We were pleasantly surprised that our friends took us to this restaurant. We ordered creole red snapper, creole combo, creole shrimp and garlic shrimp. All were scrumptious. The Johnny cake and the plantains were the best I've ever had. I can't forget the satisfying beans...More

I am not sure but I don't think so. I also want to say they only take cash. It is well worth it at any rate.
