Seems to be good representative of local food. But a bit pricey, and also maybe the local food just likes a lot of rich sauces, carbs, and fat. The stuffed mushrooms were great, but I made the mistake of ordering an entree swimming in the same rich white gravy. The server was exceptionally solicitous and polite.

This place has great atmosphere. You really feel like you're in an original Cajun cabin. The food is decent, but doesn't really stand out above some of the other restaurants in the area. Take that with a grain of salt because I'm a local, and it takes a lot to impress me. If you're passing through the area, and you... More

Stopped here on drive through the South. Very popular local restaurant, a little way out of the main centre of town. Set up in an open plan restaurant with live music at night. Friendly service and flavourful food... the gumbo was a standout!

Long gone is the decent menu. And pretty much long gone is the very decent food they had. If you want a novelty...I guess that's what it is...so sad.

This was our first visit. I had been reluctant to go because I had an image in my mind that this was more like a bar atmosphere. I was incorrect. It does have a full size bar, but it is in a separate room from regular dining guests. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. The portion sizes... More

We stopped here on our way to North Louisiana. The parking lot was full but there was plenty of room inside so don't let that fool you. They had shaded dog kennels that you can use if you are traveling with them which we thought was pretty cool. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. It was... More

Prejean's is the perfect place to get a Cajun bite of almost anything from gator bites to boiled crawfish (when in season) and just about anything else Cajun. Definitely a family friendly establishment which has been in Lafayette (always busy) for as long as I can remember. Always a good meal when you visit here.
