We were walking by and could smell the boiled shrimp boiling so we went on in. The only place to sit was at the bar. Starting out the bartender was not friendly. The drinks were only ok but the shrimp were great. The bartender overheard me say that he was not friendly and his attitude changed.

The menu offers all kinds of seafood, some sandwiches, pasta, steaks, and some Cajun/creole dishes. The emphasis is on the seafood. My husband had the jambalaya,and it was outstanding. I had the seafood platter (shrimp, oysters, deviled crab, and fries). Mine was good and well-seasoned, but the jambalaya is the thing to get. It's very casual, well lit, and large... More

having just arrived in NOLA, we were starving! Drawn by the music and outdoor seating, we decided to try it. I had a shrimp 'n oyster poboy with a tasty Bloody Mary (love the pickled green beans!) My daughter had popcorn crawfish, which she loved. However, even better than the food was the music. Old timers playing live jazz, N.O.... More

Hubby had gumbo or something and I had some kind of sandwich. Neither was good and I almost tossed my cookies while trying to eat. Finally gave up - no way could I eat it.

We walked by earlier in the day and smelled the boil and knew we had to return for dinner. The Snow Crab legs (boil) were absolutely amazing. The garlic grilled Oysters were similarly superb. The Shrimp Boil wasn't as good as the crab but still very good. Finally, the cheesecake was tasty but it's whipped and airy so the texture... More

We ate here after a very long hot day of sight seeing. The food was magnificent, I had red beans and rice with catfish, my husband had Cajun jambalaya. Both our meals were fantastic and the cheesecake was out of this world. The service was very very good. You simply must try this.

I had lunch here while on a business trip. It was crowded, but I was able to grab a table for lunch. I had red beans and rice... and it was good. Waitress was nice and service was fast.

Wanted to get a poboy while in NOLA and wasn't disappointed. The blackened catfish was delicious! The waitstaff was extremely friendly also.

Had been out walking around for quite awhile and the smell coming for this place caught our noses and we had to go it. We were seated right away and our server was super friendly. Neither my cousin nor I were very impressed with the food. I ordered the stuffed crab appetizer and steamed shrimp for my dinner. The crab... More
