Presentation of the entrees were low. When people eat out they look for a beautiful meal to be placed in front of them. Looks like low quality diner food. Tje food taste ok. They also charge for a second syrup.

Had the crawfish and shrimp etoufee omelette (Saturday special). Was good (though a bit boring versus the description). Son got an order of pancakes and he liked them more. Longish line but the service was very good/homey. Prices totally reasonable.
