This is our second time visiting this restaurant and will now become a must visit EVERY time we visit SLC. Their jambalaya and gumbo are the absolute BEST this far west of Louisiana! Take my advice and add the crawfish to both!

Extensive beer selection, decent wine (this is a better lover's place), and signature cocktails. The food is as advertised (Cajun) and very good. Efficient wait staff and fast service.

Stopped here after flying back home from Ft. Worth. We were lucky enough to beat the lunch crowd and received our food and drinks very fast. Food was very good. Highly recommend the bread pudding.

The food was excellent. I do not drink, but my friends enjoyed the Chimay, once they got over the $30 sticker shock.
