Each visit is a pleasure. The best Cajun music and atmosphere. Each item on the menu is most excellent. The boiled crawfish are the best I've ever had.

I have only been there during Mardi Gras. There is a long waiting line. Get there early to reserve a place. You order food and then the fun begins. They have an adequate Cajun band with a little dance floor but not many are dancing....More

This place is 42+ miles from my house. We drive here to eat boiled crawfish several times during the season. Been eating here for 20 years or so. Cajun music on the weekend with dance floor. Small airstrip for planes and helicopters from Ft. Polk.

We made reservations but it wasn't busy for being a Friday evening (we got there a bit late). We had the boiled and BBQ blue crabs. Delicious! Also a seafood platter - very good, too. Enjoyed the band. I would definitely go again!
