It's been a little while since we last visited, but I must say the wife and I REALLY enjoy the "Lobster Pot". The food has always been great and the ambiance is commendable.

Our first red flag was the nearly-empty parking lot at 7 pm on a Saturday. Next the nearly-empty restaurant when we walked in. Then the horrible mildew smell in the main dining room as we walked through, like closed-up wet carpet. Thankfully we were seated...More

This is our second year here. We couldn’t wait to eat here again after finding this place accidentally last year. The food is delicious and we love the view. The service is great and we will be back again next year.

Thank you for your response and feedback. Our creme brulee is usually a real favorite of our guests. Recently, we had our oven re-calibrated. I will definitely check to see if it has affected the consistency of the finished creme brullee.

Years ago when Flo was alive, I've heard the food was absolutely wonderful and authentically New Orleans style. Now, it's rather bland, expensive and nothing great. Atmosphere in the restaurant/bar is still good, and service is still good, but the place always has a moldy,...More
