Based on some previous reviews and the restaurant's own website, I was optimistic about this place and our party of 4 went with high expectations. The setting is pretty neat -- an old renovated U. S. Post Office with an incredibly high ceiling, neat old doors and many relics from the time it was in use as a post office. We were seated promptly and all the servers were very friendly and appeared very eager to please. Unfortunately, that about does it as far as positives. The food was just OK. The menu cnoices were fine, but reminded me of a Pappadeaux. We started with wedge salads. OK. We had a Big Fisherman's Platter (fried oysters, shrimp, stuffed shrimp, a lot of fired catfish and fried crawfish tails, all of which tasted just alike. One of our group had the fried stuffed shrimp. Same. A shrimp brochette (grilled) was a little better. The best dish of the evening was Redfish Pontchartrain, which was a nice redfish filet blackened and served on dirty rice. Our server wanted to be good, but just didn't have the ability. She felt compelled to swoop down and snatch any plate or saucer that became empty for any reason. We ordered a very fine wine for the two drinkers in the group and she had not idea what to do with it. She finally got it open, poured a tasting, and when it was found to be good she poured more than half the bottle in two glasses and asked, "Do you want me to cork it?" Oh, well. She really wanted to do a good job. Overall you would have to be unsympathetic to be highly critical of this restaurant, but you would have to be untruthful to say it was worth returning.
