We stop here whenever we are in LaCrosse. We enjoy the food and beverage options. This time the rice was a bit dry, but we'll still stop back and just try something else on the menu.

We are not too familiar with Cajun food so decided to try and sure glad we did. The food and service were amazing. Our waitress went above and beyond. The food was so interesting and tasty - we would definitely come back.

They had a mix of Cajun inspired & Jamaican menu items. Also pasta on the menu. I had a Poboy...not familar with their recipe for it, but it was tasty. The place was just not my cup of tea!

Interesting restaurant with what appeared to be lots of locals. Definitely a New Orleans flair with a wide selection on the menu. We had to wait (about 20 minutes) and we strolled around LaCrosse while we waited for the buzzer to go off. Service was...More

I don't know. It's Cajun food and I've never eaten anything here that isn't good and spicy. I'm sure if you look at their on-line menu you can get a good idea from there (I'd give you the link but TripAdvisor doesn't allow... More
