“Good food, but poor bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The food is consistently good, but so is the warm beer! We eat there fairly often have never had a beer that was served cold! It is barely chilled and we do not understand why they don't serve draft beer. The food is pretty good, but don't expect to get a cold beer to go with it!

“Great lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Visited this restaurant with a large group for lunch last week. We had several appetizers - fried pickles, fried mushrooms, jalapenos and onion rings. You should see this stack of onion rings, it was huge. Everything was very good, but I ate too much fried stuff! For meal I had a cup of Jalapeno crawfish chowder and a fish taco. Both were very good and I would definitely have them again. You definitely get your money worth in the portions.

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I had a crab cake and it was delicious. It was spicy so if you do not like spicy food you might want to choose something else. My co-worker had a salad and enjoyed it.

“Difficult to Get To But Worth It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had a hard time getting in to the restaurant parking lot because of the divided road out front. But, I am so glad we did. The restaurant is very attractive and the staff was wonderful. Our food was very good. The onion rings are truly homemade and delicious. The cheeseburgers were cooked just right and tasted great. Our waitress could not have been more accommodating.
We were travelling and this was well worth the stop.

“Burgers & Crawfish, oh yes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

This my second visit and it was just as good as the first. From the moment we walked in till we walked out the experience was great. My crawfish light and crisp, the etouffee, just spicy enough. The husband had the outlaw burger cooked a perfect med rare. If you get a chance substitute onion rings for the fries. The fries are really good but the onion rings bring back memories of long ago. A little pricy but when combined with service & atmosphere well worth it.
