Fresh asparagus and a white wine lemon butter sauce create the finishing touches for this seafood dish

The menu might be simple and short at 1895 Cajun Cuisine & Pub, but don't expect this to mean you won't be satisfied. 1895's dishes are crafted with careful consideration, and the end result is dazzling dishes like today's dish of the day.

1895's Snapper with fried oysters

Today we are featuring the snapper that is topped with saffron and fried oysters - after one bite, it will all melt in your mouth. A finishing touch of a white wine lemon butter sauce and crisp, fresh asparagus will have you licking your lips to savor it all down to the last bite.

Double your pleasure with the soft shell crab that comes served with a crab cake

If snapper doesn't suit your tastes, try the soft shell crab. Delight in the lightly battered soft shell crab and the crab cake served on the side. - a brown butter hollandaise sauce brings a nutty flavor perfect for dipping the crab duo.

To sweeten the deal, mention Eat Lafayette and get half-price white chocolate bread pudding with the purchase of an entrée.
