This place has got it all- great food, friendly and fast service, people watching, and the biggest rooster you ever saw in your life! Three of us stopped in for lunch recently and although there was a wait we were seated in no time at all. The iced tea was fresh-brewed and delicious. One in our... read more

Was recommended by a local. Good food at decent price. A busy bar. Arrive early unless you want a long wait. Had Mardi Gras beads hanging on a wall for the kids to take

Stopped here for lunch recently. Food was wonderful and the service excellent! Waitress was prompt and efficient, stopping by frequently to see if we needed anything or refills. I had the fish sandwich which was huge and very tasty! My husband had the shrimp and bacon club, which was chock full of shrimp and he loved it! Highly recommend this... More

We've eaten here before and never disappointed. always try different things and feel free to share. expect to have leftovers. very generous portions. Large place so even when it's busy, there isnt a very long wait. And considering where they are located, it's simple to put your name on the list, do a little shopping nearby, and have dinner. Very... More

Fun place on Duval. Food portions are huge and appetizing. Manager very sociable and was visible coming around to tables asking if everything was OK. Our waitress, Jennifer, so efficient and pleasant. Despite being very crowded she was at our table within a minute of being seated. This restaurant is very well run. There was a monstrous rooster walking around... More

Fun atmosphere, good food and service! We had salads, big and satisfying but lots of other things on the menu. Large place and it was packed but only had to wait 10 minutes for a table.

By chance we stopped at Caroline's One in our party had a food allergy and asked if the Shrimp lettuce wrap could be made without that ingredient. You would think Prince Williams had asked. Robert was suddenly at the table with a thick book of recipes and started talking to us. He could and would make the meal requested and... More
