We attended a rehearsal dinner at this restaurant and enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. The desserts were fantastic. The owner and his son were super and we look forward to returning.

Both times we had incredible service and the food was perfect.This space doesn't have the ability to convey how good i thought the food was so I am going to share my blog post that I was inspired to...

Good food, atmosphere, and service! We had gumbo, étouffée , shrimp and grits, and bananas foster. Gumbo and étouffée were unbelievable. Probably wouldn't repeat the shrimp and grits because the shrimp had a funny texture. The bananas foster was grainy because they hadn't cooked the brown sugar, butter, and alcohol long enough, but still had a good taste. We will... More

We ate at the Main Street location this evening and I absolutely loved it! I ordered the fried catfish with red beans/rice and fries, delicious! My son ordered the fried chicken and it was yummy as well. I wish I lived here so I could enjoy this great restaurant all the time. The service was fantastic and friendly! Go try... More

This relatively small restaurant is the 2nd location in Memphis. It is on Main Street on the trolley line. We had fried oysters as appetizer which were lightly battered, perfectly cooked, and served with a nice remoulade sauce rather than cocktail sauce. We share the sampler entrée with shrimp creole, gumbo, crawfish etouffee and alligator stew. All four were excellent... More

First visit last night. A very lively place. Wonderful , festive atmosphere befitting it's name. Although it was very busy our server, Robert was always on point. We started with fried oysters; some of the best I've had in years. They were hand breaded and just so good I could have had a few more and used that as my... More

We searched this place out because my husband is vegetarian, and it's a treat whenever there is an entire vegetarian section on a menu. I tried the bbq chicken with fried plantains and sweet potatoes, and it was wonderful. My husband really liked his mock chicken salad sandwich. I tried a bite, and liked it, too. The restaurant had great... More

We went to the downtown restaurant on our recent stay in Memphis. It had a nice atmosphere and the staff was very attentive and friendly. We all enjoyed the food we ordered except our vegetarian-vegan daughter. She ordered her veggies plain, but was sure it did not come that way. It was her choice not to bring this to the... More

All I can say was wow. This is the best creole food I have ever placed in my mouth. Gary was super friendly and came to our table. This was my best meal in Memphis.

This little jewel is tucked away downtown and we were glad we stumbled across it. If it wasn't for the gentleman holding the door open inviting us in we probably would have walked on by. With the door open we could smell the delicious creations being served inside, and that's all it took for us to happily give them a... More
