We were having New Orleans withdrawal. Found this place online and the menu looked superb. Fantastic food and atmosphere and service. Can't wait to come again. Loved it. Closest thing to being in New Orleans but still being in San Antonio!

We had been hearing about this place for a while. Because it is not close to our home, we had not tried it. Coming back from a doctor's appointment, we had an opportunity to stop. The space is very well thought-out. There is a foyer,...More

The food was actually pretty good! Full of flavor and reasonable portions. I had read raves about the bread pudding and have to say that it was good but by no means the best. All that said, I'm not sure what was going on with...More

Went with husband on Saturday afternoon. Had heard positive things about restaurant. Ordered shrimp plate, husband ordered catfish & shrimp. Both plates very bland as far as taste goes. The breading on shrimp fell off, tasted like it was breaded in flour. Disappointment! Positive note:...More
