Visited for dinner - staff was really great, friendly, knowledgable and guided me thru the menu- helped me avoid an allergy issue - food was steaming hot in temperature and flavorful - I got more than expected from this casual dinner restaurant

“Atmosphere, southern/cajun food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

It was a pleasant evening so we sat outside. The soccer game was on and people were cheering for the U.S. so it was a lot of fun. Service was good as was the food. I ordered the fried catfish, a nice southern staple, and it was fresh and slightly spicy. My husband had pasta with an andouille cream sauce, also slightly spicy but not overwhelming.

“Hype,location, but not much else.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Four of us went for dinner, a Tuesday, not so busy. Service was very slow, nice, friendly, but slow.We had chargrilled oysters and crab dip for appetizers. Oysters were the size of a nickel with 3 medium size out of 12. Not fresh, and one I bit was "bad" you know if you've ever bitten one that should have been discarded, not shucked.Entrees were 3 different fish and one shrimp based.Nothing special, not horrible, but not worth the prices charged.Paid $150 for $100 meal-save yourself frustration and drive down to Fish Market- better oysters and prices.

“Take the conversation to the back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Some friends and I came in for a few drinks and food. As we entered there was no hostess nor anyone standing around, we questioned whether or not they were even open. After we sat at the bar for five minutes while managers and servers paraded past us without a word our bartender came out and apologized for the wait. While fixing our drinks we had to listen to the servers and managers prattle on to one another with conversations not appropriate for the front of the house. After being served our drinks we opted to grab a bite to eat elsewhere.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We went for a combined birthday and graduation lunch for a friend. Our server was very attentive and made sure we all got exactly what we ordered. She also described dishes well and the food was cooked as ordered and portions were good. The only complaint was there was a bit much breading in the Red Fish Burger that one of us had.
The complimentary corn muffins with peach butter were awesome! Fried catfish was perfectly done as was the shrimp and oysters. Another person in our party had a cheeseburger and their rosemary fries, said it was delicious.
Atmosphere was pleasant for the time of day and I'd definitely go back to explore more of their menu offerings.
