It was pretty late so maybe that’s why it wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. My friend and I got there 30 mins before the kitchen closed, so the food was most likely rushed. The staff was very nice and helpful nonetheless. We even got an item taken off due to us not finishing it. It’s not a bad spot, just get there early.

My server was amazing and attentive! Food wasn’t my favorite, I hated their chicken wings but the gumbo did what I needed it to do. The music was awesome and I had a great time regardless. My seat was in a section where the server moved back and forth but luckily nobody bumped my chair. Super happy about that!

I usually love CajunSea. Tonight’s service was inattentive and kind of slow. The good thing is that the food was still super tasty and well seasoned. I’ll still return!

Great food, mediocre service. Waited 20 minutes for our server to take our orders. Waited another 20 minutes for drinks and appetizer, but overall the food was great.

To keep it simple... the food was “ok”.. but the service was terrible. That will keep me from going back or recommending to anyone. Very disappointing.

I've been to CajunSea several times for different occasions and I am never disappointed. The food is all that sea food should be; delicious, and I was thrilled that the waitress we had remembered me. Service is really good and the wait staff is always around if you need something extra. I'm sure I'll be going back again.
A very satisfied customer

The food was absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I ordered a few appetizers to share; the corn, crab cakes, lobster Mac & cheese, and the lobster roll. We also ordered the fried cat fish and fries for our 4 year old daughter who ate most of the dish by herself!

Found this restaurant when we were searching for a place that offered crab legs by the pound. For that purpose, this restaurant fit the bill. The crab was very good, as were the $1 happy hour oysters (blue point on the night we were there, but it varies depending on availability). The passion fruit margarita was just ok, too sweet and not enough tequila for my taste. The New England clam chowder was good, and the shrimp cocktail came with 6 nice sized pieces. Service was very pleasant and attentive. We would return when the crab craving hits us!

Even though we had a reservation it was hard to get waited on. The noise level was awful! Way too loud. It’s more of a bar than a restaurant. Will never go back.

I am happy we found this spacious restaurant with a nice warm atmosphere. Fresh seafood and happy hour special-$1 oysters from 5-8pm!
Food was delicious, 6 of us down 6 dozens oysters along with some appetizers. I really like the juicy Cajun chicken wings and the crispy cajun fries with truffle dipping sauce also really tasty as well.

Honestly i feel like the only good thing was the oysters during happy hour they were fresh and $2 only but every thing over priced got a lobster Mac and cheese that was $25 and it was a portion just for a child and the crab legs they gave me was decent but the shrimp was not good definitely don’t recommend for the price they offer oh and the seating sucks no private dining or booths you can hear everyone conversation and when your sitting your so close to the other people next to you you almost can touch elbows
