We stopped here as a last resort option to grab dinner, and we are glad we did. The food was delicious!

Ok so after being to NOLA and Shreveport I can unequivocally state that this place blows then entire state of Louisiana out of the water. Absolutely ridiculously amazing food. I'm am internally crying because I couldn't eat more. Best gumbo I've ever had.

Such a pleasant surprise. Fried green tomatoes and charbroiled oysters appetizers were awesome. The grillades and grits and drum fish were excellent. The pecan tart was wonderful. Beignets were just ok. Service was great and had great recommendations. Sunday night 3 or 4 course meal was such a deal!! It was awesome. Bourbon lemonade was a yummy drink a well.

We were in town for a convention, and chose this restaurant due to its proximity to the hotel. The biscuits and pepper jelly and the chicken & sausage gumbo were excellent. The bread for my fish poboy made me feel like I was in New Orleans. It was delicious. I would highly recommend this place for a business lunch or... More

Decided to bring some colleagues here for what was supposed to be an excellent happy hour only to be majorly disappointed. It began when I ordered a round of Stella's only to be told that they were out and also out of most of the beers on tap. I was left with only tap beers to choose from and not... More

I went with a friend for dinner and the food was great. Serve was good too. It is a block away from the convention center. Chicory Coffee and desserts were excellent !

The location is excellent if attending an event at the conference center and the service was very good. There was a three course lunch and I had the oyster appetizer which was a bit salty. Surprisingly, the shrimp ettouffe would have benefitted from more flavoring. The chocolate cake dessert was all right. The venue was great for reconnecting with friends.

We were in town for a conference and came as a family of 4 (kids 8 & 10) on a Sunday night and loved the place. The servers were super friendly with the kids and excellent overall. I even saw our server sprinting out after a lady who had left without her purse. There was a live jazz trio and... More

Very friendly staff! Drinks are $5 and snacks start at $5 also. The trio deviled eggs are a great starter and taste awesome. Then the cracklings are very well seasoned a little spicy and a very large amount to share with 3 or 4 people. Once we sat for the dinner the manager from New Orleans brought us a basket... More

Appetizer was really good, Entree was ok but was "rushed" to our table. Service was fine until we were asked to leave the table 1h 40 minutes after our reservation started. Sorry guys, that's not good enough. 2 h per reservation is a minimum.
