But this place changed my mind. The food was fresh, amazing and original. Lots of traditional and not so traditional foods. This is a hidden gem that a few friends turned me on to. The best deal is lunch and the early bird dinner. I'll be back the next time I'm in New Orleans. YUMMY

Few buffets have the reputation for consistently delicious home-cooked food like this longtime establishment. The baked or fried fish is as good as or better than any of the seafood specialty restaurants around. The smothered cabbage is bar none the best even compared to some of the local soul food establishments. The fried chicken is exceptional as well. All the... More

Traditional Cajun food to boot. Outstanding wait staff that bent over backwards to please. Parking is not a problem as it's located in a shopping area.

We stopped in for dinner and what I thought would be Louisiana cuisine. I was right and wrong. It was the most delicious home cooked food to ever be offered at a restaurant. Also was some "Louisiana" dishes. Fine, fine cooking. I HIGHLY recommend eating here. The staff was friendly and efficient with your needs. I will be a repeat... More

This is a buffet style restaurant and the food was great. My other half went back 4 times just for the red beans. I am gluten free and still found quite a bit I could eat. The fish in butter was very good. I would recommend going for lunch or dinner.

We stayed at nearby Crowne Pointe Hotel, and wanted authentic Louisiana food. Just "happened" on this restaurant on our way back to the hotel from WalMart. The price is affordable, and the buffet food is Louisiana at its finest. Great selection! This is a small restaurant, so be sure and go either just before or after the crowds.

The people were unfriendly. The food was scarce and not good at all. The chicken even though baked was over cooked. I sat down got one round of food and didn't even finish. I just left. Ihave given this place three or four try's. No more. I work to hard fro my money to waste it there any more.
