The crawfish gumbo was good but the crawfish ettouffee was bland, perhaps would have been better with the blackened catfish. Plenty of beer selection, and waitress was quick, informative and pleasant. Served quickly around 5:30 pm on a Tuesday night. Would go back .

I was excited to get to go to one of my favorite places to eat. I enjoy the atmosphere and the service is usually very good. Two of us ordered the Thursday BBQ rib special and one ordered a Cajon dish. We waited for quite awhile for our food to arrive but did not think too much about it as... More

Being new in town I was excited to see how SLC did cajun and I left very dissapointed :/ Both the jambalaya and gumbo looked great but they were bland! Having been with a party of sixteen I had a taste of everything...still, I would only rate their food 3 stars. A long wait is to be expected on the... More

Everything is high quality here and the staff is very friendly. Obviously, people come from far and wide for the beer list but the food is just as fantastic. They've got a working combo here. I hope it continues.

The voluminous beer menu was an impressive sight, but having already been to the great Squatters, another brewpub nearby, we were disappointed with this place. The service and food were both lackluster, and the room temperature was way too hot for a comfortable leisurely meal.

Recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. Friendly staff, good beer and good food. Went in on a Friday afternoon for some appetizers and drinks, and it was very relaxed.

My friends and I go here just hang out to the live bands. My favorite is a group called Chalula, like the hot sauce. Service is always good and fast. I have tried the Margarhita pizza, it was okay. The ravioli was quite good. We usually just get chips and salsa instead of real food. It is a fun place... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel as we were looking for something within walking distance. Food choices are excellent as are the wide range of craft beers ,and the house wine (red). The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and gave tasty recommendations ( like Cajun seafood bites--nice & tangy ). And all the people seated around us... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and it did NOT disappoint. It's in a great location right off of State street. To begin with, the beer menu is huge with many local brew options. I personally do not drink but I often entertain friends who do and I'd definitely bring them here. I ordered the blackened salmon... More
