Came here for dinner while visiting family in the area. Great local business with friendly folks. Had delicious combo of fried shrimp & catfish. The servings are HUGE. It is a little pricey, but so worth it. It's always good to support local businesses.

Small place that has been around for years, even before Katrina. One of the last few pieces of the parish that holds onto the past and what we use to be. Just about everything on the menu is good but the best is their roast...More
