We walked in after walking past the open window of the crab boil. I had my first taste of a po boy and the shrimp in it was incredible. Next time I visit, I will definitely be stopping back here. As you walk in... You get nailed with a great smell of seafood.

Got the Garlic and herb char-grilled oysters and shrimp and crab dip for a light dinner with my mom. We should've listened to the reviews.... While yes the oysters were good (not the best) the dip was too fishy. Again the service was bad, we had to find out own silverware. Though it smells amazing walking by....not worth the price... More

The food and atmosphere are great! What brought us in was the smell of the boiling crawfish from the window. We sat at the oyster bar and were treated like royalty by Johnny. He was awesome! He brought us crawfish - taught us how to eat them :) We will definitely be back as everything we ordered was great!

I guess it's pricey because of the location. I had a shrimp & oyster po boy. Friends had the gumbo and loved it & shrimp. Wish I had the sample platter... next time.

My friends and I were recommended to try crawfish here by a local taxi driver - best in town he advised!! Upon arrival we went straight upstairs to sit on the balcony and take in the views and sounds of Decatur St. We had the BEST waiter help us out with our meal and drinks. Thank you Richie!!!

Ordered the shrimp creole that tasted like it came out of a can. Then the waitress had to "ask" if she could bring us another dish and not charge us because people usually like the food...huh? Then they messed up the new order. Would not go back especially when there are some many yummy places nearby. Save your time and... More

No place is cheap to eat in the French Quarter, but I felt like we got our money's worth. The portions were large and the taste divine. Good service.

we went there to try out oysters. I hardly eat oysters. My husband and my son loved it and forced me to try it. We wanted to order more but they ran out of oysters char grilled in garlic sauce. It was so good and we went back again the next day. They also have good fried green tomatoes with... More

There is nothing wrong with this place but it is not outstanding either. The food is simple and cooked well and the slightly cramped seating inside is forgivable due to a nice atmosphere. I had the spicy pasta jambalaya which was tasty but not so spicy and my wife had the regular jambalaya which was very average. The service was... More
