Our story begins here…

On the banks of the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where a Cajun man and his wife opened up a restaurant serving authentic bayou fare with a Louisiana vibe. It’s a place where people go to let the rolling of the river carry away their cares for a while so they can relax and enjoy time spent with friends and family. This laid-back Cajun experience came to Paducah, Kentucky in July, 2020 so a whole new community could experience the down-home Cajun rhythms, and laissez les bon temps rouler!

So come on in, cher, have a seat and stay a while. Let us bring the bayou to you!
