Just finished my meal. Not impressed. Ice machine out of order. Had to wait too long for food. Can't read menu because it's so small above the counter. Unfriendly staff. My oyster and shrimp basket had 3 Shrimp and 3 oysters. Both way overcooked -...More

Pretty darn good for Cajun food in Montana. Decent price. They have another one in Missoula. This is much bigger than their first place.

We had lunch here and enjoyed the food very much. They know how to make a roux. We had gumbo and jambalaya and both were very good. Love their new site! Roomy.

Brought our neighbor's here after telling them how wonderful the food was at the Bozeman Zydecos. No room inside to order up at the register, or to squeeze by the next person in line to get your own drink. We sat at a table outside...More
