We came to check out the new menu, and it did not disappoint. The fried soft shell crab is one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. The corn maque choux that it was served with had crab meat in it and was absolutely divine.

Cody was a wonderful server. As always the Caesar salad with the deviled egg, Chefs kiss! We were there for my birthday and I couldn’t wait to get my medium rare steak. It of course did not disappoint. My fiancé and dad got the market catch of the day which was a beautiful plate and they raved about the trout. Charley G’s never disappoints!

Fabulous restaurant near the University. Excellent vibe as the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Peter, the owner / chef, is someone that Lafayette is enormously lucky to have in our city. Interesting and novel approaches that end up being remarkable.

I've been to Supper Club a few times and have yet to be dissapointed. It's not an every night type of place, but if you are in the mood for a fun vibe it's a great place to eat, drink, and enjoy company. Tonight was my first time eating at the bar, and I'll say it may be my go-to moving forward. Bartenders were all very engaging and food service was just as well organized.
