Walking distance from our hotel and found our way back to French Quarter after dinner. Seafood was worth the walk. Service was excellent -- quick and efficient. Atmosphere great. Food was probably near the top of the seafood we ate on our trip to NOLA. Great value for $$.

Anywho... this place has really great boiled seafood. Season just right & portion size appropriate as well; it was my first time here, but it definitely won't be my... More

We had a late lunch here prior to a special dinner, and ordered a shrimp poboy to share. It was outstanding! Sadly, our server was not a happy person which made our lunch less pleasant. The location is an excellent one, facing the Mississippi River. The decor is fun and the openness of the place makes for a roomier effect.... More

Took a $30 meal, boosted the price to $60, gave me a $30 groupon discount. After all the fancy financing this is still a mediocre dinner. Portions are huge. Food is all over salted with Bay Seasoning. Service was ok, friendly but alternately rushed and slow, my special request for groupon verification never addressed. Etoufee is meh, calimari decent but... More

Delicious - crab cakes are the best along with a beautiful view of The River. Highly recommend for a pleasant lunch or dinner. The staff will make sure you have a wonderful meal and do take care of you.

We ate here because it was close to our hotel. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as what I hoped for from NOLA cuisine. The best part of the meal was the key lime pie.

Went there for a company function, 135 people. Had appetizers and it was great. Being close to the river also added charm. The gumbo was excellent and the service outstanding.

I only went once, had creole shrimp. Cheesecake tasted like banana artificial flavoring was added to it. Disgusting flavor. Service was almost non-existent, food was cold. Seems they were not really interested in pleasing.
