Our second time to eat here when visiting New Orleans. Fast and friendly service. Red Beans and rice are delicious! Po Boys are yummy too. Crawfish was out of season this time but everything else to eat was great. Also sweet tea was excellent

It was July. It was Noon on a Saturday and it was hot. All of our regular restaurants had long lines out the door with most of the people standing in the sun. We walked past the French Market Restaurant and there was no line. We had never been there before and decided to give them an opportunity. As we... More

Our party consisted of 5 people. It started with "Cat" the hostess, she had a very warming and helping attitude, with a great since of humor. Our waitresses were Courtney & Dana, we did not want for anything with their attentiveness. I will be returning to New Orleans (God willing), and upon my return I will be eating their delicious...

Arrived here after a few cocktails. Was quite busy but managed to find a table for us. Service good throughout. Shared the crawfish dip and then I had the swamp plate - a full plate full of alligator, shrimp etc - very tasty and nicely presented. Would recommend.

We enjoyed a nice lunch here after our swamp tour. I had the stuffed avocado which I enjoyed....nice and light. My girls enjoyed their crab cakes and my husband really liked his alligator sausage. A nice cool spot and great service.

The best meal of our trip. Our server, Courtney, and the hostess, Cat, treated us so well. We felt like family. The food was large portions and delicious. The manager came around and check on customers regularly. This is a definite must eat at.

We visited with family and got a bunch of different apps and meals so everyone could try. Great gumbo and great jambalaya. Was disappointed there wasn't any crawfish, but will try their boil next time.
