First time back to Prudhomme's
First time back to Prudhomme's in several years (a busy schedule keeps me away!) but the food and service was as good as I remember it and I look forward to returning in the not too distant future! Cajun Whoopie Pies and Swampii can't be beat!

Great place, incorrect cancellation
Prudomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen was the perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday. He was thrilled with the choice, loved the food and the beer selection. the only "glitch" if you want to call it that, was that when we arrived, we were told that another party with the same last name had called to cancel their Open Table reservation and gave the time I had booked instead of theirs. It worked out in the end, but were told this kind of thing had happened twice in 2 weeks.

a bit of New Orleans in Columbia, P
A great place to go to taste some fine Cajun cooking. I recommend their Shrimp Sunny - a combination of blackened catfish, crabmeat and topped with crawfish etouffee and served with some blackened shrimp. Also, their homemade deserts are unbelievable if you still have room for them after the sumptuous meals. Reservations are a must and be patient as the place is busy on the weekends and the wait staff is overwhelmed.

We really enjoyed the music during dinner. Food portions are impressive. Menu is extensive. We wer glad we made reservations through Open Table or we wouldn't have gotten a table. It was packed on Friday night.

We had an awesome experience.
We had an awesome experience. Food was great - excellent selection of food and prices. Waitress and owner was awesome both were very warm and friendly to us.

While not the very best I have ever had, the catfish, both fried and blackened versions, were very good. Huge and delicious hushpuppies! Large entree portions. Good selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles.

Finally! Cajun cuisine!
New Orleans has THE BEST food in the world and it nice to have a little slice of that in Central PA. The sweet potato straws, clam strips and hushpuppies are OUTSTANDING. We have also had the ettouffe, catfish, gumbo, and bread pudding.....all wonderful.

Very good, just can't afford
Very good, just can't afford it as often as we would like. Very quiet and relaxing dining. Wait staff was very helpful. Wish all the appetizers were on the menu. Almost didn't order one because we didn't know you offered it.

OpenTable messed up the reservation
I made reservations through OpenTable for 7:PM on a Saturday night. Even got an email confirmation for 7:PM. It got transmitted to the restaurant as 6:30. We lost our table because we were late. When I explained the situation, the restaurant was gracious enough to accommodate us despite the very busy Saturday night traffic.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone in my party of 6 loved all the food. The beer special was great and the prices of the regular beer were very good, too. The staff and owners were very friendly. We are all anxious to go back!!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't wait to go back.
Went back for a 2nd dinner and was happier than the first time. That says a lot because I was pleased very much so with my first meal. The stuffed catfish special was out of the world YUMMY and can't wait for more.

This is my favorite restautant to bring friends for their birthdays. Excellent food, great menu and unique atmosphere.
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our third visit to Prudhomme's and we have never been disappointed with the quality or the quantity of food served, Sharon makes your dining at the restaurant a true pleasure. We will be going back soon.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll Be Back.....
Loved the food, even though two of three diners do not like "hot/spicy" food. Waitress was attentive, knew the menu choices well, when we asked for suggestions. Our choices were Swampi, (similar to Jambalaya); the steamed crab legs and blackened shrimp special; and Chicken and Shrimp N'Awlins. All choices were great! We topped off the meals with three homemade dessert choices. A great meal with friends, and a friendly, comfortable place. All three of us will definitely be back.
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent. I was in New Orleans a few years ago and fell in love with jambalya and gumbo and I was relegated to get pre-made cajun food from the grocery store in central PA. From the authentic cajun food, to the old tiffany lamps over the tables, to the owner with his authentic bayou draw, I would recommend Prudhomme's to anyone. It was also very appreciated when the waitress asked if we had any coupons. We did not. So she recommended that we check in on Facebook and that would allow her to give us 10% off the check. Any little bit helps.

We have been waiting to try this place, and it was well worth the wait. Food was great and service was awesome. Everybody in the restaurant was so nice and friendly. I would recommend this place to anybody. I give it a THUMBS UP!

A Great Find!
I have best friends who live on the gulf coast about an hour from New Orleans and I fell in love with cajun/southern cuisine while visiting many times. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was here in Columbia. My husband and I wanted to eat at restaurant that was a little different than where we would usually go, and we were out for our anniversary. The service was quick and the food was hot and good. I would've tried the bread pudding for dessert but I was too full! We'll definately go back again. It is a bit small inside, so if you have small kids, the noise level could be annoying to others b/c of the proximity to other patrons, but its probably not a place we'd take our young son anyways.

I love Cajun food and have been wanting to go for a long time. My son doesn't much care for Cajun but knew I wanted to go so he went and found a breaded haddock and fries that worked fine for him. I had the Bayou platter and loved it. What really blew us away were the hushpuppies! YUM!!! The teas are fine (we don't drink) but stay away from the fountain sodas... they are terrible. The live music was interesting, not something I'd want every day but passable and not annoying. Looking forward to going for lunch some time.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was very pleased with the quality of the food, Stepmom was overwhelmed with the amount of food ended up taking home some of it. Catfish was very good, really enjoyed the rice and black beans, my Dad actually ate his whole dinner which is unlike him. Ambiance was very pleasing, no need to rush, very laid back. Will return in the future.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. All Cajun dishes highly recommended. Some at our table thought the étouffée too spicy. Disappointed that they stopped serving boiled crawfish due to lack of customer demand. Wish they would start again.

Worth Goin Out of Your Way
Prudhomme's is a destination. The food is worth going out of your way to eat. We brought some home for the next night. All season delights and comfortable surroundings.

I have been looking at ads for Prudhome's for a while and finally had the opportunity to travel out to Columbia for a try. The three of us were in for a unique treat. The menu had a nice choice of Cajun fare, as wellas selections that would appeal to anyone else in the party. It is a smaller establishment and I felt lucky to get reservations through Open Table on a Friday night with only one and a half hour prior to our dining time. It was, as expected, very busy. There was a gent with a karoke set-up providing vocals for some oldies, and the house was joining in. The dress code was given as business casual, and I think we were overdressed compared to the other folks there. There were plenty of shorts and T-shirts around, and very relaxed.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
we have been to prudhomme's on a few occasions and have always had exceptional food and a great experience....the staff is friendly and the owners make you feel like family...I will continue to suggest to friends that they need to add this establishment to their "must do" list....
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took our family of 7 and had wonderful service! We ordered 5 different sandwiches to divide up. Everything was delicious. I especially enjoyed the crab melt and the fried tomato sandwich. You don't always get friendly service when you take 5 children out, but our waitress was very helpful. She made great recommendations and a few substitutions; all with a smile. We went with a Double Take Deal, too. We will be back!

delicious menu & specials
We usually order off the menu but tried the specials on our visit. They were so good. We enjoyed the music as well. Love love love this place. The owners are so friendly and the staff were more than efficient.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable lunch here with our daughter and 4 of her gal-pals from a nearby college on a Sunday afternoon. We ordered crab dip and hush puppies appetizers, Po-Boys, Twister Shifter sandwiches (all delicious and enormous) and an odd new entree: Buffalo Chicken Bowl which "works", however I wish the mashed potatoes had less of a "boxed" taste and consistency to them. Service by Natalie was friendly and unhurried.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was on line looking for a band we had seen previously and enjoyed (Jazz Me). Service was very good food as was food. Owners were very involved with running with all aspects of the restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed evening and will return. Hopefully can combine dinner with same band.
