I took my wife here for a Christmas time date and it certainly did not disappoint. We both started off with the gumbo along with the bread that was provided free with our meal. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I had the...More

I cannot rave about this place more. Best Southern food I had during my entire trip to Charlotte. Highly recommend this place, especially if you like spicy food. The jazz room upstairs is a must!

The gumbo is great! If you don't know what to get, just get a bowl of gumbo. It's very fulfilling. This is a good restaurant for children as well. You can also us Groupon for this restaurant.

We have been to the Cajun Queen twice and really enjoyed ourselves. The BBQ Shrimp is amazing (save your bread to dip in the sauce!) as is everything marked blackened or spicy. The bread pudding and Oreo cheesecake were also very good. Upstairs, they have...More

I traveled to Charlotte frequently several years ago and frequented the Queen. It was a place I missed when I no longer traveled there. I returned this month and had to go back, it was as remembered, unremarkable decor, difficult parking, over friendly service but...More
