In St. Joseph on two different occasions have the chance to eat here. I will say the food and the service are excellent but in my opinion it was just a little pricey.

Daughter's choice to celebrate her birthday. No one was disappointed. Friendly, clean, great service and food was exceptional. Been a while since last visit, but nothing changed. Just a nice place.

Food at Boudreaux's is good. I'd give it five stars if it was a little less expensive. There isn't much in the way of ethnic food in St. Joseph, so if you are looking for something a little different, this is a great place to visit!

For starters, the place is very nice. The service is excellent. But the jambalaya, red beans and rice & blackened catfish are delicious! Although they have a full bar, we enjoyed hurricane cocktails. Everything was yummy. We will definitely return.

Choose from salmon, mahi-mahi, crawfish, shrimp, jambalaya, gumbo, snapper and of course alligator, plus lots more. It can get a bit noisy but the atmosphere is fun and... More

This is a very nice restaurant with delicious food. I had seafood courtbouillon & my husband had stuffed shrimp. Everything was delicious! The atmosphere was very comfortable & friendly & our waitress was very attentive & answered all our questions. We'll definitely go back here if we're ever in the area.

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

Really good and I recommend. Seafood courtboullion is my favorite. I have several friends who would drink the sauce on the chicken fried chicken and eat it every week. Some nice drink specials at dinner. Service has always been good.
