Tried this restaurant for the first time tonight (7/19). The service was great and the food was good. My son wanted to try an oyster so the waitress (who was spectacular) brought one over and explained to him how to eat it. All went well at first.... The restaurant did not charge us for the meal he... read more

The place has a lot of character...the waitress was quiet but sweet..she recommended food...my family and I had the sampler..the shrimp plate and some oysters...all of it was good. My wife doesn't love oysters but she said these were the best of the worst lol. A bit on the pricy side though..the three of us had water and split one... More

Very nice place, I ordered a catfish instead of red fish, just to vary a little bit. As I was just one I used the counter, but the service were very good.

Very friendly and attentive staff at this reasonably priced Bourbon Street restaurant. The roast beef poboy was juicy and delicious! Note: 10% discount for French Quarter residents, too!

This was the last place we stopped on our way back home. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and knowledgeable. Our server Christina was impeccable! She knew the menu inside and out. She had suggestions that were dead on. I asked for a virgin of a hurricane and it was better than any alcohol version I have ever... More

Right on Bourbon Street you may find tourist traps but also one of the most typical local restaurants with excellent and tasty food. You should not expect nouvelle cuisine or such stuff, but if your grandma was from there you would expect her to cook like this, spicy if you like and first of all tasty.The baked oysters were excellent...

Stopped here with a group of friends on a Thursday night. Service was good with an attentive staff keeping up with our party of 6. We ordered 3 appetizers to share and they were really on point (BBQ shrimp, shrimp remoulade, and alligator). The BBQ shrimp was absolutely outstanding. Never had the flavors they managed together before and makes one... More

They give you plenty of food & the drinks were yummy. The shrimp po boy was good. Nice view of Bourbon Street during lunch time.....a bit on the pricey side though.
