Everything here is good! Crawfish, Boudin Balls, Crawfish Pistolettes, Fried Fish, Fried Shrimp, but our favorite is the House Potato which is loaded and includes fried shrimp and shrimp etouffee. Our favorite place for seafood.

I cannot say enough about how great this place is. Everything I've ever had here (and I've had a ton of things) is absolutely delicious. The service is great, the people friendly and helpful. The prices are a little steeper than most around the area,...More
