Had a small family gathering brunch to celebrate my son's special event. I have met the owner and his wife. They were very pleasant and accommodating in helping me to plan my brunch. The food was very good and the staff was very helpful and accommodating to all of our needs! I would definitely dine here again and suggest this... More

Where do I start? Start with the best they have: The New Orleans medley with a bowl of gumbo on the side! Folks you don't know good cajun food until you've had Selena's wonderful offerings. Yes, there is blackened catfish, catfish fingers, and plenty of other unique offerings, but the New Orleans Medley is what this place rocks! I've been... More

We had out of town guests visiting - it was their first time in Louisville. As we have eaten here numerous times, we decided to take them to lunch. It was most enjoyable and did not disappoint!

Very hit or miss. First time there 6 years ago was great. Now seems it is in decline. Get the waiter that is a pro wrestler and minister and you still get awesome service. Others are very aloof and don't offer much 'service". I've had red wine spilled on me (not my wine some other tables wine that waitress spilled... More

We had a family dinner here during Derby week and it was just thoroughly enjoyable. Great food and service and a very friendly waiter. Lots of martinis, fried green tomatoes, cup of soup, fried crab rolls, wilted spinach salad with fried oysters, and etoufee. All just wonderful. Very friendly atmosphere

I've been here for brunch a few times now and never had a negative experience. Everyone is positive and happy. It's a great way to start your morning. Also, the food is amazing! I love this place!

Love this place. We were in town for a visit and eat there twice in two weeks. The menu is full of great choices. the fried green tomatoes are the best, the calamari so good. The service was excellent. Nice wine selection. We had dinner with old friends and could not have had a better time!

Went during Derby week with party of 5. Ok environment but the food was not good. One person ordered a grouper special and the fish was tough even after it sending it back to the kitchen. I ordered the sampler of Red Beans, Jambalaya and Etoufee. Really soupy and not great. Everything tasted the same. One person had a steak... More

Two of us in area at lunch time and stopped in for a quick bite. Special on the menu today, seared salmon, what a great choice and the sides were tasty too. Hope is on list for next visit!
