Hidden treasure

Took friends out to dinner while visiting Eglin AFB. They recommended this little gem. It is tucked away just off the main road. Food was excellent. I had shrimp and grits, a favorite of mine. It was excellent. We really enjoyed our dinner. Price was very reasonable too!

Went with a pretty good sized group, the food was amazing! I tasted plenty of other options that were just as yummy as mine! The inside is definitely bright and jazzy

This is a nice place to go for a New Orleans flavor. They have a nice beans and rice and gumbo mixture. I really enjoy the chicken and banana salad! It may sound strange, but trust me it is yummy!

My friends and I meet there for lunch to celebrate Birthdays. Service is very good and they give military discounts. Their Grilled banana spinach salad is very good!

This is a small place with a restaurant and a completely separate bar. You might not know the bar exists unless you looked for it. I go here regularly and they have consistently good service and good food. I enjoy the shrimp po boy, the fish po boy, the jambalaya pasta, and the red beans and rice. They make an... More

I have found the lunch hour is better than the dinner hours but I do not know the reason. Maybe it is because the staff is manning both the restaurant and bar during the dinner hours? The food is good to great depending on what you order and the prices are good.

A co-worker introduced me to this place and I was delighted with the basic ambiance to the place and stellar service at such a decent price.
