my future daughter-in-law and I went for lunch. The pub itself is charming and my lamb sandwich and pinto & porchetta soup were very good. I was thrilled to learn that although they didn't have sweet tea, they did have simple syrup in the bar! The service was not very good. We waited for nearly half an hour, then had... More

We visited this place recently and true to its name there is a good sized porch if you wish to dine outside. If not they also have plenty of indoor seating. The menu wasn't huge but the food was good. We started out sharing a half portion of the Cranberry Salad. It was supposed to have cranberry dressing on it... More

I love love love the Swimming Angel, chicken breast with a Thai Peanut sauce over spinach and rice. Perfect flavor, a little spicy. I try to order something else for variety but I always come back to this. My husband loves the Gumbo-warning it is very spicy.

Went here after round of golf at Avondale; surprise known to locals who seem to crowd into the place. Have to say, the gumbo I had here was as good or better than anything I've had in New Orleans. Others seemed pleased with meals. There were 12 of us, and the waitress handled our large group with ease for our... More

I took my family of 7 here for a bite after finding it on TripAdvisor. We had two adult meals and five kid's meals. My pesto pasta was AMAZING. The kids meals were just OK. The kids were disappointed that there were no children's burgers on the menu and they complained that the chips that came with the meal were... More

We stopped in for lunch well past the busy time. There were a few tables occupied, and 2 servers, both of whom seemed very lackadaisical. Our food was average (ordered a sandwich and the shrimp patties), and the atmosphere was very "sandwich-place-near-the-lake". It may be better than our experience showed, though, so we'll try it again sometime.

A local secret , set on back on a golf course with deer scampering by. They have a menu with locally grown food delivered daily. There's never a time that something is out. With a selection of cuisine for everyone's taste.

A relaxed, neighborhood full service restaurant and bar. You may eat inside or outside in either a screened-in porch or in the sun. The menu has something for everybody and is reliable. The service is good, unhurried and children are welcome. Set on a quiet semi-residential area. I have never been there for dinner but lunch is enjoyable.

In winter I used to meet friends there. It is a local gathering place. very comfortable and friendly. the fish is usually good, the drinks are excellent and the staff is friendly. It is right off the golf course and a little out of the way for tourists, but if you have time take the drive, its nice and casual.... More
