Get pampered while you dine.

I was treated like royalty from my first step thru the door. I love the ambiance and the delicious smell. I had the drum fish special that was topped with crabmeat.

Surprised by this place and its dining room. Open on the outside Bayou, lovely decoration. Service was very good, and all waitresses very smiley. Food was very good, between the 3 dishes that we had, I would recommend the duck that was an excellent choice. Quantity and quality. Cocktails were a bit strange. Would stick to wine next time...

We stopped here to have dinner on the bayou. It was way too hot to eat outdoors but we had a great server, we relied on her recommendations, and they were very accurate.Food was delicious. I was glad we arrived early because when we were leaving there were no parking spaces left.

This is a wonderful place to have Sunday brunch on the Bayou. The atmosphere cannot be beat. There is a 3 piece jazz band and it makes for a perfect Sunday Brunch. Food is excellent.

We have been traveling all over the US for the past 8 weeks, and this was the best meal on our trip. The service was excellent, too! We had an appetizer of fried green tomatoes and shrimp. Then we had shrimp in a tasso sauce with a fried grit. Yikes! Delicious!

The food is great with a nice atmosphere. I do like the walk to the bayou behind the building. Your meal will be a little high, but the experience is worth it at least once.

Great food great and atmosphere located on scenic Bayou Bonfouca. You won't be disappointed. Nice patio dining too and they have live music now. Grab a cocktail and take a stroll on the boardwalk while your food is prepared. Your lady will love it

I love the diverse menu here. Sitting on the deck is so pleasant. The wait staff are great. This is a fun Brunch place too. I haven't had a bad meal or negative dining experience here ever.

The atmosphere inside and outside is so beautiful and welcoming, this was a top-notch date spot. The food was great and the staff worked with my husband to surprise me at our table by coordinating a special gift delivery with our dessert course. It was truly enchanting.

If the weather permits, eat on the deck. We enjoyed the view and watching the boats. Boat access with a nice pier to tie up to. Looked like a great place for wedding dinners and groups. We had great food and the service was excellent.
