Generally speaking, this is Cajun food. Specifically speaking, it's barely passable as such. Having eaten in NOLA 100's of times, this is not one of those rare finds where you leave thinking "Oh WOW, this tastes just like New Orleans" Nope. It's not bad food...More

I was hoping the jambalaya would be good, but it was not. The gumbo had the same flavor as the jambalaya. Friends that I was with enjoyed the catfish and tuna.

I may not have ordered the most exciting item on the menu which is why I thought it was just ok. Nothing stood out with it, just your average fish and shrimp dish.
