My wife and I visit this location about 6 times a year. We always receive excellent service and excellent food. This trip was introducing our daughter in law to this restaurant.

If food were music in the mouth, the food here would be a symphony! The flavors are unbelievable. The artichoke soup is amazing! I have never been disappointed in a meal here!

The food here is good and the cocktails are excellent. My only complaint is that once seated, you do sit for quite some time before receiving food. That is ok with us though because that means that it is being cooked fresh.

We flew into Hammond to drop off some our company execs for a meeting. The lady working the counter at Top Gun Aviation recommended Tope La and we were not disappointed. I ordered their Red Beans and Fried Catfish off of their lunch menu. I halfway expected there to be more catfish than the two small fillets, but there was... More

The food is always delicious, and they have awesome drink specials! On Tuesdays they serve half-priced wine, which is when we usually go. The service is always great :)

I would recommend this place. I just sat at the bar to have dinner on a business trip and the bartender was very nice and helpful. My food was good and they had a 2-for-1 wine special which was great.

Lot of people in restaurant due to graduation but staff was still efficient and food was wonderful. We all had something different and shared around table. From fish, steak and hamburgers, food was well cooked. Chef came out to check on us and others to make sure we were satisfied. I recommend this venue for small to large parties.

A real gem off I-12 in Hammond. My husband and I stopped here for lunch at 2 pm on the way back from North Carolina. Delicious seafood duo - fried catfish and shrimp and tasty artichoke shrimp casserole bake. Wonderful service, pleasant atmosphere and quick service. Nice roadside dining find.

We tried lunch here. The food was average. My fish was fried and over cooked. The place has an interesting menu and is interesting inside. The service is not so good. They brought me the wrong order and then refilled my glass with the wrong drink. The waitress had the habit of disappearing during the meal. Maybe it was just... More
