Boudreaux's offers very tasty authentic Cajun and American food in a cool historic building in downtown St. Joe. I was there for lunch and had the seafood jambalaya. GREAT with some tabasco sprinkled in. I also sampled some onion rings which were excellent as well. I was on the clock so I couldn't enjoy one of the tall beers I... More

My favorite dish is the crawfish etouffee and I love their gator bites. Boudreaux's offers a really great atmosphere and stellar service.

Great food and great atmosphere to enjoy Louisiana Cajun recipes. The chicken and sausage Etouffee was excellent. The downfall was the servings were so large that you needed a "to go" box.

The chicken and sausage jambalaya is outstanding. Be sure to start with a cup of red beans and rice. If you have a salad go for the sweet onion house dressing.

This is a great restaurant downtown across the street from the courthouse. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is very good. They have a large selection of Cajun food, seafood, and steaks. The food is very tasty.

Excellent food, atmosphere, drinks and service. A must for everyone ! Parking is a little difficult but defiantly worth it. I tried Talipia with shrimp and dirty Cajun mashed potatos, it was so good , I win I' d ordered one to go to have back at the hotel. I highly recommend this place !

Thank Kathyt892
