I eat here at least once every other week and I enjoy everything on the menu. The red beans ,sausage and rice, the crab cakes and jambalya are all outstanding. Two locations and very reasonable.

Food overall is one of the best places in Madison if your right by the stadium or on the northside. Service usually sucks, the person working is not very nice, but I could usually forgive because the food is worth it.

We love spicy cajun and have always meant to try this place in our hometown. We decided to try the fried catfish and shrimp creole. The catfish batter was not too heavy and had good flavor and wasn't dry. The dirty rice accompanying it was...More

Authentic Cajun fare available locally. Excellent stuff all over the menu - I love the various Po Boy sandwiches and Thursday's special, "cajun cream." Folks who like the spicy will love the jambalaya. Creole for real. Cornbread. Real deal stuff.
