Made reservation, got a call from the restaurant the next day saying they were going to be closed that day because they didn't have enough help to staff the restaurant.
soups and gumbo were great. fried foods were very greasy. hush puppies good.
We really enjoyed the appetizers. The Caesar dressing on my salad was also tasty!
I must say that I picked Prudomme's because I was there before for lunch and the food was good and different. That still applies but I was unimpressed this time for dinner. The menu was varied and cajun which I like. I ordered the Mac and Cheese with lobster - it was ok - but very dry - not much sauce. Big chunks of lobster.
So this time was ok - but not as good as I remembered.
We ate at The Lost Cajun Kitchen Memorial Day weekend 2016. We started with a Cajun Whoopie Pie, which in the case consisted of a crab cake between two corn muffin disks. It came with a terrific herb dipping sauce and we both loved it. My partner then had the bucket of crawfish and I had the crab-stuffed sole. Both dishes were authentically made and very flavorful. The portions were generous for the price. The chef is Paul Prudhomme's brother, so he got the real recipes for sure! The building is a former speakeasy with all the secret bells and a cool vibe.
A group of eleven "foodie" friends, most from out of town, were delighted with our "Lost Cajun Kitchen" experience. The service was very good, the food was fantastic, and we all had a wonderful time. As far as I know this is the only authentic Cajun restaurant in the region, and it is not to be missed.
You wouldn't know it was just the Mighty Susquehanna just down the street, and not the other Mighty River - the Mississippi... by the quality and variety of the Naw'lins food. There wasn't an appetizer or entree we didn't want to try, so we'll have to come back again and again to sample them all. But BIG BUBBA’S COMBO is going to be hard to ignore (and share) in any future meal.
Excellent and authentic Canun cuisine above the Mason Dixon line. Don't miss it!!!
We really enjoyed our meal. The waitress, Danielle, was friendly
Very disappointed with the quality of the food. The food was not visually appealing and not tasty at all. The server and host were friendly.
Haven't been here in 15+ years....it was every bit as good as I remembered. My husband loved it too. It was his first visit.
The food is great! Real deal! We took friends who are foodies this time and they loved it too.
If you're looking for genuine New Orleans Cajun cooking in York or Lancaster this is the place. We got a special they were doing for two and the amount of food was just right. The salad was small but the Big Bubba Seafood Combo entree made up for it. The atmosphere, and music on the night we went, would appeal to an older crowd but since it was our first time there can't say that this is the norm.
Been wanting to try this place and was not disappointed.
A gem. Nice "neighborhood" or "corner restaurant" feel with a wonderful menu at a reasonable. The food tastes like it has been seasoned for hours, not ten minutes. And the wait staff was both competent and friendly without being overbearing. Can't wait to go back even though it was a 45 minute drive.
Prudhomme's is a fun place to go if you're looking for something a little different. We've been going here off and on over the years. It was not crowded (Sat. night) like I thought used to be. Maybe it's not "the" place to go anymore?? Food was okay - I had mac and cheese and felt like it was a glammed up box mix, however the shrimp I had on top was very good. It's a nice place to go with friends if you want a relaxed atmosphere. The service was excellent!
This place is great if you are looking to try something new and different. The delicious creole cuisine is very similar to many of the great restaurants I visited while in New Orleans. Our family favorite is the alligator. Must try!
We went between lunch and dinner so it was quiet. Very nice staff, interesting menu. We have had cajun elsewhere, this was the best, most authentic of anywhere we have tried. The ambience was fun and it is in a great old building that we hear is haunted!
First time here, friend suggested since I like all foods hot and spicey. The beauty is my wife doesnt but there is plenty to choose from for everyones pallet. The atmosphere was just like being in LA. It truly is a diamond hidden in a cave!
My wife and I ate at Prudomme's Friday night and it was fantastic! The service was great and the food was outstanding!!! I will definitely go back and recommend this place to friends and family. You can tell that they are passionate about what they do. I real gem in Columbia, PA
