The Gulf of Mexico is home to a wide range of seafood that makes up the staples of Louisiana and Cajun cooking. Cajun cooking was inspired by a combination of cultures, including the Spanish, Native Americans, and African Americans. Creole and Cajun cuisine is typically full of fragrant spices that give your taste buds a kick. At Boutin’s Seafood Steakhouse and Oyster Bar in Carencro, LA, we create authentic Cajun food that will make your mouth water.
Serving the freshest Louisiana seafood, shucked oysters, and classic-cut steaks, Boutin’s showcases the type of cuisine that locals love to eat. Lafayette-based owner “Lynn Boutin” has been in the restaurant business for over 35 years, and his attention to detail shines at this casual, family-friendly dining spot.
Popular starters include the Crawfish Wontons stuffed with fresh crawfish, jalapeño, pepper jack, and parmesan cheeses served with plum ginger sauce, Stuffed Mushrooms, chockfull of crabmeat dressing and accompanied by house-made tartar sauce, and Steak Bites, tender steak tips prepared lightly fried or grilled with a side of garlic butter sauce for dipping.
Our Oyster Bar offers fresh shucked Raw Oysters on the half shell, traditional Rockafeller Oysters, baked with spinach, artichoke, and parmesan cheese, Chargrilled Oysters with garlic butter and cheese, and new Diablo Oysters that are jacked up with pepper jack cheese, bacon, and jalapeños.
House Specialties include Bayou Boutin – seasoned grilled fish filet topped with crawfish étouffée, Crawfish Enchiladas – a spicy blend of cheeses, crawfish, onions, and peppers topped with Cumin Mornay sauce, and Crabmeat Eggplant – fried eggplant medallions served Napoleon-style with grilled crab cake, topped with creamy lump crabmeat Alfredo sauce.
