The old favorite was a nice place for lunch. The service was great. The Bloody Mary's were great. The oysters were so-so and the spinach was just bad.

This is a marvelous, small restaurant. The menu is creole inspired. The flavor profiles are complex but inspired. The menu offerings are wide and include a few that are not sea food inspired. Many of the customers during my visit were long term customers.
