Cajun's has a special section for groups, and they also cater as well. Their emphasis is on seafood, so if the majority of your group prefers a land-based meal, this isn't the spot. They do offer one of the best river views in the city. If you go on a weekend, expect service to be slow because Cajun's is also a popular local hangout and is normally packed.

The Loony Bin

The Loony Bin is a comedy club and not a restaurant. It does have a limited menu with typical bar food and an extensive bar, and it's probably not the best choice for Christmas dinner or a business meeting. However, for a bachelor or bachelorette party, it would be a solid choice.
