Hostess, didn't seat us where we requested. Waiter was almost offensive. Food was acceptable, but not at all good. No complaints about the beer.

We ordered the fried alligator and fried green tomatoes. Excellent! The sauce on the tomatoes complimented it divinely! The service was great, and a great atmosphere to dine. The restroom was clean too.

This is our go to place for oysters . We usually sit at the bar and find the service excellent. I have noticed the seafood platters look great and piled high. It doesn't matter what time we arrive their always busy.

We had the grilled trout dinner and the shrimp & grits and both were very good. If a little crowed inside because the tables are so close together but the food was really good.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
