To start, there was only one waitress on duty and the whole restaurant was full. We called ahead and made reservations and once seated waited 20 minutes before even getting... More

The food was very good and not what you can otherwise easily find. Po'Boys with fried catfish, okra, hush puppies and Louisiana iced tea make this place unique. This... More

One would say that the lovely... More

When we first sat down we were a little uncomfortable with the prices but decided to give it a go because of the reviews. Thank goodness we stayed! They give you heaping piles of the most amazing spicy Cajun you will get your hands on! Dont miss this!

If you like great people and good home Cajon style cooking, do not pass this by. The owner is a wonderful woman, the chef(s) do a wonderful job of preparing her delicious original recipes. I could eat there every day if it was in the budget. Prices are very reasonable, portions are large and you will leave fat and happy.... More
