We stumbled across this place on a hot day with no idea if it was going to be good or not. Being from the Deep South and raised on this type of cuisine, I was brought back to my childhood by bursts of flavorful foods....More

Not inexpensive, but worth the price. Portions are smaller than they used to be but the food is excellent. Emphasis is on Cajun food.Highly recommend the gumbo and jambalya.

Had the opportunity to dine at Dee Felice for my birthday in February. The atmosphere is very cozy with a live jazz band. Prices were reasonable. My party enjoyed Filet Mignon and Fettucini Alfredo. We’d dine there again.

We came for the live jazz music after dinner. Very nice and we recommend. The music was excellent and we had good drinks....beer, cocktails, and bourbon.

Hi-Go to their actual website. It shows the steaks on the menu. I've never had a steak there. It's a New Orleans style menu with many options. I usually get the shrimp Po' Boy. Google them and you can get their website!

Not sure where to buy red beans and rice in a jar. I would buy them separately and cook according to type of rice and status of beans.
