Horrible service last Friday afternoon. Crawfish were over cooked and unable to peel. When sent back the cook came out and tested them and agreed. The inattentive bartender charged us for them anyway. What a rip off and bad service to boot.

Great nightly music and wonderful cajun food. You can take your time and chill. They don't try to rush you, so enjoy. Try the crab dip.

We went here for a business lunch and the place is just great. Had bbq this time around and wasn't disappointed. I thought the lunch menu was priced right and the food tasted great. The service was great as well. I recommend.

We were going to eat across the street but were enticed over by the promise of Cajun food and music. Best food choice on the whole trip! Even though we probably cramped their style bringing in three younger kiddos everyone was super friendly. Everything we...More
