This was a pleasant surprise. There was a band that was really enjoyable. We didn't eat, but the menu looked good. We sat at the bar and service was very slow. Mostly had to flag someone down to get service.

We wanted to try this place because the menu looked great and drove 15 mines to do....but on this Tuesday night there was a live band in the small interior, and reservations were needed. Too bad.....some Cajun food, fried chicken, specialty burgers.....wish we could have tried it.

Brought family for a casual lunch, and once again were very pleased. The burgers and tilapia dinners were enjoyed by all. The tanglers were once again a real hit. A consistent solid option for a great dining experience in the area.

We eat here 1 to 2 times a month, and have never been disappointed. Great food and friendly servers. Well made burgers, but also a great tilapia sandwich. Definitely don't miss the onion rings, either by themselves or on a burger. Even if you're not a "bar" person, just consider this a great local restaurant.

Very surprising how fresh the gator was. The building is a bit of a dive but look past that because the food is great and large servings. Ask about the specials they are amazing

We ordered shrimp jambalaya, a flatbread pizza and a Cajun burger and beers of course. The food was great and the waitress was attentive. The décor is Cajun/Mardi Gras, and there appears to be a stage in the corner for live music (weekends?). Give it a whirl if you're passing through Peru.

We ate outside, the service was good and the food was great. The staff were all friendly and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
