Went there last night for the first time, but it will not be my last! The stuffed peppers, boudin balls, blueberry bread pudding and stuffed potatoes were the best!

We feel this is the best seafood restaurant in Baton Rouge. It’s usually crowded and has an upscale atmosphere. Every dish we have ever ordered here has been excellent. The fried crab finger appetizer along with the pecan fish are amazing.
