“Nice neighborhood Cajun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

Dwight's is a large neighborhood place -- cheap chairs and tables, etc, with no decor at all -- and quite good food. We had a fine Cajun shrimp salad and and delicious fried seafood platter. (Too much fried for my taste, but when in Rome...) The most popular dish judging by the rest of the diners was crabs in a Cajun seasoning.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013 via mobile

Maybe the best crawfish and fried shrimp we have ever had. Hours fresh. Not much on atmosphere but hundreds of locals each night are there for a reason. Making us thinking of leaving New Orleans early to hit Lafayette again!

“Nothing Fancy. Just Fill Your Belly and Smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

I went for the Sunday BBQ, and it was outstanding. First of all, the restaurant was supposed to open at 11:00. I got there at 10:55, and the parking lot was already full, which is a sign of a great place to eat. There were a lot of people there, but it was a quickly-moving, cafeteria-style line.

As for the food, it was awesome, and there was a lot of it. My plate actually felt heavy. I had brisket, sausage, rice dressing, green beans, baked beans, and bread, all of which was fantastic.

I highly recommend Dwight's. My only regret is that I didn't try it sooner.

“Best Seafood and Crawfish in Lafayette”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

If you are looking for an up town hoity toity experience with an elegant atmosphere.....look elsewhere......if you're old enough that you are past all that and want to enjoy great food in a great cajun environment with great service find Dwights. Johnston Street is really a traffic jam spot though.....so give yourself plenty of time to get there. Not much to look at from the outside....but step in and you'll find the cleanest neatest little place filled to the brim with cajuns, cooking and eating and telling stories. Great place to enjoy the best crawfish I've ever had... and collosial fried shrimp. ....the staff is helpful as far as offering up menu items and really....we just ordered an array of appetizers on our last visit.........had enough for a midnight snack later. We make the drive down from Alexandria pretty often just for dinner. Jeans, no problem.....business attire.....danceline uniform.....its whatever....its not a fashion show its dinner.......go as you are and be very hungry.......Bon Apetite' Lisa
