We absolutely loved this place, from the ambiance and vibe straight through to the service, food and drinks. Don’t miss the Breaux Bread or the Teche Wellington.

We had a wonderful anniversary meal and the food was fabulous. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The pre-dinner drinks from the bar were delicious as well. The new chef definitely met our expectations for a great meal at the Inn. A big thanks to everyone there for a wonderful experience.

This was a dinner for a cozy birthday celebration. There was notice once we got there that it was someone's birthday as well as a signed card at the table. That was a GREAT touch to the beginning of the meal! Ernie was our waiter and he was very familiar with everything and that is always a special touch to add to the experience. We started out with drinks and the bread was awesome. The appetizer was superb with it being the truffle mac and cheese. The entries were chicken parmesan and shrimp Ceaser salad. Both were excellent. The dessert was this chocolate dish that was a great way to end the meal. Everything was awesome and we can't wait to return to this restaurant.

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.

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!
