Come hungry and you will leave stuffed. The chargrilled oysters were yummy as were the Craw Puppies. I had the Soft Shell Crab Po-Boy and while the Soft Shell Crab was very good, I wouldn’t recommend this as a sandwich.

I really enjoyed their chargrilled oysters they are served hot and with a great butter Parmesan sauce. I had a serving of their fried oysters and they had a very light breading very delicious. The seafood scampi was also delicious.

My family visited during our recent vacation. We actually visited twice! The broiled oysters were so good we had to return for a second visit. Save a little room for dessert ... the bread pudding is the best I've ever had!

Great fried seafood. only detraction is gumbo - too much rice and not enough gumbo. Friendly staff and nice ambiance.

I don't think there is a kids menu, but they do have a grilled chicken plate and hamburger steak but these are adult size portions.
