Had a great Sunday brunch for ten people on Fathers Day. Food, service and the Bloody Mary bar were all top notch.

“Blackened Catfish - yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I went here for the first time with a friend who had been numerous times. She said it was "hit or miss" with both good and not so good meals. She was up for going back and giving it another shot. I'm pleased to say that our meal was quite good. We both had the blackened catfish sandwich with sweet potato fries. They also had a good local (Kulshan) beer on tap which was nice.

I gave this a four instead of five for two reasons. One is that the fish portion could have been a little more generous. The other reason is that our waiter never checked back with us to see how/if we liked the meal until after we were almost finished. I used to be a waitress and one thing I learned is vital is to check with your customers right away. If something isn't right it's too late to find out after the meal is done.

That being said, I would definitely go back. Would like to try more of the menu items.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

This restaurant is in the older part of Bellingham and has great character with the quirky decor and floors. The food was outstanding! We had oyster shooters, crab cakes, the special which was shrimp and steak and a classic - shrimp and grits. Each dish tasted so good and also different from the other one. We had a bit of a wait to get in but they took our number and called us when our table was ready which was great because we could wander down the street and look at some great murals on the walls. Once we were seated, the service was quick and efficient. We will definitely go back!

“Really love the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

They are closed on Mondays!!! If you love Cajun style meal, this is a place to go. Reasonably priced for generous portions.
