Older building in a well worn part of town. The food and service more than makes up for the location, You really have to want to have a good meal and service to find this old school eatery. The diners are mostly repeat customers and well known to the staff. We had lunch there on our way out of town. The store was almost empty when we got there but filled fast at noon. The food and service were wonderful, We had the seafood platter The gumbo was as good as I have had and the seafood was fresh and well prepared oh yes plentiful. I am a fan of George Rodrigue painter of Blue Dog art and noticed several of his paintings in the restaurant. The waitress informed me that the painter lives close by and dines frequently. He has presented several paintings to the owner and the owner has purchased several others. I didn't ask but surmised that the waitress had been at the restaurant for a loooong time. We will be back.
