“Great food with southern hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The pretty surroundings in this restaurant are upstaged by great food. The service is equal to the great expensive restaurants. I had one of their lunch specials for under $10.00. Good food served while it is still hot and at a fair price. What more can you possibly want. Good friends to enjoy it with and that is what I had. We all loved the experience.

“Great Father's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

What more could a Dad ask for? Kids (albeit in their late 20's), wife, great meal and a free 4-pack of great beer. Try the ribs or Breaux Bridge Shrimp Pasta and you'll leave with a full tummy and smile on your face.

“What a great Mardi Gras experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have been going to NOLA for years but not always with our kids. We really wanted to take our kids to Mardi Gras but we wanted something convenient as far as a place to watch the parade, food and parking and bathrooms included, etc. All of these things were offered for a very reasonable price including unlimited food on the buffet, 1 drink coupon, parking, bathrooms, a table with a waiter for 6 hours. Anyway - service was great and the food was wonderful!! The grits, the red beans and rice, the bread pudding, the blackened chicken and the thai ribs. All wonderful! Highly recommend for Mardi Gras! (I haven't been there just for dinner but judging from my experience - I think it would be wonderful).
