If you don't know where to go for dinner tomorrow and you love Cajun food, please head out to the Arboretum in south Charlotte, NC. The service is excellent, the total layback and ambiance makes you travel to New Orleans in seconds.

Don't let the location scare you away. At first when we stopped outside the restaurant we were not so sure if we wanted to wait. There was a piece of paper and a pen by the door with a sign asking us to write down our name and the number of people in our party, and we understood that it was the "wait list".

Soon enough we noticed people being called and crossed off the list, so it must be a good sign if people were waiting that long for service. After about 30 minutes wait our turn came and we understood what was the restaurant about.

We ordered as starter the BBQ Shrimp and Grits and it was just to die for. As entreé, Chris went for Crawfish Étouffée while I got Blackened Mahi, seared blackened with housemade horseradish sauce, sides of Smothered Cabbage. It was all delicious and in good size portions, to not let anyone down.

For Sophia we didn't go for the kids menu, we ordered sides of Red Beans and Rice and Fried Catfish, the rice and beans were a bit too spice for here, but she absolutely loved the fried catfish.

To finish the night we had fresh baked cobbler peach pie coming straight out of the oven to our table. Can't beat it.
