My family loves this restaurant. We don't eat out a lot, so we make an occasion of it when we do. We had dinner after the local Mardi Gras parade. It always measures up to our expectations of New Orleans style cuisine and they serve up the best fried seafood and catfish anywhere around NW Arkansas. I'm not an oyster... More

The food taste similar to what you would find in New Orleans without the need to travel. They offer a number of dishes that are freshly prepared. The look of the outside and the parking may be a deterrent, but it is well worth a stop. The Catfish Cecile ($21) features a good size quality catfish fillet covered with good... More

We met friends at the Cafe Rue New Orleans last night having a great meal together. I think everyone loved their food. We had been here years ago and not been impressed. The friends that we met love it here so we were up for trying it again. We recently changed our lifestyle trying to eliminate inflammation from our bodies... More

Delicious food! Large portions, very flavorful! The catfish and étouffée was amazing. Only disappointment is that I didn't discover this place sooner! Excellent service.

Friendly staff and the food was true New Orleans style. I had the gator bites with the spicy ranch sauce and they were excellent and was also a generous portion. My dinner was the Crawfish Etouffee which was also excellent. Down stairs they have a raw bar but call first they do have different hours of operation.

Cafe Rue used to be magical. The last 3 times I've been there over the last few years were a major letdown. The service was good, a bit goofy but good. The wine was good. The food was mediocre and uninspired. At $80 for a dinner for two I expect high quality ingredients. We had to send our first order... More

We had the boat for four of us. Been looking forward to catfish and this was the beat. The boat of built for four but easily could have fed 6. The BEST.
