It’s got a hipster vibe but we felt very welcome there. Super fresh oysters. You cannot go wrong with anything. The firecracker shrimp was crisp and spicy. It’s legit NOLA with Crystal sauce on the tables. Definitely worth your time and the bite!More

We had a party of eleven and we're sat as soon as we walked in. They do not do reservations, but if you call ahead, they will do preferred seating. Give that a shot before just showing us with that many.
