoning on it was nothing special. Luckily they had two of my favorite beers to wash it down with, Abita Golden and Purple Haze. I like how the restaurant is laid out. It has a nice ambiance to it, and looks great both inside and out. The prices are a little expensive, but you do get a good amount of food, so I would say overall it's worth it. If I had the option, I would have given it a 4.5 / 5 rating, but they definitely have some things to improve upon if they want to reach 5/5.

Food was really good. Service was good on the inside but the valet outside was awkward. Guy didn't seem to know what he was doing and it wasn't busy. Would return but only with the Groupon that us advertised a lot. It's a bit on the pricey side.

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.

Parking was a pain. Wait staff were rude and inattentive. Food was OVER priced and not that great. Disapointing.

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.
