“Great Cajun food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for Cajun food and haven't been disappointed. I had kind of shrimp cakes as starter and "The Best of Louisiana" as entree: Gumbo and Jambalaia, really good and tasty. We sat at the wide opened doors and could listen to the street musicians. Nice place. Would go again.

“Great oyster bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The oysters were fresh and delicious. The menu has many options for those that like to sample several things at a time. No wait time to get seated and the atmosphere is great to people watch.

“Really good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This could have been a bad experience but the Manager made it great. I ordered a bloody mary with my brunch but it never came. I chose to ignore the fact our waiter forgot it since I didn't really need it. But the bill had a charge for a bloody mary. After I asked the waiter to remove the charge, since I never got it, he did remove it and the Manager still brought one over for free. I had the Taste of New Orleans dish and it was really good. I recommend this place.

“Food Good, Service Needs Work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Four of us were promptly seated in this busy restaurant on a Saturday evening at a nice table in front of the open window. The tables are a little small for 4 people, but then this corner restaurant is small. Our server was prompt and friendly. I ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer and the shrimp creole, and my friends ordered raw and broiled oyster appetizers as well as their main courses. My appetizer came out after my friends had almost finished their oysters. The main courses were then brought out before I had even made a dent in my mushrooms. Since the tables are small, it was unwieldy to move my appetizer aside to make room for my shrimp creole. Nevertheless, I managed. The shrimp creole was very good, slightly spicy, and just the right size. I felt pleasantly full but not overstuffed. I asked the server for a water refill two times, and he never brought it. I finally took my glass and went up to the bar and got the refill myself. For dessert, we all shared the bread pudding with a Frangelico sauce. It was delicious! The restaurant needs to work on the timing of the courses and refilling water glasses.

Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. We apologize that we dropped the ball on the timing of your courses. We will strive to do a better job next time. However, we are pleased that you enjoyed our shrimp creole and our famous homeade bread pudding. We hope to see you next time.

“Perfect Char-grilled Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This place had the best chard's, they were plump and super fresh. The shrimp and grits were very hearty and seasoned to perfection.
