The fried crawfish poboy was delicious and plenty of crawfish and fries. I was not crazy about the seafood gumbo.

The Grilled oysters were delicious and the Shrimp and grits were good. Our waitress was super friendly and very attentive. Our food was at our table in a very reasonable time.

Very casual family restaurant with friendly service. The prices are reasonable. Try the gumbo! The seafood etouffee was delicious. Can't wait to go back and try the shrimp boil, it looked great!

Reasonable prices, significant-sized portions, pleasant waitstaff (Tellie took good care of us). The catfish was great, as were the onion rings, and there are non-seafood options as well. Definitely go here.

OK, big surprise, I got the boiled shrimp. They were pretty tasty; I could of used a tad bit more spice, but it was still good eating. Our waitress was super friendly and when we had to send our frys back because they were cold, she didn't hesitate and she didn't lose her smile.

We were given the name of this restaurant at our hotel and boy was it a great suggestion ! I had the Shrimp and Crab salad and it was delicious. Our server was excellent but the restaurant is very noisy. Overall, would definitely visit again if in the area. I thought the prices were very good as well.
