We thought this place looked like a good stop and we were right! The chicken and waffle item sounded very unusual but was good. The bread pudding was a really good - one order was easily enough for 2 people.

Despite the fact that it was a slave auction site, it is nice to eat in an historic building that had other historic significance...the site where where future president Andrew Jackson planned the defensive strategy for the Battle of New Orleans. It is always nice to walk in the foots of presidents and history.

We stumbled upon this sweet restaurant. The staff was most helpful and the food delicious. Husband ordered the trio of Cajun dishes and, while he liked it, wished there had been more of each. (Good sign, in many ways, for the cooking, imo.) My Shrimp & Grits were divine. I'm not usually a fan of them, due to the spices.... More

I have to say this was one of the most flavorful dishes I've ever had. I plan on going back!!!! And our waitress Samantha was so sweet and... More

At first glance, this unassuming restaurant, is pleasant enough, service friendly. etc. Only after you order does it become apparent: This is very good food and you aren't paying an arm and a leg for it! The fried seafood plates are an extraordinary value at around $15! Piled high with crisp luscious mounds of shrimp, oysters, calamari, and fish fillets,... More

The traditional Cajun rice dishes--red beans, jumbalaya, gumbo, and etouffee--are all top notch here. Management is said to have changed in the past 8 months, and the new owner is present and attentive. The bartender made the best Hurricane that I drank on this vacation.

My wife and I ate here on my birthday. She had fried shrimp. Her meal very good. I ordered a fried crawfish platter with gumbo. Everything on the plate was cold when it arrived. The waiter gladly returned to the kitchen to get me a new order. He never once apologized. Minutes later he brought my original plate back. Seems... More
