Pat's Cajun Seafood and Steak: Crawfish etouffee
BATON ROUGE - A relatively new eatery on Jefferson Highway aims to please its patrons with fresh cajun cuisine guaranteed to leave a smile on the faces of friends and families. Another key rallying point behind the Pat's Cajun Seafood & Steaks mantra revolves around leaving its patrons contended with bellies full of the flavors that have come to define Louisiana's unique southern cuisine.

Straight out of the mist and mosquitoes that bind the Atchafalaya Basin's waters, the Guidry family is certified Cajun, through and through, and their recently operational Pat's location of Jefferson Hwy is striving to inject itself into the competition-rich seafood restaurant battle that has been waged in the Capital City for years.
The Guidry family sold their restaurant and associated dance hall to Pat and Anges Huval, and the Huval's took up the personal banner and rallying cry of those chefs and foodies who want to continue to push traditional Cajun fare to new audiences.
Steeped in family secrets that have been handed down through the generations, the Pat's features a menu packed with homestyle dishes and down home cooking. Ubiquitous checkered table clothes and a fireplace that dominates the center of the eatery's main room coalesce to make the place feel akin to the slightly weather Cajun shack down on the bayou you never had. To put the atmosphere over the top, the restaurant even features live Cajun French music on weekends, so get out of those dancing shoes and go easy on the cream-sauce based pastas until after you've gotten in a few rounds on the Fais do-do dance floor.
Pat's is located at 8200 Jefferson Hwy in Baton Rouge. Reach their friendly staff by calling (225) 218-6137 or visit their website. To learn more about the delightful cajun ettouffee recipe, check out the related video above. AIEE!!!
