Good food, good service, great prices

The food was good and service was, too. We went at night and I loved that it's on the water and we could watch the colored lights on the bridge. Very relaxed atmosphere. Great prices ! I really liked this place !

Food was great with large portions. Beautiful river views and sea atmosphere. It's right off I 35 but the turn comes up very fast so don't miss it like we did. Very close to Baylor

Decided to eat here for our girls weekend dinner. Etoufee was ordered. It was bland and not your typical Cajun flavor. I'm from Louisiana and it's not the best. I would not recommend this dish. The Bloody Mary's were good and so were the Armadillo Eggs. In fact, I thought the Armadillo Eggs were better than George's Crazy Wings. I... More

This restaurant had excellent Cajun food. It had a huge variety. The staff was extremely friendly. The restaurant sat over the river and it sat right by the bridge which was beautiful when it lit up at night. The portions of food were very big. Everything we tried was good. No complaints at all. Look forward to returning on our... More

The food was great. We had a wide variety of dishes, and everyone really enjoyed them. Pretty view of the river from almost anywhere in the restaurant. Can't wait to go back when it is warmer and we can sit on the deck!

I-35 is the worse! We were driving to Dallas and decided to make a pit-stop here. It was a great choice! The view of the lighted bridge could be seen from your table. The food was excellent and at a great price! Staff was friendly and helpful. They have "Armadillo Eggs", which is chicken stuffed with cheese and jalapenos... best... More

This place has changed hands I guess since our last visit and is now mostly cajun food. It was ok, but mine was way to spicy to enjoy and hid the real taste. However my wife ordered a past style dish and it was ok.

The menu looks awfully exciting, doesn't it? I've never been impressed with this restaurant, once the food gets to the table it just seems like Zatarans. That said, the drinks are really good and I think it's the only place in town you can get fresh oysters.
