“Unassuming surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

A nondescript strip center restaurant packed a surprise taste wallop. Specials almost every night on food and drinks. Tuesday is shrimp night: boiled, grilled, po' boys. The po' boys are especially good because of the light and crusty bread that is imported from New Orleans. We also like the Greek salad with grilled salmon. The full portion is enough for two people. Menu items included non-seafood and non-Cajun dishes, although we haven't tried any because we love us some seafood.

“Surprising find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We had the spinach and artichoke dip to begin. The flavor was good, but you could tell there was a heavy amount of butter due to the oil on top. My wife had the pot roast since she isn't a Cajun lover. We didn't expect a Cajun restaurant to have good pot roast, but it was very moist, tender, and had great flavor. I had the crawfish etouffee on white rice. The dish had a healthy amount of crawfish in it thought it would have been nice if there were bigger chunks of meat. The sauce was a more balanced etouffee and I tend to like them a bit spicier. I also would have ordered it on dirty rice next time. Our waiter was friendly, fun, and was full of colorful descriptions of the dishes and recommendations. Overall a good place.

“FABOULOUS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

BEST Cajun food in town. Made it there last Tuesday for the crawfish boil. Fabulous eating. Almost as good cooking as my Papa's. They come real close. Had to go again on thurs with hubby. Had the catfish over dirty rice topped with crawfish ettoufee over it all. Heaven on a plate. I LOVE the food and the service. Wish I could go out more often. Will forever be a loyal customer. Bev
