Good food and a great waitress. Wonderful and lively band and all tables are outside. Great drinks. All of their daiquiris are made with ice cream. It’s a great people watching location as well

The live band is really good and staff very friendly. The food is only ok, but the music and staff make up for it.

Outdoor seating in the French Market. Great for people watching. They also had live music and the best bloody mary ever with pickled green beans and spice. They also serve local cuisine including a very good gumbo, alligator and crawfish.

The highlights of our visit were the gator sausage and our lovely server Michael. Service was surprising fast considering they were catering for a huge group when we arrived and the food was great
