This place is small, loud and hot. The live music is a nice touch as most venues don't offer live music anymore. The place is small and tight and the temperature upstairs is quite warm. Service was acceptable. Overall reasonably good experience.

We've been gone traveling from our home base in Florida for a year now and we've really been missing Southern Food. Both of us have spent a lot of time in and around New Orleans over our careers so we know good, authentic Cajun foods...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
