Our restaurant occupies the oldest commercial building constructed in the historic district of downtown Carencro (1901). The team at Swanky’s is focused on providing a family friendly atmosphere coupled with delicious cajun cooking. We proudly celebrate Louisiana’s culture and heritage.

Don’t let our name fool you, as we try not to take ourselves too seriously! After all, we consider Swanky’s to be the type of cajun restaurant our favorite comedic personas Boudreaux and Thibodeaux would frequent for their “fine dining”

So please stop by and enjoy everything from favorite southern classics (poboys, seafood platters, and stuffed shrimp) to American staples (wings, burgers, BBQ)!


The team at Swanky’s is more than happy to discuss how we can help you with you next event! Whether it’s party trays, catering, private events, school functions, or something else you may have in mind, we will be with you every step of the way in order to provide the best experience for you and your guests. We are also one block away from St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church and would love to provide exceptional dining for your wedding rehearsal party!
