This establishment is very clean. The staff is friendly and the servers make sure to refill drinks and pick up used plates. The food is good.

The boubon street chicken is why I go here. Nice salad bar, nice variety. If the people eating there had better manners and controlled their kids, I would probably eat there a little more often.

I found a flat piece of clear plastic in the Bourbon Chicken. I showed it to the manager who said she was going to pull it. There didn't appear to be any concern for the health implications of serving plastic in food.
