Great surprise

I am a huge fan of New Orleans food. And to find something local like in Astoria was great. We went here based on the menu - not any reviews or ratings just the menu. SCORE!!!!!!!! The restaurant is airy and divy looking. The staff is friendly and patient. Their menu is large and there is a lot to... read more

I walked in at 5pm right as the doors opened and was waiting to meet my best friend to celebrate my birthday early. The staff was so friendly and I was immediately greeted by our waitress, Annie. We laughed about our Disney cast member days and I was made to feel welcome while I waited. What a wonderful beautifully decorated... More

After we returned from a few days in New Orleans a couple of months ago, we were missing charbroiled oysters, po boys etc., so I searched online for a NY restaurant with these delicacies. Found Sugar Freak and decided we had to give it a try. It didn't disappoint. Very funky decor, pleasant and helpful wait staff, extensive menu and... More

I liked this restaurant because there aren't many in Astoria. The gumbo was really good. Catfish po boy was the right choice!

I was so excited for this place. Their menu made me dream and drool. What exciting things they have listed. Unfortunately execution didnt pan out. We started with the popcorn alligator. Which were tiny little pieces of alligator mixed in with bigger pieces of potato chips. I felt a little ripped off by this. The cornbread waffle was pretty dry... More

I met friends for brunch here. Cocktails got high marks- great Pimms Cup, Spicy Bloody Mary, and a perfect Sazerac. Daily specials got our stomachs growling, with a killer crawfish bisque that was absolutely to die for. We binged on fresh blue point oysters, muffalettas, etoufee and jambalaya. I was only sad I didn't have enough room for a plate... More

We have eaten here quite a few times for brunch. The food and drinks are consistently good. The service is warm and friendly. In talking to the owner, we learned that all of the decorations are made from recycled materials. The light fixtures are super cool! Our favorite meal is the fried chicken, which we had tonight. The meal includes... More

Comfort food and ambiance abound here. Enjoy the plethora of bayou tasties: blackened catfish, po'boys, jambalaya, etouffee, waffles (stuffed, or not, with gravy, or not), biscuits (ditto), pecan-vinaigrette-dressed salad, deep fried popcorn okra, served in its own frying basket, mac 'n cheese, served in a person-sized. cast iron frying pan, chicken, served with cinnamon sugar, chili honey (there's that sugar...

The decor, setting and ambience is point on. They make you feel as if you were in a small town Louisiana Diner. The crowd is lively and they have a slurry of cocktails, Drinks and beers on tap to meet any appetite. The menu is southern and serves all the traditional cooking that you would imagine in the South. That... More
