We visit family once a year & eat at Cheniere Shack every time. We are from Arkansas. I tried the $10 lunch during week & it was hamburger steak which was huge & covered in onions & gravy, rice, had salad, drink, roll, & dessert. It was so good!! Oh & it also had field peas.

Food is OK. They are overpriced to the point I don't see how they have been in business this long. I guess it's us local folks that just don't want to go into town.

My husband and I went Friday night to have a bite as we were both too tired to cook. I had fried shrimp and my husband had the shrimp and oyster plate. Very good and the service was great.

Waiter was really nice & food was delicious! Love the onion rings with the Cajun ketchup! Coconut cake is incredible! I got fish sandwich & fries & it was really good! It is clean & we just love eating there when we come to town.

We were so disappointed with our last 2 visits, that we haven't been back! The last time we had crawfish here, they were overpriced and about the size of my thumb - that was the whole crawfish, not the tail! Haven't went here for crawfish since! On our most recent visit. I ordered a steak medium well - the waitress... More

Terrible service. Mediocre food. Not worth your time. I have tried this restaurant on four different occasions over a period of 6 years. I think I gave them time to improve- they didn't. I'm not a fussy customer, never made any extraordinary requests. Not worth it, don't bother, don't waste your time and money.

Came here for lunch last Friday, after begging my hubby to take me. He didn't want to go because of all the bad reviews about the owner. It had been 2 years since I have been here and back then the shrimp was awesome. I thought the shrimp poboys and fries were excellent! My husband said it was very good,... More

The food at the Cheniere Shack is outstanding. I've only eaten lunch here but I've ordered a lot of things off the menu or the normal lunch special. The service is lacking and there never seems to be the same people that waited on you previously. Otherwise I like eating here but the service has to improve.
