“Interesting...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at about 6:00PM and were hesitant to go in. The parking spots closest to the door were available, and there didn't seem to be many customers. We went in, and saw a couple of people. A waitress told us to sit anywhere. We orderedv an appetizer of onion rings. They were the big cut onion rings and were nicely seasoned and nce and crisp. We enjoyed them! I ordered a poboy, half shrimp and half oysters. Wife got just shrimp. I had forgotten that New Orleans style bread for poboys was tough french bread. I won't complain about that, but there were other problems.

The shrimp and the oysters had no seasoning in the crust. The shrimp were very overfried and tough.

Other complaint was our waitress. A couple came in after us and got another waitress. They got their food sooner, got waited on regularly, and left way before us. We had to hunt down our waitress for drink refills, and the food took quite a bit longer.

Most of the customers in the place were elderly and were known by the stafg. That can be a good or bad sign.

As our first trip, we were left with the impression that they didn't care about us.

Since we only tried the poboys, maybe someone else can explain othet dishes, but we just were not impressed in any way, and wanted to leave.

“South Seas Travel loves D Eno 's !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Had a group dinner here prior to our cruise departure . Food was very good , especially the oysters. Very family friendly . Brandon the manager was VERY accommodating & checked on our group frequently. This is obviously a favorite of the locals ; as they knew many people by name. Crawfish delicious & large portion. Everyone's food was very good. Bread pudding was to die for according to my mom ! Not crazy about the small fried shrimp, which were cold but it was replaced w/ hot larger ones. Would definitely return .

“Quaint, family-owned little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

We have eaten here several times with family. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The restaurant is family owned and run. They seem to know most of their customers by name - lots of regular customers here. I had the blackened redfish last visit and it was quite good. I would also recommend the bread pudding for dessert. This is a nice local restaurant serving local seafood. I believe the name is more correctly spelled "De-No's" named after the husband and wife owners, Dennis and Noreen.
