Good fresh seafood & stakes, frequented by locals & tourist alike. Salads are large and varied, fried shrimp is a favorite.

The wife and I dine out regularly and when we do, Prejean's is on our preferred list of places for dinner. Prejean's provides you with great Cajun style food along with a pleasant dinning experience. So the next time you're in the Lafayette and you're looking for a good place for you and your family to enjoy dinner, try Prejean's.

Came here fo dinner to experience Cajun food and music. Very little atmosphere and not busy. I ordered crawfish Ettouffee which took some time to arrive. It was tasty but cold. Should have complained but I didn't. What would they do? Just stick in the Microwave. The band was average. All in all rather dissapointing.

Every time I get a visitor from out of town and especially out of the country, this is restaurant is on my list on their tour. Good value and great authentic cajun experience. The locals love it. Always packed. Reasonably priced. You can have a full 3 course meal for about US$25.

We order from Prejeans' at least once a month. We love their food and have never been disappointed. The servers are very friendly and can answer any questions. If you are in the area I highly recommend eating here.

I had heard great things about this restaurant..so we decided to give it a try..food was horrible, i ordered seafood nachos, they taste like they were prepared in microwave. Husband ordered fried alligator and they were very unsatisfying im giving 2 stars just for location, music, and atmosphere

I had the worst crawfish etouffee in my life. Even the cup of gumbo was not good, scorched. I am done with Prejean's. I do not recommend this place.
