Food, Service was great waitress was great at making sure we receive the dishes that we wanted even though the item was no longer on the menu

Oh, goodness, my tastebuds thought they died and went to heaven! The zesty, but not over-powering, flavor of the minced-olive salsa, with the perfectly-crispy but still soft bun, and the flaky fish- my sandwich was delightful. I go back as often as I can!

Better Cajun food than I've had in New Orleans. Great ambiance! Shrimp PoBoy had lots of shrimp. Fried green tomatoes were tasty. Desserts are worth stuffing yourself; Cherry Pecan Bread Pudding and Blackberry Cobbler were fabulous.

We had a group of 26 which they accommodated nicely at 2 tables. The waitstaff provided drinks, took orders, and the food came out rather quickly. We ate the bronze shrimp alfredo, which was absolutely delicious. Large enough portion for 2 with a Au Poivre...More
