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.

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.

A friend recommended this place and glad they did. Went for lunch and had a crab cake po'boy. Portion side was pretty big had great flavor. This place is right along side the Mississippi River and although we sat inside, we had a good view of the river. There was a band playing and it was not too loud to... More

Prior to my stay in NOLA, I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews in hopes of finding a great fish sandwich (they are hard to get where I live). My gf and I decided to walk from our hotel to this restaurant. And while this should have been about a 15 minute walk, it took... More

Loved the bloody mary choices with the spicy beans. Sat at the bar both times and had good service and good conversation. Nice that most... More

Great food! Awesome service from chuck rock. Atmosphere was nice on the river. The only thing I can say not so good was it was a little pricey for what you got.

Food was good, but the cost was not. High prices for average seafood. Good location on the Spanish Plaza over looking the Mississippi.

We had heard about this place and stopped by for a quick appetizer while exploring the city around 3pm, there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant that I could see. We ordered gator bites which we thought tasted like fried sausage for $10. Server was friendly.
