  • Garnett reviewA definate must do! I would say more of a grandma in the kitchen throw it on the plate atmosphere with great local music and dancers to watch! If you want dessert... their bread pudding is absolutely the best (while a bit different than most) other desserts? Skip they're trucked in! Rustic Warehouse setting and fabulous service... Maybe Emeril could get a few pointers here!!! :)

  • jimrob reviewGood food and very generous portions.

  • WorldTraveler reviewCajun Warehouse dining. Really good cajun fare. Desserts are mouthwatering. Music starts late but worth the wait. The costs seem a little high.

  • ChefMozEvery time we travel South, we drive out of our way to visit Mulate's. The food is wonderfully Cajun. I love the Mushroom Smothered Hamburger Steak and my husband always has the spicy Duck. The live bands are awesome and there is a small dance floor that is always full.

  • Jason S.a little overpriced for what you get but nice location and tasty bites

    55555 by Jason S.


  • Doug BI really wanted to like this place, great open setup, live music. But the food was beyond bland. At over $70 for 2 beers, an app, and 2 bowls of gumbo it just isn't worth it.

  • Bruce TThe smoked oysters was great but do not go for the boudin.

    55555 by Bruce T


  • Andre SCajun Sampler

    55555 by Andre S

    55555 by Jim Bailey

    55555 by Thomas E


  • Luis EpMe pareció muy buen sitio, la comida rica y el mejor lugar para probar el cocodrilo (Alligator Grilled), en jueves cierran a las diez y prácticamente te corren, alguien vio un pequeño roedor, yo no.

    55555 by Alèxia S.

    55555 by Pam A

    55555 by Julie M.

    55555 by PattiB


  • Matt R.Go here with your mom if you just moved to town like 6 hours ago.

    33333 by Matt R.


  • Brian S.Not worth it at all. $22 for a barely mediocre shrimp po-boy and $7 for a cup of bland gumbo. Waste of money and time in a fantastic culinary city.

    22222 by Brian S.


  • Olivia S.The étouffée and gumbo are delicious. A must have no doubt.

    55555 by Olivia S.

    33333 by Nancy R.


  • Ed C.Food is way overpriced, and not very good. Our meal was cold when it came out. Very disappointing. I'll stick to my own gumbo from now on.

    22222 by Ed C.


  • BradBad food, over priced- highly fucking disappointed.... 2 times in a row things have turned out to be a high priced turd- Jesus!!!!!

  • AliCajun sampler appetizer! $50.00 split between myself and 2 other people as our meal and it was worth every penny!!

    55555 by Ali


  • Braeden W.Very expensive. So very filling. Yummy but I feel bad for my parents. Expensive and I couldn't finish half of my meal! Music is too loud I might mention. BUT yummy like I said. Idk if its worth it.

    55555 by Braeden W.


  • Amber G.The atmosphere was great and so was the fried alligator but staff and the rest of the food was severely lacking.

    33333 by Amber G.

  • Eric R.Grilled Alligator Pasta is awesome.

    55555 by Eric R.


  • Melvyn H.Red beans and rice were the best. Followed by the gumbo then the crawfish étouffée last. Also the bowls are huge and the cups are tiny.

    55555 by Melvyn H.

    55555 by Lexi L.


  • Katie C.The service from our waitress Stephanie was terrible, she never failed to be rude. Loved the food and music, but her offensive behavior was enough to ensure my friends and I will never return.

    22222 by Katie C.


  • Clare P.Great location, huge drinks but my muffaletta was greasy and if you don't like cheese its tough luck. They are premade and won't accomoadate your allergies. Super expensive for what it is.

    33333 by Clare P.

  • Steven P.Pretty pricey but very very delicious if you're in the mood for real Cajun cuisine

    55555 by Steven P.


  • Anna C.Skip the shrimp gumbo. It's incredibly fishy. If you like spicy, go for the Zydeco gumbo. If not, shrimp etouffe and the red beans and rice are safe bets and both are hearty and delish. MmmmmMmmmmmmm.

    55555 by Anna C.


  • Venson ETry the Zydeco Gumbo

    55555 by Venson E


  • Lovisa W.Try the Zydeco Gumbo. Nice & spicy & much better than seafood gumbo. Étouffée was also very good

    55555 by Chris W.


  • Jennifer L.The food is great! The service-Not so much! Would have liked to receive the appetizers BEFORE the main course rather than with it, and the Female crabcakes are much smaller than the male crabcakes.

    55555 by Lori B.
