A night hot spot in Old Town Manassas

Local yocals like going here for happy hour and catching up with the single crowd for the atmosphere. Couples frequently go here for 1st dates, so I've been advised. Why? The place hums with animation and people being their gregarious selves. The food, in my opinion, is just OK. It's not bad... read more

This is a good place to listen music at weekends, get a drink, and have fun with friends. Close to the Old town Manassas, a lot of parking lots free.

This restaurant is small but sassy. Great food, good sized portions, and a friendly atmosphere. The outside seating area is a great way to enjoy Manassas' Old Towne vibe on a nice day - have a hurricane and a huge portion of muffaletta and enjoy. While those of us with a seafood allergy don't have much to choose from on... More

Nice find, great atmosphere, good wine and cocktail list, unpretentious food with a good selection if your not into alligator, okra or grits. We had a live band playing Saturday evening which really ramped up the atmosphere. Service was a little slow for our party of ten, but this place was packed, go early for a table anytime after 7.00pm... More

Of all the restaurants in Manassas this is one that I have never tried until this weekend. Some spices don't always agree so I played it safe with the Cajun Chopped Salad with a grilled chicken breast. The meal was very good and reasonably priced. Based on other reviews I would like to return and try some other items on... More

Having spent almost 8 years living in Biloxi, Mississippi and enjoying cajun food I have always had a hankerin for it. This place is as close as you can get to what Cajun Food is all about...

This is one of my favorite resturants! I almost always get the same thing, and am never dissapointed. They did go through a transition in the last year, but have bounced back better than ever! We go there on date nights, and like it so much we even had dinner there after our wedding!

Well spicy food to pair with red wine:). I like the happy-hour half price appetizer and wine. Nothing really bad about the restaurant and menu, except it does not have alligator meat and kinda cramped inside. If you are in Manassas and do not know where to go try this. Great for lunch too!

One of my friends at work lives this place so we tried it. It must gave been an off night because it was just "meh." My gumbo tastes better, which is subjective but I know it has more seafood. I am starting to feel like some folks who review places never try the real deal. I have been to Louisiana.... More
