    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/18/2012
    Great food, but menu is limited, however each dish on the menu was amazing. Only one chicken dish, one beef (steak) and a few fish dishes. We went with our two teenage boys and they loved every bite. At first I thought I would not be able to find something each one would like especially since I have very simple eater. The steak was perfect for him and it was prepared just has he liked it. They also bring fried hushpuppies to the table before your meal; they were so good it was hard not full up on them even before the main course arrived. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Valentines Day was a difficult day for me trying to find the ferfect place for my new wife and I. Lagniappe was a last resort that should have been our first choice. The service was probably the best service you will ever receive, very personable and attentive and funny. The food was great, im not big on the food they served but it was good, and at the end they gave us a plate of GIANT chocolate covered strawberries. AMAZING touch. We where sat at what they called the bests eat in the house, in front of a window overlooking stowe, YUP! The table was a tad small and hazardous to sit at(see for yourself) not that big of a deal. Thanks again!!

    Good for small intimate groups. This place is a real gem. Frank (owner) has done a fine job with the menu and the Chef is out of this world. Grilled Oysters and hush puppies were to die for. We will definitely go back, lots! Thank you for the experience! J&J

    This was a very nice Inn off the beaten track but not a long drive from it. The food was delicios and the helpings were, big! When I am skiing I like to eat hearty meals and this place did the trick,and then some. I say and then some because the name of the restaurant means, well, its like the 13 bagel in a bakers dozen! They are hands on, the owner comes over to every table. They care!

    Dined on 1/6/2012
    We went on a quiet night. Food was ok. Service was pleasant. My companiera liked her catfish. I think I ordered something with shrimp. It was not particularly memorable, though I liked the colorful heavy plates. I recall there were attempts at Cajun authenticity, yet there was no crystal hot sauce next to the bottle of tabasco. Even though I'm not from La, on a website called thekitchn dot com, my grumbing was explained: "The people of Louisiana have strong allegiance to one or the other, and a missing bottle of favorite hot sauce can be cause for much grumbling."

    My husband and I came across this restaurant while approaching our final destination. Being from New Orleans we had to try it. We made reservations for dinner for the next night and we're glad we did. While it's not what I would consider 'real' cajun/creole cooking, it was very good. We both ordered the gumbo and while it was not the right color and the rice was piled on top of the gumbo, it was delicious. Probably some of the best gumbo I've ever had. I got the 'shrimp boil' and the shrimp were done perfectly. My hsuband got the jambalaya and he had to try to side order of red beans and rice. Well, the jambalaya was saucy and the red beans where just red beans mixed into rice (no sauce) he said both were good.

    We treated our guests to a dinner out at Lagniappe the night after Thanksgiving and it was really yummy. If you like Cajun, you'll like the food here. Prices were reasonable, especially since the portions were pretty big. Our server was very friendly. The Inn is a little dated, but quite charming. This is my second time here in a couple of months, and I definitely recommend it for dinner.

    Dined on 10/20/2011
    I didn't care for the gumbeaux, seasoning- very overpowering, either old bay or stuffing seasoning. Others liked the shrimp jambalaya and the shrimp etoufee. The deserts, bannanas foster,arrived cold, it was supposed to be prepared tableside, but chef was too busy. The bread pudding ,with bourbon was tasty, but the ice cream and whipped cream was soupy.The waitress was friendly and explained the menu, but later on the place was crowded and there were only two servers, so I noticed people waiting a long time for their food. I dont think I will be going back.

The Chicken/Sausage Gumbo was delicious, with a mild bite. The Shrimp Jambalaya was loaded with shrimp and delicious. WOuld highly recommend for anyone that enjoys Creole style cooking!

    Food was great! Reminded my husband of the food he loved during his time in New Orleans. Entrees are big enough to share w/ leftovers if you have a starter or two. BBQ shrimp app and mashed sweet potatoe side are awesome. Only thing we noticed are that the red beans and rice were not in the traditional style.

    Charming old inn ambience. New Orleans theme menu offered a number on interesting alternatives. Quality of food was excellent, from appetizer through finish. Wonderful balance of seasonings and flavors. Wine - and Oregonian Pinot Gris - was excellent, and quite affordable.(If you like dark chocolate, the Lava Cake is a “must try”.) Service was mainly prompt and always congenial. One of our most pleasurable overall dining experiences in Vermont, and we live here!

    I wanted to find a restaurant that served food we wouldn't normally find in the UK. Lagniappe with it's cajun/creole themed cuisine fitted the bill perfectly. The venue was ideal for us at the edge of the Trapp Lodge estate where we were staying. Wonderful views all around you. The dining room was very eclectic and, in my opinion, a warm and romantic setting. Anyway, what can I say about the food, it was historic. There were so many strong and wonderful flavours coming through the food. I had the jambalya and my good friend has etoufée. On top of this both the chef and all the staff were very approachable, and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to eat cajun food in the Vermont area.

Very good bread pudding. Enjoyed the Cajun martini. Well-chosen and well-priced wine list. Gracious service, even though understaffed. Authentically Cajun. We'll be back.

    I had gone onto Restaurant.com and gotten a $50 gift certificate for $25 and booked my reservation right after that. I emailed the owner, Frank, and requested some special touches for our 14th anniversary dinner. Most notably, was a Sazerac cocktail that my husband had raved about on a recent trip to Whistler, BC and no where in our surrounding area had even heard of it. This was the hit of the night! Our waitress, Michelle, was extremely friendly and joked with our kids. The food was fantastic - the complimentary hush puppies were delicious! Highly recommend Lagniappe to all who visit Stowe, VT!
