Was seated rather quickly. Floor was sticky. I ordered the triple play shrimp it was ok just lacked salt and flavor. For the amount of food slightly over priced as expected. Band was ok only because I haven't listened to much Cajun music

I was so disappointed. To find a place this close to the hotel with so much history. I was excited and was ready for some real New Orleans cuisine. Instead the BBQ shrimp was just worcestershire water and overcooked shrimp. My wife got the seafood...More

We found this location near the convention center as we walked to get our half marathon packets. Starving and unwilling to wait we stopped here to eat. Large place willing to take groups and lunch crowd. The service was fast and friendly. The menu is...More
