Let me start out by saying, I was hoping to have released this blog post sooner. I feel like we hit the ground running once we returned from our vacation. Thanks for being patient with me as I finish our trip finds. I am continuing sharing more on our visit to Panama City Beach.

Here are some of the ones I’ve done already if you want to catch up here

On our last day in Panama City Beach, we had plans to ride a helicopter and rent a slingshot. Unfortunately, rain literally rained on our fun! SO we had to improvise.

We decided to head out to Ripley’s Believe it or not.

It was a great option for a rainy day. I think everyone had the same idea, because there were a lot of people. We spent a few hours there.

But before heading there we stopped for something to eat.

When we travel, we always try to find at least one Cajun restaurant. This find was a gold mine, Dat Cajun Place.

Dat Cajun Place is a Cajun themed restaurant, with an easy going, welcoming environment serving up delicious cajun eats like Poboys, Gumbo, Seafood, Shrimp and Grits and more.

As we walked in it immediately felt like we had been whisked away to Louisiana. There was all sorts of Sports memorabilia on the walls.

All our favorite sports teams…

The wait staff was so friendly. We asked for a booth and we were seated immediately.

We started with a Louisiana classic,  Boudin Balls. Our kids love Boudin balls. These boudin balls were fried to perfection.

A well seasoned boudin ball with a delicious dipping sauce.

Baby girl ordered the Cajun Chicken Alfredo. This dish was incredible! The pasta was a  well seasoned, creamy pasta dish. So good!

My husband ordered the Shrimp & Lobster Grits. The Shrimp and Lobster grits consisted of Creamy Southern Style Grits made with Tasso and Gouda Cheese topped with sautéed Shrimp, Steamed Lobster Claw and a Brown Cajun Gravy.

Okkkkk. This was one of the best Shrimp and Grits we have ever eaten and we are from Louisiana. My goodness.

I ordered the Cajun Fried Chicken. This Cajun fried chicken dish consisted of Fried Chicken tenders over rice topped with homemade andouille sausage gravy. The chicken was fried perfectly. Seasoned, moist chicken tenders with a flavorful sausage gravy. So good!

The food was so good at this point, we decided to try dessert.

The Key Lime Pie. A Slice of authentic key lime pie that was baked in a graham cracker butter crust and topped with a tangy key lime sauce.

Wow! This dessert was spot on. A delicious key lime pie. Florida is known for their key lime pies. Dat Cajun Place did that with the pie! It was so good. Well balanced flavors not too sour or too sweet. Perfection. Love the drizzle across the top.

Overall Dat Cajun Place was incredible. This spot felt like home for us. There is just something about Louisiana people. We found out that the owners are from Louisiana.

The food, dishes and service was spot on!

This was our favorite restaurant while we were in Panama City Beach. If you visit Panama City Beach, be sure to check out Dat Cajun Place. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
