Eat Lafayette - Gator Cove

If you are looking for a restaurant that perfectly captures the taste and feel of South Louisiana, you have to check out Gator Cove! Gator Cove is 100% Louisiana, combining delicious Cajun food with an exciting atmosphere filled with gators, deer and peacocks. Gator Cove gives its patrons a taste of what Cajun country really is.

The building in which Gator Cove resides was initially built in the early 80s as a garage.  Aubrey and Bonnie Henderson built the garage to house their Bluebird bus; however, the screeching of metal upon metal as Mr. Henderson tried to park the bus proved that the garage wasn't tall enough for the bus.

The Hendersons had to find a new purpose for their garage.  Since they already owned a barbecue lodge, they decided to expand their business.  In 1982, Gator Cove was opened up in the Henderson's garage.  Since then, both the building and the menu have grown to accommodate larger and larger crowds hungry for some Cajun cookin'.

As a homestyle restaurant, Gator Cove caters to all things Louisiana, specializing in barbecue, fresh seafood, crawfish, succulent steaks, po’ boys, and more! The menu has something to please the entire family, including plate lunches, children's dishes, and an assortment of delicious desserts. A full catering menu and party rooms are also available for those hosting parties or other special events.

Gator Cove, like all local seafood restaurants, is booming with business this crawfish season, but mud bugs aren't the only thing bringing in customers.  It's the entire Cajun menu, the fun and welcoming atmosphere, and the friendly service that Gator Cove has to offer.  Stop by for lunch or dinner and see what Gator Cove has in store for you!

Now you really have me hankering for some of that great looking (and tasting) food.  Sounds like Gator Cove is a gem of a place.

Okay I might have to go to Macon for dinner tomorrow night.  I can't drive all the way to Louisiana.  We do have a great Cajun place there.
