Do you like cajun spices? Fresh oyster, crawfish, jumbo shrimp, lobster by the pound delivered to your table in funny bags swimming in the best cajun sauce ever? Yes, this place has it all, and you will pay probably half of what you ever paid in the past. We only spent 2 days in the area, and yet we dined... More

Been here a number of times with the family we all enjoy the place and their customer service. The shrimp and crawfish are the best overall.

The food was tasty, but I would have appreciated more options, other than deep fried and carbs, for sides. The sauce has a quite a kick. I found medium very spicy... More

Get ready for a messy experience! Butcher Paper on the tables and plastic bibs are the starting point. The crab, shrimp, and crayfish / sausage are served in polyethylene bags carried to the table in a pail. Getting at the meat is part of the fun, and a working knowledge of invertebrate anatomy is helpful especially when searching for the... More
