This is an great seafood place. I came here while visiting Birmingham on a family trip. The place was full, even on a Wednesday night, which is a good sign for a restaurant. The food was excellent, very fresh seafood, great flavor, and the right price! The service was great, friendly, efficient and on point. I would recommend this place... More

Our family went to the Cajun steamer for dinner on Good Friday, as we wanted crawfish and shrimp. We're from Louisiana so we are used to eating boiled crawfish and shrimp po- boys. My husband and I ordered the 1/2 order of boiled crawfish, which was just 1-1/4 lb of crawfish (pricey $13.95) with a small potato and piece of... More

Enjoyed an after church lunch recently at Cajun Steamer Restaurant located in Patton Creek shopping center. We entered through the back door and went up to the greeter stand and were promptly sat in a booth. Our greeter could have done more to be hospitable and make a recommendation but just went through the motions seating us. Our server immediately... More

Having family in New Orleans means I graded on a scale, starting with, nothing matches N.O. local food. So, taking that into account, I found the food to be good, they did the grilled gator the right way and the jambalaya was tasty. Service a bit slow at lunch. But I would go again.

We have been coming here for a couple of years and always enjoyed it. The crawfish etouffee was always some of the best I've had. However, they recently changed the recipe and now I rate it as some of the worst I have had. I am taking this place off of my list.

No matter how many times I have been here, I have never been disappointed. We have also done take out from them. I usually get shrimp and grits with some gumbo. My wife always gets Melvins blackened chicken and if my pants haven't split I get bread pudding.

Came in for lunch. I am not a seafood person, but they had some good chicken and side items to satisfy my desires. My server Abi was excellent.

We were looking for a particular and found they were closed. While driving around drove by this place. We had steak the night before so decided to try Cajun Steamer. We sure were surprised. The food was really good. My wife had the Cajun red beans and sausage with rice and I had a seafood casserole with fried green tomatoes.... More
