Disappointed they were not open per their own scheduled hours. Stopped by at 11:30 and they were not open. Hours today were 11am-11pm.

Little restaurant with mostly counter space seems somewhat overwhelmed by customers at times. Seafood corn chowder was adequate, but topping of soggy oyster crackers detracted. Interesting to be able to see many of the signature creole dishes prepared wok-style behind the counter.

The food was wonderful as was the service. The only mistake was them forgetting my water. I would not hesitate coming here again or recommending it to another. The reasons it doesn't get a five is because of their lack of seating and smell of...More
