The wife and I stopped in there for lunch and were pleased with the little place. The food was really good, the menu was a good example of cajun cuisine. The wait staff were attentive and helpful. Nice place for a leisurely lunch.

The staff has always been great when we've visited...didn't disappoint again when we went and had some gumbo my friends were skeptical because they've never had it but once we left they kept saying it was the best meal they've ever had.

Likely a victim of high rent, the food is really good, but the quantity and price make this dining experience one that a local avoids.

I grew up in Louisiana and moved to Colorado in 2015. The only thing I miss about the south is the food! This place fills that hole in my heart. It feels so authentic that I almost forget I'm not back home. I had dinner on my birthday, it was wonderful. I had the red beans and they were perfect.... More

Yummy Cajun cuisine - best Cajun this side of the Mississippi! Great atmosphere - a little rustic, but the food makes up for it. Friendly service, just not so good at multitasking - but the did more than makes up for it. We had gumbo, red beans and rice, jambalaya, and beignets. Did not disappoint.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Glenwood Springs, and we almost always stop here every time we are in town for a weekend. There are big garage doors that open up to the patio in warm weather, and they bring you a tray of samples every time so that you can taste a few of the... More

We loved this little restaurant. It has great atmosphere, and it was a gorgeous fall day so it was open air and we could eat outside. The service was terrific, and if it is your first visit they bring you a complimentary sampler of several of the dishes, which was a great help in deciding what to order. I got... More

We were looking to visit Juicy Lucy which happened be closed for remolding... SO happy we wandered into The Lost Cajun. We had a fabulous waitress Alexia. She was very cordial and she promptly brought a sample board and we immediately went for the chicken & sausage gumbo. While we were waiting we ordered a basket of hush puppies that... More
