Neat modern southern place. Friendly owners, great food. Catfish was breaded while we ordered, Okra was good crisp and seasoned. Homemade coleslaw was creamy and good taste. Has plenty of seating, including outdoor patio. Nice find on our trip

Order "very good food" at the counter and dine on a delightful patio. Blackened catfish was excellent, as were the sides. And they have a good wine list. We will come back for the gumbo and jambalaya.
