Unexpectedly and completely by chance, one of the best down to earth Cajun country charm restaurants I have ever been to. Excellent food, with a chef unafraid to speak to everyone and make you feel at home. Great diversified menu, not to over the top spicy. In other words flavorful and thoughtfully prepared food.

Over priced and not good at all. The sirloin tips were a disgusting block of some sort very tough beef. I ordered mine medium and it was very well done. It was tasteless and I'd rather eat my shoe.
