I'm a local and have never had a bad meal here. The blackened chicken, shrimp and scallops dinner is a favorite of mine, but everything on the menu is good... and don't forget about the daily specials. The atmosphere of the restaurant is "cozy" with tables very close together giving it a feel like many restaurants in NYC. The wait... More

The HSC is an awesome foodie with a Cajun theme little place. The food is consistently delicious, yes, delicious! Every dish I've had there is fantastic. It's small inside so if you're going on a weekend make a reservation. The drinks are good, a decent beer list, and the service has always been excellent. Highly recommend!

High Street is one of those rare gems that gets it right each and every time. We have been going to High Street for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. The food and service is always fantastic. Rivals some of the top restaurants in NYC. What else is there to say. Do yourself a favor and... More

I decided to reserve a table for Father's Day based on reviews I read on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. Food was authentic and delicious. Every one enjoyed their meal from the appetizer to the desert. No one went home hungry. We are anxious to bring other families members to experience the tasty food. The calamari was some... More

We recently hosted a rehearsal dinner here and the food was excellent despite our large gathering. Several of our tests were from Louisiana ad cooknteirown Cajun food. Even tense guests raved about the food. Desserts were excellent as well, including bananas foster and a chocolate pecan pie. I would highly recommend this place.

This restaurant is outstanding! The food is wonderful and the servings are hugh. I had to take home most of my entrée as it was delicious but I could not eat even half of it. The deserts were amazing and, again, huge. The chocolate mousse was as good as I have had.

The restaurant was quaint, and the food was superb. Parking on the street was virtually non-existent, but there was a parking lot in the back. Worth the effort.

Ducked in here on a recommendation. The sun was still up and it was hot, so we opted to sit inside. I had a hard time picking a beer from the LONG list of excellent microbrews. Étouffée and jambalaya came highly recommended. I'm picky about my étouffée, but it was one of the best I've had - well balanced flavors,... More
