“Come as you are dining”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Have been eating here for years. Always a great place and home cooking type of food. Really love the Cajun Baby potato or Cajun Baby grilled catfish. Peggy's boiled shrimp--WOW, and ask for Peggy sauce to go with it. The burgers are great and you have a choice of buns-plain or jalapeno. Many people drive up on their boats or jet skis to enjoy a great meal. If you have a large group you need to call ahead so they can reserve tables for you. There are a few tables on the porch that over look the bayou. Please note that Peggy's is like a fish camp, so it is a very casual place, but a place that will treat you like family.

“Delicious Fresh Seafood.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Not a fancy place just down home comfort with a friendly staff. Food is very fresh and delicious. They usually have great specials. Family member told me the burgers are excellent as well. Gonna have to drop in and try those the next time.

“Not a good experience.”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Had supper there with friends. The salad was nothing but iceberg lettuce, the fried shrimp were over cooked and too much batter, the baked potato appeared to have been heated more than once, and was dried out, service was not good. Overall bad experience. Will not go back .

“Good family place”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Peggy's now has two locations in Orange and we have eaten at both. I prefer the one on Hwy 62 because of the room inside. But both offer the same menu and quality of food. I've eaten the shrimp taco, gumbo, platters and pistolettes and they were all good. The service is kind of hot and cold. I've eaten there in groups and with my husband. Kids love the 'crabby patties'.

“great place”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

the name is absolutely correct. it sits right on the bayou. if you eat on the back screened porch, you overlook the water. a large group, on jet skis, were there, when we were. the wait staff did an excellent job of getting orders taken and delivered to tables. i got the "grilled" shrimp. it wasn't . it looked to have been boiled.my son loved it. my son and husband liked their food. all in all, great place and friendly people.walk around, outside and look at the boats docked their.
