Really liked this place- had a great selection of new and older bottles, and the local tap list was about 20 strong (not including non-local taps). the decor and ambiance was great. the inside was a bit on the cheesy side, but outside is a deck on little swamp that really makes the ambiance sing. food was good, big servings, and cheap. Definitely try the dessert. And if you’re drinking, you might want to drink inside since they serve beer in plastic cups if you’re outside.

I was here for the sourfest in June of 2012.

Great place with lots of Louisiana style decor and a great outdoor area that often has great live music.

Service was great during the festival. Lots of snacks being walked around and all that good stuff. Paul was making sure things were getting done!

Awesome selection of beers for a restaurant in Tampa. Paul certainly knows what he’s doing and what to look for!

The food was delicious, especially all the snacks, but ESPECIALLY the crawfish cornbread. MMMMMMM that stuff is like crack.

I can’t particularly comment on the value as I was there for a fest, but I assume everything is worth the prices.

Overall, a definite must stop in Pinellas Park, that’s for sure!

Any place that has Sculpin on tap has my instant respect. Great location right on a bayou, with kids fishing and kayakers jayaking nearby. Tap list of 15 was impressive, bottle list was solid. Food was OK - gumbo was plain, crab cakes were tadty enough but could have used less binding ingredients. Great service. Worth a stop.

Food was average at best. No roast beef for po-boys and not sure where the bread comes from but it isn’t anything even close to Louisiana French bread. Service was slow and hardly anyone in the restaurant. True Cajun/ creole is impossible to find in this town

I was down for Hunapu’s Day and heard about this place. The tap list and bottle list was impressive, I had the Crab Cakes and the Creole Gumbo, both were great! I also decided to try the Whiskey Bread Pudding, thank god I did, best damn bread pudding I have ever had!! If I were local to the area I would frequent the Cajun Cafe regularly!! I am glad I tried this place, it was a great experience!!

I just love this place and that’s all there is to it. Best fried oyster po boy I’ve ever tasted and I’ve tasted a lot of them. Fresh, fresh, fresh oysters. The atmosphere is more "cajun" and "bayou" than any joint in or around New Orleans. Also, the place is actually on a Mthrfckng bayou. How cool is that?

One of the true gems in the Tampa Bay area. Wonderful Cajun food in a down home setting. Restaurant is off the road on a "bayou" which makes for a wonderful setting. Have spotted various forms of wildlife during my numerous visits. Nthe beer menu is beyond great for a restaurant. Numerous quality draft offerings (6 or so Cigar City) and a very large bottle list. The owners are wonderful and set the hospitable tone that is found here. The servers are knowledgeable about the beer and food and are very quick. The food is wonderful as good as you would find in Louisiana. This place is the total package. Try it you will be glad you did.

Dinner with my wife. Fantastic food, beer selection for both tap and bottles so good for a restaurant (would be even for most of the bars). Staff so nice, Paul served us a sampler of 5 drafts plus threw in 2 extras for free. A must to visit if you are in the Tampa area.

Situated on the bayou in Pineallas Park, Cajun Cafe will make you feel like you are in Louisiana. The draft beer selection isn’t tremendously large but it is definitely quality over quantity with a large bottle selection as well. Both the owners and staff are spot on. With a combination of great food and beer as well as several beer festivals per year, Cajun Cafe is a must stop.
