About

Home to the flavorsome platters of South Louisiana, Cajun Queen is a converted home restaurant, the architecture of which dates back to the vintage early 18th century. A nostalgic iteration of the 1980's New Orleans greets the visiting patrons, with purple, green and golden themed décor priming the interiors at Cajun Queen. The dining experience is equally comfortable, and customers can cine in the living room, expanded restroom, sunroom or wrought iron rooftop terrace.

From crawfish to seafood, gumbo to steak—the servings at Cajun Queen are a concoction of culinary choices. Fried shrimp, etouffee, blackened chicken breast, bayou platter, ribeye steak and frenbch cut pork chop are often the most ladled platters which customers like to order. Wine servings prime the bar area to complement the authentic Cajun flavors.

This was my first time visiting Cajun Queen. My husband and I had a wonderful time on our date night. We started the night with the exquisite barbecue shrimp and the entree of shrimp creole. It was Superior!! The food was season perfect and stay extremely hot until the last bite.

The food is absolutely wonderful. The ambiance and service is good. However, if you are looking for a nice romantic flair do not sit near the band as it can be a bit noisy.

This was my sixth time visiting, as always the food is excellent. This time the service was horrible, so much so that I tipped the bus boy instead of the waiter. Our waiter was never around, was condescending, and rude. We had to flag down other waiters or the busboy for drink refills and the bread and we were never checked on. When the waiter was flagged down he asked if we were ready for dessert and I replied we are ready for the check he stomped off like a little kid who could not careless. What is so sad...this was a birthday dinner for my father. We will go back, hopefully we will not encounter the same waiter.

Canjun Queen has been the solid favorite spot in Charlotte since my return to the area four years ago. Menu items are always consistent and the specials always deserve their name. Great for a birthday for six or a quite dinner for two. Prices are fair and value is always at least or more than wold be anticipated. Thank you to the staff and management.

Having been to Louisiana, we thought the food was pretty good. It did favor the Creole side of cooking versus the Cajun side. Would like to see a bit more of the brown sauces as opposed to the red. The atmosphere was wonderful!

"The Queen" never lets me down whether just a fun time with friends or introducing someone to her for the first time. YUMMMMMMMM Been one of my standards since she opened and I lived within walking distance. Keep up the GREAT reputation!!!!
