the wait is 30-45 mins which is ok for a weekend. Policy sucks. They will not seat you until all of party is on site. My daughter and i were meeting two friends arriving later. They refused to seat us at a table for four to wait and possibly order appetizers and drinks. They work on how many people they... More

The food is great and service is very good. The only bad thing is the wait especially in the winter when a line is outside and you have to wait because restaurant does not have lots of waiting room.

Great food,you must get there a little before 5:00 or you have to wait for a place to be seated. Sometimes that up to an hour, but they have a great bar so enjoy.

I haven't been there in a long time and I must say I do not like to wait long to eat but this was worth the wait. We all had a great meal and will go back. The reason the wait is so long is because the food is so good.

Great food but be prepared for an hour and half or more of a wait!! Everytime we come it is crazy crowed. Very unorganized, half of the seats weren't being used. I enjoy the food greatly but only come once in awhile due to the high wait time!!

My husband and I were in the Douglasville area visiting a local state park and decided to drive over and check this place out after seeing the TripAdvisor reviews. We were definitely not disappointed! The lunch crowd was large, but we found seats at the bar and ordered drinks. Hurricanes were fabulous and only $6 each. We ordered soft shelled... More

My husband and I went here for lunch one day. He had gumbo and I had a big plate of gator and hush puppies. I think our bill with tip was still under $25. Food was good and a nice alternative to the chain restaurants you find in this area.

My friend and I recently visited this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. The line was so long until we decided to forgo a dining table and sit at the bar. We ordered red beans and rice, shrimp etouffee and another 'authentic dish' that I can't recall, but to say we were highly disappointed, is an understatement. The 'red beans and... More
