This restaurant came from New Orleans and they have done a fine job, keeping up a tradition. Dinner was excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection on a 500 degree plate. Medium was a little pink as it is supposed to be. Baked potato, broccoli, sweet potato casserole all well done. Stuffed chicken breast very tasty.

Went to the happy hour 5-7 and was totally impressed with the service and food. Have a lot of apps at half price and drinks about a third off. Sat at the outside bar and was a very nice atmosphere . Went on Wednesday and they had a live band that was very good.

All five members of the party were highly impressed with the service and meal. We all had something different and amazed at the quality of the meat and sides. We all would highly recommend going.

It is perfect for a resort area. They have the same menu, except they also offer a few more seafood options. We always get the same... More

Well above average. The food is very good, as is the service. I also appreciate the fact that they're supportive of local children's charities. Not many chain restaurants invest as much in the local community. I recommend

Husband and I walked over from the Home2 a week after Valentine's Day to celebrate the holiday. Was a slow Sunday night, the service was a tad slow as well, which is why the 4 star rating. Food was great, servers professional. Over all, a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Well, our dinner was nothing short of amazing.. filet and lobster, lobster Mac and cheese wine and cocktails.. all super tasty. But... our waitress was..awkward? She just made us both feel really uncomfortable, so much so that we wanted to get up and leave. Of course we didn't.. and the rest of the wait staff was great. Not really sure... More
