Welcome to Cajun Cafe on the Bayou!


We are not your typical Cajun restaurant.  

We are as well-known for our location on Cross Bayou and our large selection of fine craft ales, as we are for our authentic Louisiana Cuisine.  

We do our best to keep our dining areas a pleasant and relaxing respite away from the hustle and bustle of today's modern world. 

We have no televisions, no loud music, and we ask our guests to kindly use their cell phones outside and away from dining areas.  We are non-smoking, both inside and out.  

Our focus is on good food, good beer, pleasant dinner conversation and clean air!




Credit Cards -- We accept Visa, MasterCard, AMEX & Discover

We serve Lunch and Dinner.  Attire is casual.  We take reservations for parties of 5 or more.  Walk-Ins Welcome. 

Hours of Operation:  Wednesday - Sunday, 11:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.  Closed Monday and Tuesday.  

(Hours are seasonal and subject to change.)

Event Schedule


10th Annual Fall Craft Beer Festival – Nov 7, 2015 


Serving freshly prepared, authentic Louisiana Cuisine & Fine Craft Ale, right on the bayou!  Since 1996!

Well who'd'a' thunk it?  


Despite every obstacle we’ve faced,

in our falling-down shack on the bayou, we’re still around to celebrate our

20th Anniversary in February. 

(Knock on wood,

because February is still 3 1/2 months away!)


Keeping our old doors open 20 years has taken a tremendous amount of hard work, sheer luck, and the love and support of our friends and customers.  


We’re going to spend the next few months reflecting on where we’ve been and where we hope to go.  Our overwhelming emotion as we take this journey is gratitude.  There are lots of ways to earn a living — we’ve know our share of heartache and devastation — but for the most part we have to acknowledge 

— this has been kind of fun!


Thank each and every one of you!
