Great Louisiana feel

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.

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

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.

Clean, good service, fast service, waitress did not let any of the 5 of our drinks run out. Had fried crab claws, boudin balls, onion rings. and the best appetizer was the fried bacon wrapped shrimp. They ran out of gator, and because they are not online and do not have a menu with carbs for us diabetics, no 5... More

We went on a swamp trip which takes off and returns just behind the restaurant....then stayed for a 4 PM dinner - very slightly slow, but wow - the food was better than what we had at the top restaurants in New Orleans . I had the grilled frog legs with small salad and baked potato. The frog legs were... More

Maybe I was spoiled by all the good food in New Orleans, but I thought this place was merely good, maybe a 3.5 stars, but not 4 star. The hush puppies were the best part, and they were great. The Onion rings were good, especially with the included sauce. The crab cake, however, was a little too fishy, not top... More
