I was hoping for better Vibe being on Riverfront but there is construction going on all around this place! However the food was better than i hoped considering i only went based on a groupon i had for the place. VOODOO Juice is a fun drink; my son loved the crab legs!!

Visited the restaurant as we wanted authentic shellfish Cajun style. Upon arrival we were seated only to wait for 10 mins before we were waited on. Ordered two beers and a shellfish dinner - the snow crab was excellent as were the prawns. The waiter service during the meal was good and attentive however, when we paid the bill, which came to a little over $70, I passed over $80 and had to wait to receive the change - felt like a tactical move on their part. The change of course, came back in $1 bills (hint for a tip) so I decided to leave a $5 tip. I passed this to the waiter who looked at me in disgust stating that they are not paid much and relied on the tips. In the end I passed over $10, which was “more like it” according to the waiter in the yellow shirt. What I fool.....

Overall, not a great experience and we will not be returning. Food was good but the expectation from the staff a little overwhelming. Avoid.

Waited for 30 minutes, didn’t even get asked what we wanted to DRINK! After complaining they ignored

The shrimp platter is very greasy and not too good. They have a live band that plays and they are good but very very loud. The best thing is the view of the river, that's it!

The service was slow after we were seated. Not very busy. The alligator bites tasted like fried andouille sausage. There was plenty of food but probably won’t return.
