Was encouraged by a friend to try this place. First, service was excellent. Attentive server, didn't wait for anything. However, dining area was too crowded. Hardly any room for customers or servers to walk around. Food was disappointing. I ordered the ribs and wife had the crawfish pot pie. Ribs were tough and bland. Pot pie was small but served...

This is a fairly new restaurant in the area, and I've come to love this place. Most Cajun cuisine is fried in oil, but this place manages to capture all the Cajun flavored using a grill instead. It's a mishmash of Lafayette Cajun and New Orleans creole cuisines that I really enjoy. I highly recommend the crawfish pot pie.

My Son suggested this restaurant, which is a little out of the way. There is nothing stuffed-shirt about the atmosphere. It joins a cozy neighborhood feeling and a Cajun menu with superb taste that will delight the tastebuds. Appetizers of stuffed mushrooms and the sausage and boudin board are a choice I will definitely repeat on my next visit. There... More

Their shrimp po boy was tasty but the bread was too much! Wish they would hollow out the bread like their fierce competitor does that way you could taste the shrimp and actually fit the sandwich into your mouth to take a bite. I ended up having to fork the sandwich which was ridiculous.

Traveling on New Years Day looking for an open cajun restaurant. Found Bon Temps on map app. The location is off the highway and worth the trip over. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. The place was almost full at 2pm. Booths and tables and a small bar with some tvs showing football. The menu was up to our... More

We've made several trips to this place over lasts few years while visiting Lafayette and it's never disappointed! The Boudin and Sausage Board (tray) is one of our favorite appetizers around! The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the choice of sides are like no where else... our favorite side is the Sweet Potato Mash and I enjoy the... More

Have not heard of Bon Temps Grill. Saw the reviews on tripadvisor so, sure why not? Not what we expected when we drove up but WOW, neat place! It's small (that's good). It's dark (that's good) It's not to noisy (that's even better) The food was better than expected for the looks of the venue. A pleasant surprise! Sure, we... More

We were traveling through Lafayette and had one lunch stop. What restaurant to choose? Bon Temps Grill was the best choice ever! Excellent crab cake, red fish, shrimp & grits. The chef is to be commended, the wait staff showed hospitality to us as if we were regulars. The other plates delivered to other tables looked just as tempting. The... More

I am a Lafayette native. I visit family and friends at least once a year, sometimes twice. I always visit the standbys, but I like to explore the new restaurants. I was excited about trying this one, based on the various ratings, reviews, and news stories. My mother and a friend and I decided to try it for lunch. On... More
