This is a must stop if you're traveling near Lafayette! Super cool Louisiana atmosphere and delicious, high-quality food. We tried the gumbo, the crawfish bisque, the Carencro shrimp, and the crawfish platter. I grew up in Baton Rouge and my husband is a chef that used to work in New Orleans, so we know good Louisiana food, and this is... More

After a recommendation we tried Prejeans for dinner. We arrived early and had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. It was Mardi Gras weekend so they were extra busy. Food was great as was service from Jennifer. I tried gator and loved it. Hubby had fried green tomatoes outstanding. Large portions for starters. Blackened catfish étouffée was excellent.... More

The food is traditional Cajun fare. All options are delicious. I especially enjoyed the eggplant pirogue. They have live Cajun music at night.

For years, we used Prejean's as a regular haunt when we visited Lafayette. After moving here, it became a must night out when company comes to town. Plenty of tables so seating is usually available, although the overflow back room limits the atmosphere. The duck is worth the trip, but so are the other staples: red beans, etoufee and gumbo....

We went at 6:30 and the band started playing at 7:00. Cajun singing so hard to understand but music was nice. Food was very good as was service. Cajun decorations throughout the restaurant. Waiter was very attentive and friendly. Most fish entries are Cajun focused...if you want straight grilled item.....make sure you ask. Steaks were good and a business partner... More

I always stop at Prejean's on my way to NO. This is a pretty big place conveniently off the main road easy to find. The decor is Bayou style, Cajun music every night and Sat & Sun lunch. The food (not all Cajun) is dependable for such a big operation. Good selection of gumbos, étouffée, alligator, crawfish, frog legs, boudin... More

I stop in here once a year when passing through Lafayette on I-10, and it never disappoints. Server was a delight and food was again excellent.
