Really good food, and some decent deals most nights. The only negative is that it is sometimes really loud due to the music being unnecessarily loud.

Moe Joes has the best fried chicken in the area . You can choose sides which is great. Problem is their. " image ". Girls gone wild type is not conducive to good service. It's pretty hit and miss, unfortunately can be more miss.

Group of four adults dining at 7pm on a Sunday. Not sure if my son made a reservation, but we were seated right away. Only 1 other table available in the dining room. Service was prompt and friendly. Not super noisy. Great Bourbon Street atmosphere. We were not aware we had a Cajun/Caribbean restaurant so close to home and were... More

Our food was good and somewhat unique. This is a bar so it can be noisy and a little crowded as the night goes on, also dark inside.

First things first, Its definitely a bar. It's dark, brooding and if you go at the wrong time has a tendency to be loud. The food however is delicious. Don't miss their Boar burger and alligator appetizer. I'm drooling just thinking about them.

I've dined here a few times and I really like the food. The corn fritter is not to be missed. Excellent frogs legs... Lemony marinade. Beautifully fried with a light batter. Moist. Delicious. Flavorful jambalaya. Alligator bites appetizer is expertly deep fried and served with a tasty sauce and, yes , tastes like chicken. Food is good. But Service is... More

We recently moved to Plainfield and decided to try this place that we heard so much about. The place did have a New Orleans feel to it from a decoration standpoint but sadly to me at least the food did not live up to it. We started with a appetizer of onion strings which were cooked nicely and the dipping... More
