Excellent! I had the seafood gumbo and it tasted like homemade. I am very particular about gumbo because many restaurants don't make it well. I was pleasantly surprised with the great taste.

Soileau's was recommended by an antique merchant (in Washington, LA.) The gumbo and fried shrimp were great. The shrimp creole so-so. Service was friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a return visit.

I wasn't going to go in because I was alone, but I forced myself. I'm SO glad I did. My waitress was attentive and so helpful. I had the crawfish etoufee and I can honestly say I've never had better. If I lived around this place, I'd make it a regular place to eat. Best EVER!!!

Nice restaurant in this town. Two generation family owned. Classic Louisiana seafood. Attractive building with several rooms for dining, I had the stuffed shrimp and my husband had stuffed crab. Both were good and real stuffing of crab (not mixed with a lot of bread.

I had "shrimp three ways" and my husband had "crawfish three ways". Both were delicious and very reasonable priced. The portions were huge. My shrimp dinner had gumbo, creole and fried. My husbands crawfish meal had fried, bisque and etouffee.

The food is always consistent. I love the tarter sauce and cheeseburger po boys! The decor is lack luster though and could use updating. It s also very dark! Food is always good though

The highlight of living in Opelousas, Soileau has never disappointed me, and I've eaten there at least twenty times. From their Super Seafood Platter, to Lobster, to a Hamburger, food is always served hot and plenty of it! Eat in or take out, I love the dining experience of Soileau's.
