We always seem to eat a late dinner here when we are at the Marriott Renaissance as it is right across the street. We enjoy dining at bars and always do here because of Michelle. You tell her what you like and she gives you ideas and mixes a perfect cocktail. We ordered the Crawfish Chowder which she recommended. It... More

Don't get me wrong, the food is great here. The price for quantity of the food you get, let's just say a little to expensive.

This restaurant was situated just around the corner from the Fort Conde Inn and was recommended by the manager of the inn. We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent.

Yummy, handmade burgers . . . creative salads . . . friendly waitstaff . . . great eatery for tourists but, clearly, a favorite with downtown business people.

Never been disappointed. Fresh menu, great salads, tasty soups all homemade. Want a burger or steak they have it. Bar is outstanding. They have outdoor seating and comfy indoors. Don't miss it if you are downtown😎

We could not get in the restaurant we planned on and happened by the Royal Scam. I strongly recommend visiting especially people visiting from out of town. Our meal was great and the service was exceptional.

We showed up on a Friday night about 520pm. We had a party of 11. Since we didn't have reservations, we were told we could be seated out back on the patio with a huge storm coming in but only if we ate fast. Their first reservation for outside was at 7!
