Landry's in New Iberia, La.?

I'll be in NOLA later this year and was thinking about a side trip to the New Iberia area - I normally don't like buffet restaurants but I loved Alex Patout's restaurant when it was in the FQ - anybody have any opinions about Landry's?

      Landry's in New Iberia is not the chain Landry's.

          I made the same mistake, but the website for the New Iberia Landry's makes it clear that there's no connection.

    2. I haven't eaten there but finally got word from friends in N.I. It is worth going to for the experience/music, but not for the food. The food is local Cajun but not exceptional local Cajun.

      1. Thanks everyone who responded so far - since I'm not travelling until September I'll have time to gather more opinions.

          We ate there a couple of months ago. Limited selection but everything was good. The chef comes out to the dining room every so often to chat with the diners and answer their questions about the food and its preparation. My wife still talks about the fried corn on the cob. If you will be in the area for breakfast, we highly recommend Victor's Cafeteria. Both places combine really tasty food with the "Cajun experience".
