Since 1985, this classic Cajun bistro has been serving up historic cuisine while housed inside of a hundred year old manse in the middle of the Elizabeth neighborhood. Two patios, one on the first floor and one on the rooftop, highlight the quirky house, which also has two distinct dining rooms. The Queen hosts live music 7 nights a week upstairs, while downstairs is reserved for a quieter, more intimate dining experience. Most known in the Charlotte area for their fresh seafood, they also offer classic dishes like Etouffée and Gumbo, often with your choice of protein. For a hot night out, both in terms of food and jazz, Cajun Queen is the place.
