Charming restaurant that literally makes you feel at home. Great ambiance. Feels like you're having dinner at a friends house. The seating was cozy and intimate. The food is delicious and flavorful. I ordered the blackened catfish and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My date had the shrimp diane, which he said was wonderful. We had the bread pudding for dessert. It was good. I never had bread pudding with peaches in it. It was unique. Our waiter was friendly and took good care of us. We had a great time at Cajun Queen and we can't wait to go back again soon. The only reason I'm rating them 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the parking situation. They only had a small parking area behind the restaurant, which was full. There was nowhere to park on the street behind or in front of the restaurant.

The food was good and spicy. I ordered the 1/2 Fried Oysters appetizer and Etouffee 3way and my date had the Crawfish Etoufee. I originally wanted to try to the New Orleans Platter but they were out of catfish, (yeah, I know a cajun restaurant without catfish smh...) I had bread pudding for dessert and it was GOOD! Seating was not the best, but overall a good experience.

The Cajun Queen is my favorite place to eat on special occasions. Sadly my experience on Valentines Day this year was less than stellar. I know it was a holiday and it was busy, but just the same I expected better, especially when I spent over a hundred dollars for two people. There were a lot of things that didn't really go well. For starters after ordering our dinners appeared BEFORE our salad orders. So that had to be sent back. The waiter did get us salads, and told us he would have the dinners re-made fresh. Quite honestly my dinner looked to be warmed over when it arrived the second time; not the waiter's fault, but not impressive. During the whole time the staff kept miss-delivering dinners and explaining it was because they had set out extra tables due to the holiday. Again, it showed a lack of preparation for the holiday. Aside from dinner I made a specific request to have a side of Craw fish Ettoufe` (apologize for the spelling) packaged to go. This is my favorite dish and I planned it for lunch the next day. When I unwrapped it at home it was 3/4 rice and very little of the actual craw fish and sauce. For half the price of an entree, I expected better. Finally, after asking for coffee and a desert menu, I was disappointed when the coffee appeared with my bill, not the desert menu. Overall, and understanding we were there on a holiday, I ended up very disappointed on this occasion. Understanding it was Valentine, it is still quite clear that the staff needs to refocus on the customer and the entire experience. Again, the Queen is my favorite establishment in Charlotte, but on this night, they missed the mark ... badly ...

Hands down, one of my favorite spots to eat. The wash day blues, shrimp etouffee, fried pickles and oreo cheesecake are delicious....consistently! On occasion, the service is a bit slow. Sometimes my husband and I will go on what we classify as an "off" night to avoid the crowds. Ironically these nights are the nights the service seems of be slow. It may be because the staff is shorter than on a weekend, but nonetheless I love this restaurant!

$$$ and low quality of the food in comparison to the price! It seems the service worked for a fast-food-restaurant before. They came too often and in a short amount of time and asked things, wanted to take away the salad ... A curry was more a kind of bouillon and the needed a long time to bring a spoon after we asked. In the area we sat they played music anbd after a family left (birthday party) they turned it off ... felt like we were not worth it to be there and have some nice Jazz. Nice place with a LOT MORE potencial!!!

As I walked through the door and was greeted by the hostess I could barely tell I was still in NC. I could hear the jazz music playing in the background and I felt like I had just stepped off the streets of Nawlin's into one of it's restaurants. I ordered the Creole with Chicken, Shrimp & Crawfish. That dish did not disappoint. If you're looking for a taste of New Orleans then definitely stop on in to the Cajun Queen.

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.
