We stopped by the popular biergarten for dinner and we’ll definitely be back soon for more of their Cajun specialties. You won’t find a better seafood gumbo anywhere! The flavorful stew is perfectly seasoned, made with fresh shrimp and Alaskan snow crab. Other authentic dishes include shrimp and grits, NoLa crawfish boil, and Cajun salmon jambalaya with blackened salmon fillet over a seafood jambalaya. It’s hard to pick a favorite among these dishes, so don’t even try. Gather a group and share!

A fan favorite, the Po’ Boy, comes in a number of tempting varieties on thick, crusty rolls that include shrimp or a French dip. Our favorite is the Rawlins Po’ Boy. This traditional submarine sandwich is served with remoulade sauce, lettuce, and tomatoes, accompanied by sweet potato fries.

Beignets for dessert, of course! They are just as good as the square French donuts at Café
du Monde in NOLA. Zeppelin Hall’s beignets are light and fluffy, topped with Nutella and a dash of powdered sugar.


Guests will appreciate the price points as well. Generous portions of beautifully presented dishes are between $10 and $20. Bring your appetite and indulge in Cajun fare and drinks, even before Fat Tuesday. The festivities are ready and waiting for you at Zeppelin Hall!
