If you are in the downtown town area of Lafayette, you must check out this Restuarant. Best southern style meals like we cook at home. There is something on the menu to please everyone. The price is low to medium range.the food is like Sunday lunch at Grandmas

This restaurant has been around for many years. The food is nothing fancy just good consistent quality home style cajun food. Location is downtown and there is easy parking nearby. So if you are visiting downtown Lafayette .....give it a try.

The food at Antlers is very delicious. Just like mother's cooking. Cannot select a special dish because everything is worth sampling.

There isn't much to it on the outside, but the staff is super friendly, and the food is excellent. Try whatever the special of the day is. It's always great.

Wow. What a disappointment. I had heard really good things about the food here and it was not appealing at all. Dear, dreary and smells like a nasty bar. Honestly couldn't wait to be furnished. I think it's more of a lunch hangout for men and I don't mind hole-in-the-wall places if the food is good but I would definitely... More
