We visited for happy hour aps. Drinks were inexpensive then and some aps were available at reduced prices. The coconut fried shrimp were outstanding and the black bean cakes were excellent. We didn't care much for the oysters Bienville, which so small as to be nearly nonexistent and didn't taste fresh.

It had little taste. My wife had the Lobster Bisque and a salad which she also found bland. The one who enjoyed the dinner had the scallops... More
