Swamp soup and hush puppies are so good! Our server, Oam, was great - supper friendly and helpful. Whitefish was very good, big shrimp on the po boy. Very nice on the inside.

Went in for lunch. Mmm. Mmm good. Swamp Soup. I had the gator basket. My wife had the shrimp basket and my father in law had the Reuben sandwich. All were great. Our server, Sasha, was fun. Will be going back.
