Business dinner here, great food, good portions, lots of flavor. Seated us in an area away from the live music, very thoughtful, so we could talk and still be "involved ", with the fun atmosphere. Definitely a good place for your group.

My shrimp po boy wasn’t what I was hoping for, very disappointed. It was dry, not enough remoulade sauce, shrimp were tiny, bread was too hard. The shrimp appetizer I had was pretty good. My husbands lobster sandwich was pretty good and the fries are very good. Just wouldn’t get that shrimp po boy again

Enttäuscht weil Service sehr langsam und unmotiviert. Auf Rechnung zwei mal Lager Bier mit unterschiedlichen Preise. Preise für Getränke und kidsessen zu hoch. Zu kleine Portionen. Special war nicht gültig an Feiertag. Kein Hinweis im Web.

Wow this place is surprisingly good food! The Louisiana/Cajun is authentic and well prepared. The previous reviews don’t do it justice and if someone had poor food I’d say it probably was a super busy day. The music fit the flair of the restaurant. I’m from marksville la and the gumbo was a good attempt! Maple line wings good and the duck and white truffle goat cheese pizza outstanding. Wife’s chicken and waffles wasn’t bad either. Very nice restaurant I’d come back to

We loved Lafayette’s even though it wasn’t perfect. It was a fun atmosphere and the service was great. We are at the bar and Charli the bartender was delightful.

The food was good but some items could have been better. Started with the house salad with white balsamic - really good. The melon ceviche was bland and the seafood was minimal. The redfish was good. The lamb lollipops were over- cooked to well done, although they were still very tasty. Ended with the caramel beignets- excellent although they weren’t as hot as I hoped.

Overall we still loved it and will visit again.

This was an unfortunate choice for my group of 6 friends who wanted to get together for a casual dinner. While we were on the back patio away from the hubbub of the live music it was still very loud. The corn hole game near us was obnoxious. The TV was on and the live music from the front was piped into our area simultaneously. We assumed all the noise was intended to distract us from the mediocre food. Terrible experience.

Besides the fact that one has to pay for parking; the food was outstanding. I had the Shrimp and Grits and would go back to Orlando just for that. Never mind the other attractions. The drinks were fine and service was great. Grits are it!!!!

My only issue with this dining experience is not entirely the fault of the restaurant but I wanted to point it out. We ate outside on the patio, mainly for the people watching. They had live music inside and the restaurant across the walk had live music on the outside. The resultant cacophony was somewhat distracting. The place was not crowded at all, it's that time of year. Food was fresh and appropriately prepared. the service was as I would have excepted.

Great venue for a night out with live music and drinks. The wait staff was very courteous and the food was tasty. Good to grab a bite while you are drinking, not necessarily a foodie place. Nice selection of burgers, sandwiches, and a few flatbreads. The music was enjoyable and not too loud where you could not enjoy conversation. Definitely returning when the days get a little cooler and on a clear night to enjoy the music and cocktails again.

Service was terrible. Waited 10 minutes just to be greeted while watching servers stand around and chat. Had to go to hostess stand just to get attention and let them know no one had been to the table. Had to get the manager to cash us out because server was MIA. Terrible service overall. Food was mediocre. Will not be back.
