Louisiana Lagniappe has delicious fish dishes and an exemplary staff. An award winning favorite of locals for years, we recommend it highly. We've enjoyed their cuisine at a table for two or many more for family celebrations. Enjoy this fine restaurant.

Rather small restaurant so arrive when they open or wait until 7:30-8:00. Always an early packed house. Consistently Excellent food.

The food is very authentic south Louisiana seafood, with the waitstaff very attentive. The crowds can be large at times, but the food is worth the wait.

This place has the best food on a consistent basis. Never had an OK meal here. Always a GREAT meal. Very busy on weekends and they don't take reservations, so plan on having a drink at the bar before hand.

There is a semiprivate room that holds a small number of people. I'm not sure how many people. You will need to phone the restaurant and ask.
