Food and service were wonderful, exactly what we expect when we dine here. They are following Covid protocols so we felt safe to be dining in. Highly recommend for a nice evening out.

I had not been there for a while. The food was certainly not as good as I remember. I would have trouble recommending it at this time.

From the moment we walked in the staff were excellent. Emma was our waitress & is an excellent server. She was patient & gave good suggestions as I couldn't decide between all the good food options. The food was delightful & couldn't have been improved upon. Portion sizes were large so there was no room for desert. Next time! There will definitely be a next time!

Food was good. Portion of the blackened salmon on the special was small, and it was plated on a lunch size plate rather than my companions dinners.

The decor has been updated a bit over the years but the food is still fantastic! The music, the ambiance and the service all combine to make your experience terrific! The Louisiana Jambalaya is always my go-to dinner.

The food is always good in Louisiana Purchase. It is very obvious that they have spaced out the tables more due to Covid-19. They have made their effort to keep the customers and staff safe!

The food was just OK - Swampstick was so overcooked it like chewing a rubber band - Catfish & rice both also overcooked .. served with a side of mushy vegetables. Value not there ..

I just love the po'boys, however, it would be so good if the order could come with "choose your extras" options The food is so good - allow some substitutions. I recognize it is difficult to anticipate what those extras might be, but it may be worth a thought.

First time visit for a birthday - Excellent strawberry margerita (made with real fruit,not syrup!!!). Food delicious, service very attentive but not intrusive. Really wanted the grilled oysters, but they were not available that night. Our other dishes were delicious and plentiful. Recommend!

This is a hidden gem in Edmonton. With all the new housing downtown I expected it to be busier on a Saturday night but it turned out just perfect for a group of friends to hang out at.

This was my first visit to Louisiana Purchase. I looked forward to sampling the menu, and I was not disappointed. I began with a Delta Lady cocktail, recommended by our server, and it was delicious. My companion and I had the alligator kabob for an appetizer. Neither of us had tasted alligator and wow. It was cooked perfectly, flavoured perfect, and the bed of spicy bean salsa complemented the dish. The entrees were scrumptious, the desert divine. Highly recommended and will definitely be going back for more.

Unfortunately, the food is not as good as it has been in the past. I had jambalaya with creole sauce. It was not very spicy. Other members of our party had pork tenderloin and said it was not very tender.
I have always raved about the food, but not now.
Thank you for the opportunity to review.

just heading to the oilers game, Louisiana is a great spot to have a meal before the game, and they provide free customer parking, for the whole evening, great food, drink, and very friendly staff.
try it we have been dining here for years.

I came here for the first time to have supper with a friend of mine. The food was incredible and our server was personable, attentive, and made us feel right at home. I will definitely be back in the future, and will visit the other location in town as well. Keep up the great work!!

The meal and the ambiance was wonderful. My only complaint was that the fried chicken was not what was expected and the coleslaw was bland.
