We had a wonderful time all our food was excellent. Seafood platter, Gumbo, beef tips and butterfly shrimp, Boudain balls and corn bread. They loved it. It was all very good. My sisters from Australia enjoyed their first trip in the United States of America. Thank you to the ladies who helped them feel welcomed.

I have been at Leonard's, starting in 2002, and I must say I've never had a bad meal.The po-boys are always first-rate, the seafood is quality, and the prices are right. You can't go wrong here!

I went there on Friday for a late lunch with a friend. He got the fried pork chop with red beans and rice. He couldn't eat it all. I had a meatball po-boy combo. The sauce didn't seem as good as in the past. Next time I will get a plate lunch with smothered steak and rice and gravy which... More

I had a shrimp and crab po boy with fries and a brownie total was 15.00. I just can't say enough about how good the seafood is here. This is a nice small restaurant, friendly staff, food is just so good. I will definitely eat here again if I am in Lake Charles again.

I ordered this through the Waitr App and was pleasantly surprised. The smothered steak was fantastic and the rice was perfectly sticky. The real star of the show was the Boudin Balls. To say they were HUGE is an understatement and they were the perfect balance of savory and spicy! It was a perfectly cooked, home-style meal for a weary... More

Wonderful food. The place is a few minutes off the Interstate, but very easy to find. And well worth it. My food nazi boyfriend claims that the Big Easy Poorboy was in the top two of the best poor boys ever! Roast beef, ham and turkey with cheese, lettuce, tomato and gravy on a delicious French bun. I had the... More

The food here was average, and the place needs to be cleaned up. Tables were not cleaned as soon as guests left. The food was not remarkable
