Needed to find some Cajun food for a coworker from Wyoming and this place was recommended. Great choice. Offered fried foods, boiled crawfish, boudin and gumbo. A little bit of everything. Fried frog legs and fried catfish was the best I have had in quite some time. Gumbo was only mediocre but everything else made up for it. Make sure... More

This was one of the best all you can eat seafood buffets. For $23 it included Cajun style steamed blue crabs (medium sized) and boiled crawfish, several varieties of shrimp, fried frog legs, catfish and more. Friendly staff. This place rates an A+.

One of my "dining buddies" decided to try the seafood buffet at this restaurant. 4:50 p.m., there was a long line in the little foyer area. It is a very popular restaurant. The line was moved into the restaurant very quickly once the doors opened at 5 o'clock. We were seated promptly. I found the staff terse but polite. I... More

The food is seasoned perfectly. The lunch buffet price is lower than the evening price, but in the evenings, you get either boiled crabs or boiled crawfish on the buffet. You HAVE TO TRY the seafood gumbo, which is awesome! So many other dishes to eat on the buffet. You will not leave hungry, in fact you might eat too... More

We brought over 50 adult seniors here for lunch. We didn't eat the buffet but had prearranged items selected to order from off their menu. The food was better than average and there was an adequate amount served on each plate. The wait staff was excellent and worked hard to get everyone served as quickly as possible. We had prearranged... More
