Good food and friendly service

The waitress was great and the blackened shrimp basket with fries was very good. I had a bloody mary as well that had an enjoyable spicy bite. Don't forget to try the pork rinds! They are hot and fresh.

Seated quickly but it went downhill from there. No utensils or napkins, apps came after the entrees, forgot the salads, wait staff generally seemed overwhelmed. We make a point of putting the app order in first before they take our meal order but it didn't help. Had to eat the oysters fast so my entrée would not get cold. Had... More

This place has authentic Cajun food and at a very good price. The service is fantastic and has a family atmosphere.

Great little family dinning! We only stopped here once for a snack and a beer, but will for sure go back on our next visit. We had the famous shrimp called who dat shrimp (I think) but they were awesome and people have told us that they have awesome grilled oysters!

I got the seafood boil, the wife got a fried oyster basket. The basket her order was served in was very small with the oysters piled up on the fries. She said she had to finish the oysters just to get to the fries. Some of the oysters were good, some were not so good. She was not impressed. My... More

Excellent food with very personable staff. We happened upon this restaurant after attempting to eat at another establishment and we are so glad we did! We will recommend to others and go back again and again. It really is a tavern so don't go there looking for a fancy place to eat. However, you can beat the oysters. I had... More

We stumbled upon this place and WOW! What a treat! The food was amazing and the atmosphere was fun and festive! We will return any time we are in the area. Our entire party loved their meal and have recommended this place to everyone we know visiting the area. Well worth any wait there is.

We went because some locals told us it was a fantastic place. The food was awesome, our server was not. We knew what we wanted when we sat down. Ordered our drinks and appetizer, then our food. The food came out first, we asked about the appetizer, she left. She finally came back and we were halfway done with our... More

The atmosphere is "New Orleans" tacky. Menu is interesting but pricey for what it is. Dishes are very Cajun and I liked that. I had the fish "basket". It was served on a plate looking nothing like a basket. I am still pondering why they called it a "basket". My husband had the Jambalaya which he pronounced good but also... More

Had dinner for two. Food and service was okay. Live music was pretty good. I didn't care for this restaurant compared to the other ones we went to.
