Ragin Cajun in Belmar, NJ

Does anyone know if the Ragin Cajun in Belmar, NJ has a take out menu for large parties? If so, does anyone have any experience?

  1. She used to do some takeout/catering, but I think the restaurant is closed.

    1. I know they are not closed. I tried to call yesterday and got their VM message, hence the post.

      1. They do do large parties regularly. I've been to a few and hosted one myself. Tracey will work with you to design the menu. She can use your kitchen and set up with your stuff if you want or bring everything in herself. Food is always great.

        1. BTW - they are definitely still open. I drive by there on my way home every day.

          1. Had dinner at the Ragin Cajun last night with 4 other couples. The restaurant is located on Highway 35, just south of 11th Avenue in Belmar in a former single family house. You might drive by it a couple of times since it only has a very small (unlit) sign in the front yard. It is next to a convenience store (not sure if it is 7/11 or something else). We were set up in the "back room" due to the size of our party. A singer was performing in the front room. The place is a little funky with a peaceful vibe....very laid was as if you were having a dinner party in your house. The owner took our orders and provided some great conversation.

            I had the Cajun Jumbo Shrimp with rice/beans and was excellent. The "sauce" the shrimps were in was spicy but not overpowering.....the shrimps (5 huge) were cooked to perfection. The beans and rice were very nice and the broccoli was exceptionally tasty.

            Don't think anyone had the same entree as anyone else and many folks took the specials. In general everyone was satisfied with their meal...some more than others. With only a couple of desserts, no appys, 10 entrees, BYOB the bill including tip came to $55 per couple.

            Definately will go back.
