I was visiting my dad and this place is right down the street, i wonder why I didn’t check it out before. From the street it looks a little dumpy, but once inside its a gem. One thing I really liked about this place is that they ask you to turn off your phone; FINALLY A PLACE WITH A LITTLE RESPECT- LOVED IT! There is nothing that bugs me more than discourteous morons talking loudly or texting and laughing loudly out loud in your ear when I’m trying to eat or rate beer. I had a really cool raspberry lambic with my alligator bits and really enjoyed the scenery with the deck out on top of the swamp, pretty cool. My dad said his catfish was really good. Good beer selection and a nifty menu. Prices are average for this area. Overall good beer drinken experience. The service was top notch. A must try if you are into cajun food.

Wow. My first visit this past weekend, and I will definitely be back! Paul (the owner) greeted us and came over and talked to us. He was very knowledgeable about beer and very passionate about beer and food. I had the vegetarian plate with deliciously spicy fried okra, and some beautiful whiskey bread pudding. Great time and great beer to drink with the awesome food. Wait staff was Johnny-on-the-Spot, and the view of the water was great.

Finally got to visit today. OUTSTANDING! Atmosphere was amazing. Old style, rustic, bayou style. Felt like i was at someone’s house hanging out on the porch, drinking beer and eating amazing food. Staff rocked! Paul treated us like family. I love this place. Catfish Po’boy was amazing and the Pork Boudin Balls were possibly the best food that I have ever ingested. Good beers listed. Down home style place. A Must visit.

God bless Joe Thibodeaux for opening this place. God bless the new owner for including good beers to the menu. 15 taps of good beers, loads of bottles, a charming decor reminiscent of Louisiana and superb Cajun food. Rich and beans was delicious. Quick and friendly service.

Je laisse les bons temps roulez @ Cajun Café. Ambiance, ok, how to explain this, walking into Bourbon street on the bayou in Florida, greeted by a jolly Brit from Bristol in sweltering FL humidity, get the picture? Subtle Cajun tunes playing in the back with carnivalesque setting. Quench your thirst with LA beer, or even better, a local FL brew, enjoy hot and spicy gator along with other Cajun grub. Cajun Café is an experience in itself that is by far the best place in the Tampa area, away from the corporate feel and industrial style building. Go there when they have Cajun bands or crab festival and you will understand why this spot is one not to be missed.

Cajun Café on the Bayou is probably my favorite place in the Tampa Bay area! The food is great, the atmosphere is great, and the beer is great! I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants good cajun food and craft beer!!! #25 on Best Beer Restaurants 2011www.ratebeer.com should be in the top 10!

I can’t say enough about the Cajun Cafe and Paul Unwin, the owner. Not only is his love of beer evident in everything he does, the food is excellent, the service is top notch, and everything about the place makes you want to eat and drink more. A true beer- and food- lovers paradise, tucked away overlooking the bayou. Do not miss this one!

Wonderful place that looks like a New Orleans bayou shack. Food selection is authentic creole-style, with fish, seafood, spicy fare, and po-boys. Also saw people eating buckets of crawfish. Yee-Haw! Beer selection is very good, and I found 2 Cigar City offerings here. Service was good, and prices were affordable. Wonderful place.

Been to this place on a recomendation and found it to be a very nice eatery. Beer refills were a little slow, but being that it’s a restaurant and not a bar, it was to be expected as they were busy. Louisiana style decor, and a dock on the water. Some of the most authentic LA food I’ve tasted outside the State itself! Washed down with one of my favorite beers Denver PA by the Great Divide!

Visited in November, 2008. Quaint collection of buildings and rooms on the river in Pinellas Park, FL. Has a slighty intentional run-down, country appearance with ample seating inside and out. Very nice selection of craft beers on tap that included Abita, Bells, Brooklyn, Dunedin, Flying Dog, Left Hand, Lost Coast, Rogue, Orange Blosson Pilsner, DFH, and Unibroue with about 50 craft bottles. Not a lot of macros anywhere to be found either. Food selection was excellent and everything we tried was very good.
