It was nice to walk to from Harrah's. Nice atmosphere. Great food! Our server, Brandon, was very attentive. We had the shrimp basket and it was more than enough food and very tasty.More

I had the grilled oysters followed by the Crawfish Alfredo and it was outstanding...I would definitely go back for that again. The only reason for the 4 stars is that there were a few people in our group who weren’t thrilled with their PoBoy sandwiches.More
