Very good, the house salad dressing is very good, it is sweet. The crab / crawfish dip on the appetizer was great. I ate the ponchetrain for my main course. Server was extremely attentive. Casual atmosphere. They also serve alcoholic beverages.

Tuesday is half priced oyster day. Not sure of any specials on Sunday night, but they do have a wonderful Sunday Brunch.
