Wow! From the moment I walked in I was greeted by cheerful host and shown to my table where I was meeting my party. Our server Justin was friendly, kind and attentive. Our food was exquisite! Compliments to the chef! The decor and charm of the house is quite pleasing! I wander upstairs where the bar was also a live jazz duo playing, it very awesome! I also noticed there was outside seating available which would wonderful for a cooler evening. I cannot wait to bring my mom here for dinner. This will become staple to bring any and all of my family and friends to from now on!!
Barbecue shrimp was spot on and definitely reminded me of authentic New Orleans cuisine. The fried oyster dinner was plentiful in volume, juicy and fried delicately. The grits were smooth stone ground grits and delicious! Friend enjoyed her shrimp and grits and gumbo. Service was attentive and kept drinks full and hot bread on the table. I will definitely return again for dinner. Very reasonably priced.
What a lovely place. I had a cup of Gumbo, totally delicious, I could eat it every day. I also had the Crayfish Scampi and Fried Green Tomatoes, also very good. At 7PM a lady and a gentleman started to play jazz, it was so lovely. Staff was kind, helpful, joyful and polite. Thank you for everything!
Yesterday morning my husband and I had the absolute pleasure of dining here. McGregor provided impeccable service! He was so genuinely kind, was very knowledgeable, and provided one of the best dining experiences weve ever had. The food was amazing and the portions were plentiful! We are already planning to visit Charlotte again in the near future to dine here again. Thank you all! If its your first time I highly recommend starting with the bbq shrimp and fried oysters.
On a whim, my family and I drove from Columbia, SC to Charlotte, NC on a beautiful, warm Sunday afternoon for dinner to discover the Cajun Queen tucked away amidst a commercial/ residential neighborhood. While we didn't have reservations, the hostess pleasantly found a table for us. While I vacillated between a seafood platter or shrimp and grits, I opted for the seafood platter. My husband ordered the pork chop. My children ordered catfish and shrimp. GET THE FRIED CATFISH! The chef fried all of the seafood to perfection, and I could not have been more pleased with our selections. The fish flaked well against my fork and was well-seasoned. One of the best characteristics of Cajun Queen in addition to food quality, taste, and flavor was the food came out piping hot; I appreciate a hot versus lukewarm dish. Thank you for a pleasant experience.
