Named affectionately after executive chef Drake Leonards’ South Louisiana hometown, Eunice offers a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood.

The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and foodways of the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the dining experience inside at the bar, at a table along the floor to ceiling windows, or outside on our patio.

We offer happy hour every day from 3 pm to 6 pm including 75 cent oysters, half off snacks, beer, specialty cocktails, and house wines by the glass.

    First time I’ve been “ just satisfied “ at Eunice’s. The food was very good as usual but it took forever for our entrees to arrive and the noise level was high. If you would like a quieter ambiance and quicker service, don’t go at peak hour on Sunday.

    Service was very slow and we told her two different times we were ready to order and she would immediately walk away. It wasn’t that loud and two different people tried so it was an accent issue. She just wasn’t paying attention.

    My daughter and I were in town touring colleges. We wanted something light and fresh for lunch and found Eunice on open table. The service was impeccable. The server was attentive and kind. The oysters were divine! We enjoyed our lite fare which consisted of Brussel sprouts, corn bread and gumbo. We would definitely go back!

    Eunice was one of our favorite go to dinner places. It had seemed to be slipping the last couple of times (other than the servers which were great) but this time it was just disappointing. It was almost 10 minutes before our waiter talked to us. And we were placed in the back room (never have I been since it opened) that was so loud we could not hear each other. I think it is Eunice’s Siberia. (If you go, refuse to sit there.). Shrimp Dan Dan was mushy and shrimp and grits was excessively salty. Even my teenagers - who never notice anything - said the room and the service was not good.

    Fine dining with a cajun-inspired flair. Eunice is impressive in atmosphere, service, presentation, and hospitality. Classic cajun dishes are reimagined and taken in fantastic new directions. The etouffee has an incredible depth of flavor. I highly recommend it.

    Have always been a big fan of Eunice and have encouraged others to go. It had been several months and this lunch was a belated birthday celebration for my wife and her brother, an executive chef, joined us. They were definitely understaffed and the usual great service was lacking. Their famous cornbread was overdone and the butter was cold and not spreadable. Poor attention to our table and we had to ask for drink refills. The lunch menu was limited and prices had increased substantially. I am hoping this was an off day as this has always been a favorite place. I will return.

    I made reservations for my family to celebrate my birthday. Valet was easy, and Hostess was welcoming. We were seated immediately in a booth to help contain the toddler we brought with us. They were accommodating with Toddler as well with kids menu & colors. Complimentary champagne was brought to celebrate along with our cocktails ordered. The server, Nathan, was amazing! He offered great suggestions and was very attentive throughout the meal. They brought the toddlers meal with the appetizer (perfect timing). We were also provided with a complimentary bread pudding (in addition to the chocolate cake we ordered). They were both delicious - but bread pudding was over the top! The blinds were closed to block setting Sun & heat from the floor to ceiling windows. Once the Sun set, they opened the blinds and the view of the beautiful large oak trees was stunning! Next time I will get a sitter and make my reservations for closer to sunset so we can enjoy that view for the entire dinner! This is my new FAVORITE Cajun / seafood restaurant.

    We were a little early but were politely seated, which was wonderful since the bar area was packed. We ordered a round of drinks then the seafood tower to share along with cornbread and Cajun Duck Poppers. I was a little disappointed at the 4 shrimp and 4 oysters plus some ahi tuna salad and a fish mousse - I expected more for the price for $65. Having said that, the entrees were superb - Day Boat Tuna, seared and served over spinach, Amberjack Filet perfectly cooked, moist and delicious and the Ribeye. I enjoyed the Gumbo with a rich dark roux. We enjoyed a beautiful Nicholas Jay Pinot Noir (2017) and shared a Bread pudding for dessert. Lots of entrée sharing kept the conversation lively.

    The food at Eunice is consistently delicious and the service at our table was wonderful. The bartender did not seem as interested in assisting us while we were waiting for our table, which was surpriing based on prior experiences. The meal and our waiter made up for the initial start to the evening.
