Very Good. Wonderfull Staff

Nothing fancy here but the food was very good and the staff was terrific. Fried Chicken was outstanding! Red beans and rice with sausage was full of sausage and then more sausage on the side.

The menu has a large variety of choices, the food is prepared to perfection (I highly recommend the fried alligator), and the people are the friendliest and helpful you can find! It is definitely a "delight" on the "bayou"!

Ample choices on the menu of down home southern cooking. We ordered from all over the menu and weren't disappointed.

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the cabins we had stayed at for the night. We were a party of 6 and we all enjoyed the food. We went on a Saturday night so it was a bit crowded and there was live music. We all ate different things from boudin balls to catfish to Alligator. No complaints... More

Gumbo was good. Fried crab claws & fried pickles were my favorites. Fried alligator was tough, as alligator usually is but the disappointment was the étouffée. It was bland and boring. Very nice and helpful staff.

This restaurant was recommended by a front desk staff person at our hotel when we asked about a great place for seafood with live music. Upon arrival, I would have driven away based on the outside appearance if it had not been highly recommended. There was one person who was waiting on tables, serving food, answering the phone, handling the... More

Had the sampler platter and it was all fabulous. I usually don't care for catfish, but it was amazing. All the batter was very light and nothing was greasy. And had I known how good the boudin bites would be, I would have ordered extra!! Husband had the daily special which was baked chicken, mac and cheese, peas and rice... More

We had Saturday dinner here as family with a child. The staff was helpful, and the overall atmosphere very warm and welcoming. There was some music and locals dancing. We had great time here. The food was ok; we had fried shrimps and crawfish.

Was here last year and was not impressed so gave it another try. Little quieter than the other restaurants in the city. On the bayou and so peaceful. Our waitress, Ashley, was really great. Did her best to keep us happy. We had the fried oysters, which were thoroughly enjoyed, 3 piece chicken with the rice. Both were really good.... More

This place has the best fried chicken I've ever had. And I've had a lot of fried chicken. Not an easy place to get to unless you in the area but if you ARE in the area, make the time to eat here. It's basic, it's inexpensive and it's as good as fried chicken gets.
