“Awful Service. I'm seriously shocked this place is rated so high!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Maybe the bartender was having a really bad day, but sorry, you can't treat people like that and not get a bad review. He ignored my friend and I - wouldn't even give us an opportunity to order food or settle our bill. We've never been treated so poorly. Too bad we never got to try the food. The glass of wine we had was actually pretty good.

“Do not believe the good reviews! This is not the 7th best restaurant in the dells!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Our experience was terrible. It seemed like something that belongs on Kitchen Nightmares. The staff was arguing in front of the customers and seemed poorly managed. Our server was nice and provided good service but she didn't seem to really like where she was working. The food was bland and you don't get a portion size that reflects the high price. The table clothes were covered in plastic which made them sticky and unwelcoming like they didn't want to get their table clothes dirty. The decor is over the top and does not add to the dining experience. I will never go there again and if things keep going the way they are I think they will be out of business. I highly doubt they have any repeat customers.

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Having dined in the New Orleans many times over the last 25 years, and experiencing the good, bad, and ugly, we decidied we wanted to try this restaurant. By far, this was one of the greatest dining experiences I have had. The owners, Sam and June, native Louisianna residents, were delightful and welcoming, the waite staff very courteous and helpful, and the food was phenomenal. After a recommendation from our waitress, Kelly, we ordered the the Sambo Catfish Special which included 2 exceptionally large catfish portions stuffed w/crabmeat, topped with money (pronounced monet) sauce, 4 extremely large shrimps (prawn level in size), a generous portion of fried green beans, homemade coleslaw, red potatoes. The portions were appetizingly large, the presentation was delectibly tantilizing, and the taste was amazingly perfect. Compared to our numerous New Orleans dining experiences, this one rates top. The cost for the meal for two was also a bargain.

“Four menu picks and four winners.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We loved our shrimp, crab, crayfish po-boy, and shrimp po-boy sandwiches. The food was flavorful without trying to knock you sideways with hot sauce. The portions were generous without overwhelming you. The staff was very friendly and responsive. This is the first restaurant we've been to in many trips to the Dells that we will go out of our way to dine again.

“Good Authentic Cajun Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Went here on our first nite in Wisconsin Dells and we were mostly pleased. Ordered a Shrimp PoBoy and loved it, while my wife got the Jambalya and ate every last bit or it. The Hush Puppies are a good choice for a starter, while the Bignets are an amazing dessert. The service is top notch, and while the place may need a little sprucing up, overall I would rate it a winner. A lot of the items on the menu are spicy so make sure you ask your server it you don't like that kind of thing.
