The shrimp and crab gumbo has the biggest shrimp I've ever seen!! It was so good! Ditto for the fried shrimp salad. There's ample seating, and the service is quick.

This place has some great food sometimes and next time, same dish, not so good. I am not sure what the issue is, unless they have a big turn over of cooking staff.
Wait staff is o.k. Atmosphere is awesome. Place has always been clean when we were there.
Live bands play on weekends. Bar is nice, but always packed when bands play. Parking in not so good. Street parking or small lot next to building. Located in a good area.
If they can just get the food the same every time, it would be a better place.
I had a steak poboy once and it was thin sliced Ribeye. Next time it was thin sliced fat.
Deserts are ALWAYS great!!!
Who ever decorated this place did a great job. That is the best job of decorating a southern Cajun place. Decorating is all about fishing and outdoors.

The first bad sign we noticed was that the restroom was dirty. Then we sat down to order food and asked if they could make a simple grilled chicken sandwich that they had on their lunch special menu, which was only available Monday-Friday. ;I understand that we were there on a Saturday, but a grilled chicken sandwich should not be that hard to make. The waitress said that we could not order it. So then we tried to order a baked potato with chicken topping. The chicken topping was listed on the menu for an extra $6. She told us we could not get that either because it was too close to the lunch special that wasn't available. WTF? We were willing to pay the extra $6 and the potato and chicken topping were both listed on the menu as regular everyday items. I still do not understand what is so hard about making a grilled chicken sandwich. Put the chicken on the grill and slap it on some bread with some lettuce and tomato. So then my husband went to the restroom again, and this time the toilet was clogged. He was so mad that he left the restaurant. I stayed because we were with a larger group. I ordered grilled snapper and it was chewy and tough to eat. I got gumbo as a side item and it was really salty. I could make better gumbo and grilled fish at home. The food was way overpriced for the quality. Then they charged my parents $100 too much for their meal. The money was already drafted out of the bank account before the mistake was realized and it will now take 3 days or so to get it back. It also took about 30 minutes for us to get our food. Granted, it was McNeese graduation day, but after all the other bad things that happened, it was just one more strike against them. The manager I spoke with did apologize and offer free dessert. She also made the chicken topped potato for us. However, by then it was too late. There are plenty of restaurants that will bend over backwards for their customers, and this is not one of them. Do not go here. Go to Pat's of Henderson's instead for quality food and service.

Visited or tried to visit Sha Sha's on Sunday and Tuesday evenings and this restaurant was shut on both occasions. OK I realise we may be 'out of season' but if they are going to shut why can't they have some sort of notice outside. there isn't even a timetable of opening times so newcomers or holidaymakers are just left totally in the dark. We had heard some great things about this restaurant and were so looking forward to our visit but unfortunately we were left with no other choice but to find other alternatives. I really don't want to give this reataurant only 1 mark but have no other choice. As for ratings for service, food, value, atmosphere, romance and special occasions.....well due to the fact we never managed to eat there then it's a big fat zero for all of them. Sorry Sha Sha's we really were looking forward to visiting you.
