A nice restaurant with a bar and grill feel. We chose to eat inside even though there is rooftop dining available. The rooftop dining has a limited menu and we preferred items that were not included. Check the website for the rooftop menu if dining in the warm season. The food was delicious and served quickly. The wait staff was... More

I have been here a few times with friends and on date nights with my wife. The food is alright. The price is o.k. for the area. They do sometimes get overwhelmed with the crowds and the customer service suffers from it. The rooftop is great for evening dining.

We were looking forward to a little taste of New Orleans, but unfortunately, were disappointed. This is a large restaurant (with a rooftop area) decorated with some N'awlins touches. Servers and greeters were personable, attentive and professional. The Bourbon Chopped Salad was extremely plentiful and more than enough for two people. The Boo Coo balls with remoulade dipping sauce were... More

Rather large venue and well decorated. Valet parking is available. Pleasant atmosphere and staff. Basket of different bread/biscuits served as an appetizer while you wait. Had the Braised Beef Short Ribs which were very tender as I enjoy them but the beans & rice were nothing like genuine Cajun rice. Have had better rice from Popeye's. I will admit that... More

Went here on a date night with the hubby, I had the gumbo soup which was just good. The hubby had the ribs and kept complaining that they were tasteless. The drinks were average but what we enjoyed was the service and decor.... Very nice designs... Really feels like you're in New Orleans... The waiter was very attentive and helpful....... More

We sat upstairs in the roof top lounge area. Staff, Food, Drinks were all great! Had a very nice time!!! Only problem was the sun... some tables had umbrellas, but they weren't adjustable. Some of our table was in the sun and were getting sunburn others were comfortable and in the shade. I suggest getting better coverage for your customers...the... More
