The food is down home cooking and seafood gumbo is to die for. The decor is awesome and a great conversation starter. Will go back

I liked the set up inside. The food however was mediocre. I had the roast beef sandwich, alone it is a decent size filling sandwich. However the flavor gets boring after a few bites. I guess I should have tried to find a side to go with it...

As long time visitors we had tried J. Michaels in their old location several years ago and found it pretty lackluster. However as we have been spending several weeks here over the holidays, several of our regular places were closed...which has allowed us to try some additional places. We have eaten there over five times in three weeks and found... More

It was about a third the size as in the past and had leafy iceburg lettuce instead of romaine. My buddy ordered the seafood combo. Everything was way over cooked and the oysters tough. The salad...

When in on a gray rainy Sunday. Wife had the Fish & Chips with 5 pieces of fish and it was good (I had two of the pieces she couldn't eat). I had the snow crab and it was good. Super friendly staff, attentive without being overly bearing. I will go back!

one of the best local seafood restaurants in the county. A must to stop by and order the famous red beans and rice. Super service and great prices. Ask for Rachel for the best service, LOVED her.

This has a very local and slightly divey feel. Very relaxed atmosphere. I had great service both times I went. Very friendly and happy servers. Beers were ice cold and the oysters were fantastic!! I would highly suggest if you're in the mood for oysters and beer at a affordable price. I had a great time and will definitely go... More
