Great place

Had a very nice meal here last night. Menu has some interesting selections - I personally recommend the Daufuskie Grouper. Our wait staff, Devan, was awesome.

Went on a recommendation. Ended up eating there 3 nights in a row. Nice enough for a date night or in flip flops. Ribs are fantastic. Dry rub fall off the bone tasty. Shrimp and Grits wonderful. Angus filet very tender and delicious. Ask for the bacon cheddar cornbread. Very attentive service.

Great dishes prepared int he Cajun style. I highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits, Blackened Ribeye and Pork Chops. If you want something really spicy, go for the Crawfish Étouffée, Jambalaya or the Grouper Dafuski. This restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Host Guy Fieri liked the Grouper Dafuski.

The service was very personable. We visited the restaurant at 6:30pm so service was on the slow side as they were busy-worth the wait. I suggest arriving between 7:30-8pm. The crab-stuffed homemade raviolis in a cream cheese sauce was out of this world! My entree was the shrimp with a thinly-crusted piece of grits in a sauce. Fantastic. The sausage... More

It's a little over priced, and serving sizes are small. I was definitely not impressed. The waitress we had was super busy, and told us the specials so quickly we couldn't understand her. The decor was great.

We always have to wait when eat here, but it's worth it. A very well run and creative food choices that would please anyone. Avoid romper-room a few doors away and spend the evening with professionals.

We ordered from the $10 early bird menu...Note it is a petite size version off the main menu. Our 2 meals were very good and adequate serving

I really enjoyed this place. The southern/Louisiana food was great. I really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes. For my main course, I had the ribs with rice and beans and fried okra. All were great! The atmosphere is southern, eclectic and comfortable. The service was great, and the food reasonably priced for such large servings! I can see why Guy... More
