It is a must for laid back casual Cajun in the Big Easy. The chicken and andouille gumbo is light, modern and spicy. The service is attentive and fun. I highly recommend it for good local cuisine at a reasonable price. It's BYOB and no corkage fee for the first bottle or six pack which is a great deal in... More

Went with a colleague and I had the chicken and dumplings. Served in a small cast iron skillet, it was hot, creamy, and rich with flavor! Quite filling. However, I started with the gumbo and it was heaven!!! Even at five bucks a cup , it's worth it because of the blended favors of the rue, chicken, and sausage. It's... More

Late lunch, just caught the kitchen still open. Best meal of our vacation! Service was great and even though it was close to closing, no rushing us. Best burger, biscuits and gravy. Homemade jam was spectacular.

We were looking for something close to the start of our Ghost tour and found this place. Great comfort food, lots of options. We had the bacon deviled eggs and then chicken and dumplings (done as more of a baked item), which was amazing.

Chicken, sausages, Gumbo, corn bread, green beans and desserts-pecan pie & sweet potato pie were excellent. Service was fast and attentive. Only a short wait to be seated on a Friday night.

This place should not be missed!!! Tucked in snugly on a street corner off the French Quarter is this jewel of New Orleans! We frequently go to NO but our last visit we walked the side streets and found Eat. We won't miss it again I can assure you. We went for brunch and the Cochon With Mustard Greens are... More

We heard this a newer place that locals go too. We went for lunch, it was great. The food was great, the service was good. The best is the peanut butter cake if they have it!
