“Cajun in a down-home style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Definitely not fine dining! Cavernous room with plastic covered tabletops but the Cajun cooking was great!

Try the pick 3 - catfish was superb, fried oysters and stuffed crab were very tasty - not greasy or overly breaded. Chicken sausage gumbo was just what we had hoped it would be!

If you want authentic Cajun and don't care about ambiance, this is the place. Watch carefully when driving as you will miss it the first time past, and with Houma's one way street system flanking the Bayous, it's easy to get lost!

“Local Eatery with Energy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Not totally our cup of tea, but take a breath and choose wisely and enjoy Houma & it's food. Waitress must have been related as she she looked and acted miserable.

“Simple but Tasty Food, Clean Restaurant, Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stopped here for lunch before a swamp tour. The restaurant is simply decorated but very clean, the service was excellent and they had a nice selection of local offerings one would expect at reasonable prices. You are best in ordering local dishes which we found to be tasty. They have an autographed picture of Oprah and clippings from Bon Jovi after Hurricane Katrina as well as others. It took us a few turns to find the place using our GPS.

“Did not like”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

A local place that received positive reviews. We found it to be unsatisfactory. The combination seafood plate was prepackaged deep fried food that was not very god, but expensive. Crawfish etoufee was bland.

“Simple, tasty Cajun cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Loved the crawfish etouffee. Absolutely delicious. Delicious bread pudding (sort of like a pineapple upside down cake). Good fried catfish. OK seafood gumbo. Average raw oysters. Excellent, caring service. Would return!
