Pass this restaurant twice daily. Went for dinner with wife to give it a try. I ordered grouper, and it tasted like a leftover pork chop. My wife's dinner wasn't much better. Food quality is very poor.

Staff was very friendly. Great family atmosphere. The food was excellent. A must try restaurant. I didn't like oysters before but now I do. The grilled oysters were delicious.

Went with a large group and had fantastic service. The food was great. Had the alligator blackened bites. Could not have been better. It was all family and they let us spend time without kicking us out. Will be back.

The food was great with excellent service from our waitress Coral. We had oysters (grilled, raw, and Rockefeller) that were all delicious. My favorite was grilled. All seafood was amazing! Our group had shrimp, crab, and scallops. Loved it so much! Again we loved our waitress she made our experience a great one.

Erik was our server and recommended some great dishes. I had the Bayou fried platter and it was great. Plenty of food and it was all tasty. Chili lime margaritas are an interesting twist on the drink. We would come back for sure.

Mike was absolutely FANTASTIC! From the very beginning he was super accommodating, he made us feel like he was on our schedule not like we were on his schedule as many places make you feel. I'd recommend it to anyone just because of the fantastic service!

Thank Rebecca Z
