My first hint that this wasn't going to be a good experience was when one couple got up and left - the service was so slow and they were completely ignored!

The food was so-so...
The service was terrible. Beyond slow. My son and husband

Everything on the menu has a definite cajun flavor and there is something on the menu for everyone. I love everything I've tasted and have to force myself to try something different on each trip. The price are reasonable and the servings

I had a bad experience the first time; tried it a second and it was only okay; third time I realized I didn't need to go again. The first time there was a hot sauce cap in my dish. They didn't charge me for the meal, but it was still awful. Everything here is fried; but seems LA southern true. My clothes always stink after I leave this place. The decorations and atmosphere are fun. I wish I had great things to say about the food, but I don't.

I was a little hesitant to eat here after reading the reviews online, but I also know I never hesitate to give a bad review as opposed to a good one, so I thought I would do the Depeaux some justice online!\r

Pros: The food and the service, the price matched the portion size

Cons: Parking could get tricky, but we got there early and it was easy

.

I liked the food. I ended up getting a fish dish (sorry, can't remember which one) and it was well-seasoned and nicely cooked. The owner was very personable, and offered us a sample of the gator, which turned out to be very tasty. I also

Pros: Gorgeous setting, decent food

Cons: pretty small portions for the price, poorly executed drinks at the bar

I went with a group and we really enjoyed it. The jambalaya is a bit weird though - very dry for some reason and not what we expected. Tasty but more like beans and rice. The shrimp and grits was yummy as were the desserts - especially the

Pros: Most of the food was tasty - came out hot and fast

Cons: jambalaya was dry - not what typical jambalaya is like. Very little parking - mostly street parking

After working hard on the volunteer committee to save the old train station, I was really hoping this wonderful building and location would be put to better use than this mediocre restaurant. The food is not good .I lived in New Orleans

I've been here a few times, and while the food is pretty good, the service ranges from attentive and quick to downright rude. Additionally, for entrees that are 15$ and up, it would be nice if the staff could actually manage to wipe down

Pros: great beer on tap, tasty po-boys

Cons: parking, service

I found this place to be a good atmosphere to have some fun and drinks with friends. The catagory 3 hurricane drink is enough to knock your socks off, for those with adventerous spirits you can go up to catagory 5. The food is pretty

Pros: Cajun Cuisine, Dessert, Hurricane Drinks

Cons: Parking, Standard Bar Food Not So Great

I dine out usually two to three times a week and this BY FAR had to be one of the WORST dining experiences I've ever had since moving to Atlanta 15 yrs ago. The waiter smarted-off when we asked to order our drinks and food at the same

Cons: staff & owners incompetenent with handling customer issues. Terrible attitudes

The place was packed the night my mom and I went in, and that seemed like a good sign. However, it was unbelievably loud. She and I were shouting across the table at each other the whole time. When we sat down, the table was sticky and

As a single Mom with three kids, I hardly ever have free time and some cash to go out for a meal.\r
Tonight was a rare chance to go to a resturant that I hoped would be as good as my memories \r

Pros: that it is close to other restaurants, so when you walk out, you won't have to walk far to get good food

Cons: service, never got to order to eat

.

The atmosphere seems forced. The music is disruptively loud and the decor's character is unnatural. The food was fine. Not too hot, not too cold. Not too flavorful, not too bland. The catfish was outstanding, but the fries were soggy.

Pros: outdoor seating, garlic bread

Cons: the food

I'm not from New Orleans, so I can't vouch for the authenticity, but the food was great. Simple, well prepeared, fresh ingredients. I didn't find their menu to be extremely expensive. They have prices ranging from $11 - $18 most dishes

Which isn't a good thing. We dined at the Depeaux tonight, and we (our party of 3) were pretty disappointed. When we looked at the menu, we couldn't believe the prices, they were HIGH. I don't consider myself a cheap person, but If

Pros: Nice Service, Prompt.

Cons: Loud, way overpriced for Decatur.

This place has great Cajun & Creole dishes from authentic South Louisiana receipes. And this family has brought life, back to this wonderful old train depot, right off the square. The city had them move it away from it's orginal location

Pros: Great Historical Building, Gumbo, and BBQ Shrimp!

Cons: Not Open For Brunch Yet, But Coming Soon!

A Great addition to the choices for dining in Decatur. I believe it is the only Cajun Restaurant in this area. They serve everything, including gator and frog legs. However, I stuck to the seafood dishes and gumbo. I was quite impressed.
