This was our first time at this venue. The place intrigued my partner, who grew up largely in Louisiana, and as such is very familiar with those cuisines. We were both very happy with the experience.
The food selection is quite wide, ranging from many seafood options, po boy sandwiches, and even alligator-meat dishes. I kept it simple with a chicken po boy and cajun potatoes, and we also had an order of hush puppies. All of it was delicious, which is great because I normally am not a big potato fan. Their spice blends were potent enough to give a deep flavor but not so overpowering as to make me clamor for water after every bite. Thankfully, our server was great at keeping our waters topped off. My partner and her son both really enjoyed their meals, and she remarked that the taste was very authentic from what she's used to in southern cooking.
Our server was a bit soft spoken but overall quite good. She helped us add an order of beignets at the end of our order, and as mentioned, was good about keeping water topped off and asking for any further requests.
The building is an open space with some second-floor seating available. It's decorated nicely and has a lot of Louisiana-related scenery on the walls. My partner remarked on the way out that they even had some of the same food mixes for sale that she had used in the past. It was a nice touch.
For three of us before a tip, it came to just over $45, which was very reasonable considering the niceness, uniqueness, and quality of the venue. Granted, we all just had water, and we avoided some of the pricier $20+ dishes. The extra food made for great leftovers as the spices they use help maintain a good flavor. Parking behind the venue is close and convenient, although at $0.50/hour. It was a great experience and we would definitely come back again.
