Very casual place. Only 2 waiters running to all tables, good luck trying to get a hold of them. Seems popular for oysters & crawfish. Pros: Nice clean, cold oysters Cons: No oyster specials :(

This was my first time eating there and it was recommended to my cousins who were in visiting from out of state by someone at their hotel. I really loved their atmosphere. Our waiter was probably one of the best ones I have ever had serve me anywhere. He was so helpful and friendly. The food was amazing. There was... More

We had the really, really big steamed shrimp and they were delicious. The waiter was always on top of our needs (beer and coke never ran dry)! The tables are huge with plenty of room to peel and eat shrimp. The bartender was really funny and it was obvious that he was having a great time serving his customers. Thanks... More

When we walked into this place and saw what it is, a sports bar that serves seafood and barbeque, I guess I shouldn't have expected too much. Well, my wife and I both ordered a snapper entre which came with sides of roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. The broccoli and potatoes were OK even though some of those potatoes were... More

Entering the busy restaurant we were seated quickly at a booth. The environment was one of a casual , friendly combination bar and restaurant. After our waitress clarified our menu questions, my husband and myself ordered the grilled snapper entree with a side of broccoli and roasted potatoes. The snapper was a little overdone, which made it a little tough.... More

We went on a Tuesday night and it wasn't real busy when we first got there. The place was grungy and is just a dive bar. I ordered the bbq taco's and they were supposed to be pulled pork. They were chopped pork and it was horrible. Hubby ordered shrimp and said he has had better from a grocery store.... More

I had the Seared Ahi Tuna and a few drinks at the bar ...soooo amazing!! I was greeted by an extremely outgoing gentleman at the bar the moment I walked in, and we slowly surrounded by regulars and newbies that just added to the jazziness. The food was delicious and the specialty drinks were outstanding. This is my new favorite... More
