Nice restaurant. We had burgers and jambalaya. Both were very tasty. For dessert we had banana cream pie which was awesome. Our waitress was outstanding. Only complaint was hostess originally put us at a table that was so small it looked like a kids table.

Food is generally very tasty and they have some wonderful beers. Love the fried asparagus appetizer, the mahi mahi tacos and the hamburger.
