A one-of-a-kind culinary adventure, the Shrimply Delicious Food Trail along Highway 90 on Louisiana’s Cajun Coast guides visitors to some of the area’s best seafood restaurants. From flavorful po’boys to decadent seafood bisque, you’ll find locally caught Bayou State shrimp prepared in a variety of tasty ways to satisfy every craving.
Here are a few of our top stops on the Shrimply Delicious Food Trail:
Landry’s Seafood & Steakhouse of Jeanerette is a popular spot known for fried seafood. The shrimp po’boy and shrimp étouffée are in the must-try category.
A meat-lover’s paradise, Chick’s Burger in Baldwin has developed a reputation for its hamburgers and hot dogs but their seafood po’boys, which come dressed and feature anything from fried shrimp to crawfish, are divine.
The Lamp Lighter Coffeehouse & Bistro on Main Street in historic downtown Franklin offers an eclectic menu with a wide selection of sustainable coffees, cocktails, and desserts. Grab a table for brunch to try the Creole shrimp and grits.
Cajun fare and classic favorites make The Atchafalaya at Idlewild one of the most flavorful stops along the Cajun Coast. On the menu, you’ll find everything from Bayou Pasta with Shrimp to Fried Shrimp Platters.
Anything fried at Rita Mae’s Kitchen is mouthwatering—catfish, oysters, chicken, you name it. But the shrimp is a standout. You’ll wonder how they make it so good. The homey atmosphere, complete with black-and-white tile and window-unit air conditioners, makes the locale a beloved institution.
The Original Castalano’s is a family-owned restaurant in Morgan City that’s been serving up delicious Italian food for more than 50 years. The restaurant is known for its fresh pasta, homemade sauces, and friendly service. Try the Shrimp Alfredo for a flavorful Bayou State treat.
Located along Morgan City’s main drag, Atchafalaya Café hosts weekly live music performances to enjoy while sampling the Bayou Pasta with Shrimp, Fried Shrimp Platter, and Grilled Fish with Shrimp Sauce. This casual haunt is popular with locals and tourists alike.
Bayou Lagniappe in Berwick has been serving up top-notch Cajun and Creole cuisine for more than two decades. The roadside joint may be famous for having “the best bread pudding in town” but it is the boiled seafood platters that have earned it a spot on the Shrimply Delicious Food Trail!
Claudia’s Soul Food in Patterson serves Southern dishes like Chicken and Waffles, Pork Chops and more. They’re known for their fried chicken, mac and cheese, and greens, but if you’re looking for seafood, the Shrimp Stew, fried seafood po’boys and Shrimp Fettuccine won’t disappoint.
