The fried shrimp are the best you'll ever have! Huge, tender melt in your mouth. Very popular spot. A must do.

“Crawfish Pistolettes....Mmmmm!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Good Lord, those things are tasty...so is everything else at this place. Want to save a few bucks? Order a big plate of something, and split it! Their portions are big enough. Get the banana pudding for dessert, and you are set.

“Good food and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

A popular place for the locals. The food is well- seasoned and tasty. My husband and I both enjoy eating here. It's located right off I-10 and so very easy to find. Definitely worth a trip if you like seafood. The only thing that I didn't enjoy was the noise level but, perhaps, it was just the time of day that we visited.
