The food was delicious. Very creative. We have the fried green tomato remoulade-delish. DH had the trio, I had a salad. All was excellent. Unfortunately we got an indifferent waiter that had better things to do than acknowledge his patrons. Had to ask if there were any specials, unfriendly, uninformed, Just terrible. Wouldn't let Charles' attitude keep us from a... More

I cannot begin to express how good this place is. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. We had the chicken/sausage gumbo and corn w/poblano pepper soup which was soup de jour. Absolutely delicious. One of us had redfish special and I had Cochon w/mustard greens. Both were great. The best was the butter beans w/ shrimp then over rice. These... More

I was staying nearby and walked past this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Glad I did! Small restaurant with great food and service! I tried the Gumbo and I would have to say this was exceptional! Would thoroughly recommend going here just for the Gumbo!!!

We decided to try this #1 in New Orleans (Trip Advisor) for lunch as the forecast for the evening was for heavy thunderstorms. We could not have been happier with our decision. The restaurant is open from 11 or 11:30 until 2 for lunch and we were advised that they really try to get out promptly at 2. We purchased... More

We ate dinner at EatNO in early July, having made a reservation after reading favourable reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. We appreciated bringing our own bottle of wine (there is a school across the street and the restaurant cannot apparently get a liquor license), but we found the service slow, and the food underwhelming. We ordered the 'chicken... More

Tiny but great restaurant. Fresh ingredients. The BBQ shrimp is amazing. Tip: no liquor license, but you can bring your own bottle of wine.

Home style meals, Erik looked after us and did a great job. This place doesn't sell alcohol but you can bring your own which is a bonus. Would go back there again. Met another Australian couple there also! Thanks again Erik.

We were a party of 11 women and they were very accommodating. Each one of us got something different and everyone agreed that the food was excellent. Loved the way the restaurant was set up in a small house. I had the blackened catfish with cheese grits. The catfish was truly blackened and not just highly seasoned. I would recommend... More

What a precious neighborhood cafe. We loved the hamburger with Brie, the shrimp and grits( a little too heavy on the grits) and the fried green tomatoes. They only had strawberry preserves for their big ol biscuits. Nice you can have such variety for brunch. You can bring your own booze. Service was great. Prices very reasonable. Enjoy!

I had the Shrimp BLT and it was really good with Fried Green Tomatoes!! So glad I can step out of my comfort zone. Red beans and rice was delicious and I don't like them. My family also raved about their collard greens. Breakfast is "THE" Spot!!
