The food was good and the atmosphere is nice. This is a fun, lighthearted place to visit with friends.

So glad we could find a restaurant that is 21&up! The place is dimly lit, so that makes everyone feel more at ease with alcohol that is! There have so many drinks to choose from! I ordered the schofferhofer grapefruit, and it was DELICIOUS!!! For my meal, I ordered the crawfish ettoufee. YUMMY. The alligator cheesecake was a bit different... More

I'm vegan, but that intrigues me. I have eaten here a few times and have not been disappointed. Their fries are to die for and both the veggie sandwich and burger are really tasty. Always great service and a pretty cool atmosphere.

This is one of my stapes when traveling to Salt Lake City. I haven't had a bad thing on the menu. The gumbolaya is my favorite. And the beer list is very extensive. Some consider it overwhelming. That's alright. Just ask your server. They're usually pretty good with recommendations.

I love this pub! Great staff, great food, great service and sweet potato fries! Always a great time. I really like the breezeway that is open during the warmer months.

Dinner here is great if they would stop running out of gumbo! I settled for jambalaya and beer and it was a great filling meal. Hot sauce is available from sissy stuff to 5 engine fire water. They have a great selection of beer on tap as well as bottled. My friend did get the last gumbo so I know... More

Visited this restaurant with a large group. Took a while to be seated despite having called ahead to advise of the group. However once seated service was fine. Food was good (Cajun food, lots of options) but the real feature of the place was the beer and liquor menu. One of the best selections I've ever seen and a wide... More

Very good food. Had the Pork Roast Tenderloin dinner along with a dish of ice cream for dessert. I'm not much for Cajun food or a gazillion beers but could tell from others within my dinner group that they all enjoyed those selections. Waiter, Trevor, was exceptionally knowledgeable about the meals and drinks and able to answer every question asked... More

Well, not quite. But, the beer list booklet is 18 pages! There's also plenty on tap (be warned- tap beer must be less than 5% abv in SLC-Hence, lots of bots). Oh, the food: extensive cajun of all sorts. Kate had the Gumbo w/added crawfish, I had Hoppin' John. Everything was so good, we brought 10 friends (we were here... More

Great food, from their burgers & 50/50 mix of fries to the Hoppin John stew. Huge range of beers on draught - of which we felt obliged to try not a few. The Moab Brewing Company "Johnny's IPA" was particularly good - and we were able to continue sampling this during our time in Utah (tinned beer is usually pretty... More
