The food is awesome and they have a good selection of local craft beer on tap. The Catfish Prejean is the meal in the photo.

Prejean's is a very cool place to take out of town visitors. The fool is wonderful and the atmosphere is very cajan. They have a giant aligator. It's stuffed of course ,but still very cool. Kids love it.

My family ate here about 5 years ago and we're impressed, so this time we stopped in with our extended family. The food is always superb but a bit pricey. Nonetheless I'm sure we'll eat here again when passing through the area.

I ordered the shrimp salad and the shrimp seemed like they came out of a can. My companions had better luck one got the seafood platter and another the shrimp dinner. Both cleaned their plates. Pretty sad about the shrimp salad.

Yes there is Live Cajun music here. Not sure what time it starts, since we ate there around 4:30. Probably the music starts later.
