Don't know what it's like on other days but this day it was full of patrons having a good time to live music and great food and cheap drinks. Happy hour is 3-6pm so take... read more

Definitely a lighten up atmosphere from the second you walk through the door until you leave. The volume could tone down a little bit though, could hardly hear anyone. Pros: Shrimp good Chargrilled whiskey oysters Cons: Volume too loud 👂🏻

This is one dive but in a good way....happened to go on Wednesday and Karaoke. It was so much fun...sat at the bar and best place in the house. Gumbo was good....oysters on the half shell (from Louisiana) were cold, small and delicious. Burger was good but the fries...get them cajun spiced (not hot but seasoned to perfection) Cold beer...

Who dat shrimp is the reason to go here. I also ordered the Muffalata They grill it with garlic butter which for me kills the sandwich. I'm not a fan of garlic, but if you do give it a try. Draft beer could be a little colder, Next visit I'm just getting the Whose da shrimp. It's worth the trip.

We ate here because of the reviews we had read. The atmosphere is a bar venue rather than a cafe. It is always busy when we drive by. I ordered a glass of wine--not bad for the house wine and the crab cakes--rather tasteless but came with a side (I chose cheese grits, also not a lot of flavor) hush... More

It's a decent little place to eat lunch/dinner. The only complaint (and the only reason this place doesn't have a 5 star rating from me) is the speed of service. The waiter we had only checked on us once before the food got there and once after. We had to ask another waitress to fill our drinks at one point... More

My friend and I both ordered the shrimp basket and up charged it with a baked potato. After putting the butter and sour cream on it and it would not melt we asked the server if she had a better potato that we could exchange it for and she said probably NOT! The potatoes seemed to be old, dry, and... More

We stopped in shortly after five for dinner and had no problem getting seating, despite the obvious popularity of the restaurant. While not fine dining, the service was very good and the food very satisfying. Our Shrimp appetizer was the hit of the evening. I had a Jambalaya which was a little on the spicy side, but quite tasty. There... More

Had no problem with this place. The service was quick, the food was tasty and it was not overpriced. The place was full of patrons and they just kept on coming so obviously the place is popular.
