If you don't like seafood, like me, it was just ok, but if you like seafood, it was very good. My husband and daughter enjoyed both of their dinners. My husband had the catfish and daughter had the shrimp poboy. I just had a chicken breast sandwich which was good also.

We stopped after our tour as was recommended by Captain Lou. The food was straightforward. We got red beans and rice with catfish. We had the shrimp and catfish platter and baby shrimp in a sauce that was like thousand island dressing. Nothing was sooo good but nothing was bad. Just plain and simple.

We stopped by for a quick lunch after an airboat ride in the bayou and this local place is a straightforward choice. Local NOLA/Cajun food at very reasonable price. If you like all sort of fried seafood and stuff, you'll be more than happy.

Close to New Orleans, but a world away. Not far from Jean Lafitte National Park, you can find this friendly neighborhood sea food establishment. The soft shell crab poboys and the fried oysters were fresh and prepared just right. Enjoy

Although there were other non-locals here and it seemed like the one lady doing all of the order-taking, serving, and ringing up bills maybe wasn't sure how to treat strangers like us, after a while we felt comfortable. We needed a gluten and dairy-free meal and she was able to come up with suggestions that created a very nice home-style... More

Just as the title says- meh. Local diner with local fare. Service isn't overly friendly. Food is well-priced and decent in flavor.

years ago, we lived in louisiana, just outside of new orleans. boutte's bayou restaurant was our regular friday night dinner. after we moved away, the friday night dining experience, including the drive there, became almost legendary in my mind. perhaps the memory was greater than the actual experience. we were visiting new orleans this weekend, and decided to take a...

Fed my fam of 3 for around $45, with "seafood" And let me tell you the open face roast beef was yumm-oooo I am not a big "bean" fan but the red beans and rice were scrumptious! Go there! Eat local! Keep the little man in business!
