Great food and service.

Best seafood around, you need to be there early. By 6pm the place is full and a line waiting to get a seat!

Not much to look at outside but packed inside. Very comfortable and friendly. Lot's of happy faces eating blue crab and fried everything else. Food was good but nothing special. All the fried food pretty much tasted the same. Gator, chicken and catfish all tasted like....chicken. Shrimp & Crab Gumbo was ok but was better with French fries tossed in!... More

If you like fried food it's good otherwise it's just okay. Waitress was good and atmosphere was casual and clean. We were told blue crab was sold out yet people after us got it. Katsup cap was moldy.

We came to lake charles to bring my daughter to college orientation. The food was amazing, but not on a college kid income. It was a bit pricey, but it was good the boudin balls were great!!

This seafood restaurant is consistently good. There is usually a line to get in so be prepared to wait. If you like Cajun seafood, this is the place to go!

Hard to find and not very impressive from the outside, but once inside everything changes. It is admittedly and unapologetically casual but the food is excellent. And yes, everything is fried. Highly recommended.

Never again! Tried to deal with a simple overcharge on our check to get it correct and the owner rudely confronted us... He told me I yelled at his waitress - which was not true. Obviously a check scam was being played on us as the waitress twice claimed she had nothing to do with the check, and the cashier... More

Fried oysters are usually at the top of my list, when I go to a Cajun restaurant. This place offers some of the best around. Paired up with some fried catfish, and perhaps a small bowl of their great seafood gumbo, and you can't help but go home happy!!

Best seafood platter around. My husband had oysters and fish. For me was seafood platter. They were very busy. We went later than we normally do, but family obligation prevailed to cause us to go later. Had to wait a little while with lots of people waiting also. But WELL worth the wait.
