We had the Friday special Ribs and Chicken. It was a fabulous meal that also included Jambalaya and coleslaw. We would definitely go again.

First time visit for a birthday - Excellent strawberry margerita (made with real fruit,not syrup!!!). Food delicious, service very attentive but not intrusive. Really wanted the grilled oysters, but they were not available that night. Our other dishes were delicious and plentiful. Recommend!

It is the third time I have been to the downtown location and have had wonderful service. The food and drinks are amazing and the servers are friendly and accurate.
I look forward to my next visit.

This is a hidden gem in Edmonton. With all the new housing downtown I expected it to be busier on a Saturday night but it turned out just perfect for a group of friends to hang out at.

This was my first visit to Louisiana Purchase. I looked forward to sampling the menu, and I was not disappointed. I began with a Delta Lady cocktail, recommended by our server, and it was delicious. My companion and I had the alligator kabob for an appetizer. Neither of us had tasted alligator and wow. It was cooked perfectly, flavoured perfect, and the bed of spicy bean salsa complemented the dish. The entrees were scrumptious, the desert divine. Highly recommended and will definitely be going back for more.

Unfortunately, the food is not as good as it has been in the past. I had jambalaya with creole sauce. It was not very spicy. Other members of our party had pork tenderloin and said it was not very tender.
I have always raved about the food, but not now.
Thank you for the opportunity to review.

just heading to the oilers game, Louisiana is a great spot to have a meal before the game, and they provide free customer parking, for the whole evening, great food, drink, and very friendly staff.
try it we have been dining here for years.

I came here for the first time to have supper with a friend of mine. The food was incredible and our server was personable, attentive, and made us feel right at home. I will definitely be back in the future, and will visit the other location in town as well. Keep up the great work!!

The meal and the ambiance was wonderful. My only complaint was that the fried chicken was not what was expected and the coleslaw was bland.

Went there for the first time for our 28th anniversary. Very good food with large portions. We were so stuffed. The Managment and staff were very accommodating with us on our special date. We even got a couple of surprises. 😃

The food and the atmosphere were excellent as we enjoyed our meal before venturing out to the Elton John concert. It was especially nice to try dishes that are not "regular" that every other restaurant serves. The quality of the meal was tremendous and the hosts and service were top notch. We will definitely be back.

I never know what to say here but I will do my best. On arrival we were greeted at the door by two friendly people and shown to a very nice table in the corner. My daughter and I spent a very enjoyed hour plus. The food was great and the service was friendly and non intrusive. The only thing that wasn't so great was the food was so good and plentiful that there was no room for dessert.

It’s like eating at grandma’s - warm and inviting! The crab cakes were wonderful, the lobster bisque was rich and creamy, the boudin absolutely can’t be beaten! And of course the bread pudding is a must! Highly recommended!

Absolutely fantastic! Our server was awesome, the drinks and food were delicious. The crab cakes, skewers, catfish, chicken n’waffles, and jambalaya did not disappoint. Everything was full of wonderful flavours. And even if you don’t think there is enough room for dessert, go for the bananas foster!

We’ve never been to Louisiana Purchase before. The waitress was excellent - probably the best service I’ve ever had. The pickle gin Caesar was also the best Caesar I’ve ever had. Amazing! I loved the tv screen with pictures of the food since we’d never been before. Very helpful for choosing a dish. The food portions were very generous. I took more than half my Jambalaya home. I love spicy food and I found the Jambalaya to be a little spicy but there are lots of things on the menu that aren’t as spicy. We’ll be back!

Great place. Been coming here for years! Good food, fantastic service, great cocktails! I always bring friends from out of town here to get some more than decent Cajun eats. I highly recommend the crab cakes and the fried green tomatoes!
