Unprepossessing from the outside but worth the wait in line if you have to

Friendly staff, great food and very buzzy. Well worth visiting, we had a very good dinner and the waiting staff were attentive whilst we were waiting for a table.

True Cajun cooking! It's absolutely delicious. We enjoy going here every time we're in town! Our wait was long but it was a Friday night during Mardi Gras week. We didn't mind to wait.

I personally like "rustic" restaurants and we had dinner here while attending mardi gras. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the Cajun food was very good and fairly priced. The crawfish were in season and seasoning in the "boil" was excellent. Will definitely stop here again next time we are in town.

We had lunch here today while in town for Mardi Gras. The charbroiled oysters, fried crawfish tails, and grilled shrimp were delicious. I snagged one of the hubby's blackened shrimp and it did not disappoint. We got there around 11am and were seated immediately. But there was a line by noon. Definitely stop by and snap a pic with the... More

Finally had the opportunity to eat here after many years of just passing by. The wait staff seemed to be occupied by things other than their assigned tables and as to the food if you like your boiled crawfish cold and flavorless this is your place. The fried shrimp and fries were also cold with the shrimp being overcooked.

Went here to eat while on a business trip to Houma. Saw it from the road and decided to eat there. Truly yummy gator bites, divine boudin and good chicken and sausage gumbo!! Had to wait a bit but it was worth it! Both other customers and staff very friendly. We even exchanged a few recipes! Go there, have a... More

First off, our waitress was soooo slow. Came in at 5:45 and didn't take our order for almost 15 minutes. Didnt get our food til after 7. I ordered the gumbo and it was the worst gumbo I've ever had. Very watery and no flavor. Ordered hush puppies and they weren't cooked all the way. Lastly I ordered the beignets,... More

This is a cozy restaurant with fun and welcoming wait staff. My gumbo and crawfish kickers were nice, but the potato salad side was super. Fun restaurant.

We've been buying Boudreaux and Thibodeau joke books since our first visit to Louisiana but this was our first time eating here. We had the corn nuggets and hush puppies, both crisp, light and disappeared. The Cajun Sampler platter was excellent and our son raved about his alligator half and half. The blackened catfish was cooked to perfection, could have... More
