They have a great selection of plates for Cajun foods. We love to go eat here whenever we have sometime to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. It's laid back and you can sit outside or on the porch or upstairs or downstairs it's all wonderful. Definitely a place to try out if your in town!!

From a leisurely summer meal at the outdoor patio to Sunday brunch, this is a great place for a meal - alone or with friends. Traditional American fare with a Louisiana Twist.

4 of us stopped in for some burgers and seafood. The burgers were fine, but both seafood dishes tasted like they were old or spoiled. One was fried oysters and the other was a shrimp dish. We did not eat either and let management know. They may have had old stock that they did not properly care for, or throw... More

I ate there last week with a client and his guest. It is a wonderful place for lunch and the service is always top notch. I always have the gumbo and we each ordered from the menu.....everything is fresh and well prepared. Looking forward to dining there again.

Decided to try the most popular restaurant in town this evening, on the first night of our vacation. Overall we enjoyed the meal very much comma the main courses we're very good, however some of the side dishes lacked the finishing touches that would make them above-average. One example with the cheesy grits we're not very cheesy , if that's... More

Stopped in on a recommendation from our hotel. The location, service, price and food all very good. The shrimp and grits had plenty of shrimp and grits cooked to perfection. The pour is outstanding. Only caution is get the full rack of lamb. My wife ordered half portion and wished she had one more rib. Go early as the place... More

I had heard this was one of the best restaurants in Cookeville and I can see why people say that! The food here is really good and I particularly like the gator bites and seafood dip. We also got hot wings that were cooked perfectly. They have lots of good local brews here and I'm excited to come back and... More
