Having spent a good amount of time in my work in the New Orleans area I believe I have a pretty good idea what is authentic. I would suggest the jumbalia. As a side note New Orleans cooking is not the same as Cajun and I have had both. Love the food.

But this is one of my favorite places in Seattle. Why? A good Jambalya as well as a decent single-malt scotch selection. All for under $20. What else can I say? It's in Pioneer Square, so it's easy to get to, although not easy to park near. My advice? Go!

I ventured into to this little piece of the Crescent City, after having gone down to New Orleans for a couple weeks in April 2013. Through the week the restaurant was only open for lunch service, so as I showed up at three they were starting to scale back the menu, which though a tad frustrating did bring me even... More

Old Sam Cooke jazz playing in an old historic building on a cool December Saturday night with my husband, yummy food and STRONG drinks. What could be better? Very reasonable food prices and a relaxing atmosphere.

Because the atmosphere, the service and the music is terrific, that's why. One does not come here for the food -- although the ribs are OK -- but for the fun. The young wait staff works very hard and is attentive, the jazz combos usually are topnotch local, and everyone seems to be in a good mood. Even a little... More

Had dinner and listened to music. Good food. Service a little slow, only one server. The food was worth the wait. Drink too strong had to keep sending back.

We didn't eat here as the menu did not appeal to us, everything was fried. But we DID have a couple of drinks and came here 2 nights in a row for the free music, starting at 4pm. It was grat both nights....slow service.

This review is primarily about the Monday night Dixieland band. This group of fantastic musicians has been playing at the restaurant every Monday night for twenty-seven years. They really swing! The food is OK, but I probably would not eat here unless there was music I wanted to hear. We had fried oysters and seafood etoufee, both of which were... More

You can’t beat it for good food and entertainment. The entrees were delicious and plentiful and very reasonably priced. I had the jambalaya. We paid a $5 cover, had a few drinks, appetizers and entrees and still walked out with money in our pockets. The music was great. Elnah Jordan can really belt out a song. If you are looking... More
