“Local Creole Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is a little gem in McMinnville that serves pretty good Cajun/Creole food. My hubby loved his catfish dish which served Blackened and Buttermilk fillets. The okra was a little over fried, but still had a good flavor and served with a delicious sauce for dipping. My Crawfish Etouffee was delicious and spicy, served over delicious dirty rice. The table next to us was served a po'boy that looked awesome. I had a tasty tequila drink that could have either been cheaper in price or more volume for the price. Nice mixology on the drink though. Liked the atmosphere, and had good service. Will be going back to try the oysters on another visit.
