Better food at McDonald's, Hardees or Burger King and would not feed the crap served here to a rat so with that said I do highly recommend staying out of this restaurant want to be and the hotel.

The food was bland and dull. I went for the crawfish poboy and found it dry and somewhat rubbery. My better half had the seafood gumbo which, for the price, disappointed.

Food was excellent! Prices were reasonable. I got the crawfish half & half. The étouffée was awesome, & fried was hand battered in cornmeal,... More
