I took my nephew & his family here for a late lunch on the Friday after Thanksgiving. There was a wait but they are from TX & had never been to NOLA so they enjoyed people watching as we waited. The service & food were excellent. We had two young children who totally enjoyed their children's plates of fried fish/fried... More

This local restaurant is a comfortable, homey place to stop for lunch - the prices are great and the food quality was fabulous. After a... More

Stopped in to this place while walking down Magazine. The waitress was amazing and suggested we sit outside in the sun. We had the catfish Taco and Shrimp remoloude-but the killer side was the red beans and rice. Creamy with the scent of smoked ham hock floating in the broth. I also had a great gall of dark rum that... More

Love this place and the area. Good food and service were great!! About 3 miles from Canal, so taxi ride was easy. I highly recommend.

Simon, the artist on Jackson Street, recommended this as one of his standby restaurants. Lucky us! Fried green tomatoes, crab and oysters: outside seating: basic, good and satisfying food with a great waiter, Adam.

A very good local hangout that serves everyday local cuisine. I was surprised to see negative reviews. I live in the neighborhood and eat here once to twice a week. The food is always more than acceptable. This is NOT a high dollar chi chi place, but a low-key everyman's restaurant preparing reasonable food at a reasonable price and served... More

stopped for a drink and couldn't resist the eggplant Napoleon. I suggest everyone give this a taste. Menu looked interesting but there is too much to eat in NOLA to try everything.

We stopped here after reading all of the glowing reviews on Foursquare, Yelp & Urban Spoon. We thought this was going to be amazing! We both went with the po' boys & onion rings. It was absolutely below average! Nothing special here. The men's bathroom was completely disgusting (fly's galore and even a small boy loudly remarked how gross it... More

Snuck into this place on the corner on Magazine St. Good thing because 20 minutes later it was packed with hungry diners waiting for a table. They had some tables outside too. Ordered the fried green tomatoes with grilled shrimp special-if it's available, you have to order this!!! Hubby had a cup of red beans and rice- so smoky and... More
