Nothing more to say than outstanding! Jambalaya and red beans and rice—great! Fried shrimp and garlic Parmesan fries—outstanding. Even though the gumbo had kind of a burnt taste, we were able to send it back for more jambalaya! Great beer selection also.

Hot spot in the summer for great patio bar, live music and fun crowds. The food is of a Cajun flair and is always delicious. Pro tip: this location can be VERY crowded if the Cardinals are playing a home game. Arrive very early;)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.

I think they are at any time of day, however I agree at night it's probably pretty rowdy.
