This is a quaint little place with some delicious dishes. The staff was very informed and helped me decide on what to eat. I had the swamp daddy which was to die for. It was a large portion so I was able to take some home for leftovers. I would 100% recommend a visit here, especially if you like cajun cuisine.

Took some friends to Ragin Cajun last week. They had never been here before and I think it's safe to say that everyone left happy. BYOB so bring a selection. Warning: the Jambalaya is HOT! It even says in the menu that it cannot be spiced down. Restaurant has been consistently better than good for many years. Entertainment on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Finally had dinner here after passing it by so many times! Quaint little place with some bold flavors and large dishes. Everyone enjoyed their apps and dinner. Absolutely loved the alligator sausage and blackened tuna bites! Dinners all came out in large portions. My wife loved her meal (seafood jambalaya, as did others enjoy theirs. I had the steak and shrimp ettoufe. Great flavors and a large portion with rice and veggies. Yet, only a few shrimp...that were small...and, steak slices thin and over done. Perhaps a different cut of beef, or thicker slices being added just before serving may improve that. Otherwise, everything else was great.

Small atmosphere but wonderful selection of entrees. You can specify what level of heat to have included in your meal, so everyone can be accommodated - from none to blazing. I recommend the Swamp Daddy pasta.
