Been here twice. First time had Shrimp and Grits that was fantastic, second time had Crawfish Etouffee that was only okay. Definitely a locals' hangout, probably better if you are with a regular or they know you. Worth a shot!

Had a business meeting with a guy from Ohio. He could tell from the first bite that the seafood was fresh not frozen as he was accustomed. We both enjoyed the food. Recommend the seafood platter.

My brother and I went for his birthday. We both got the alligator platter and each one was $20. Granted, I knew what the prices were, but was shocked by the small portions and mediocre food quality. The side salad was a joke, the dressing tasted like it came out of a bottle, and the fries I got were generic... More

I took my brother here for a birthday dinner and was shocked at the small portions we got for what I paid. We had the alligator, which I've had at other places for much less. I got fries with it and they were generic and soggy. The side salad was pretty pathetic also. On the positive side, the red velvet... More

On a 17$ seafood basket we received $4 of seafood and $13 in filler. Seriously! 4 shrimp an 4 tiny oysters and an extra large serving of French fries + bread. We ordered an expensive hamburger for my son. McDonalds is making a better burger than this place - and for $10??!! Your best bet is so skip this place!!
