I am so sorry you were disappointed with your meal on your visit to Dee's. I will say that our Cajun entrees are a little "northernized". When we first opened and prepared those dishes in the authentic style I don't think our guests were ready...More

We had the shrimp etouffee and a steak; both were very good. The waiter was helpful in choosing a wine and brought us extra bread. We enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.

Great appetizers. Half price on Monday night. I had the Ravioli and it was good. The service was slow but very friendly. Love the ambiance. Located in a Great area, very cool German area.

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.
