The menu had some great options. Food was superb. Staff was nice and friendly. One thing i liked more than anything was the wait time. Packed house and still got my order without haste 5 stars isnt enough!

Great service and great food. Wish I had tried the crab special, they looked amazing. The crab claws and homemade sauce was excellent. The po-boys are huge!!!

Whether you are looking for boiled seafood or fried, this is the place. Crawfish, alligator, shrimp, oysters, this is the place.

Very good seafood at good prices! The waitress was great! Maybe have a little more seafood options that aren't fried is the only advise I would give

My family and I came here for a late lunch on 9/24/2016. I loved the look of the place, and it was a tradition in my husband's family to always come here.

This place was only half full. We waited over an hour for our food ( snow crabs). The waitress forgot my gumbo. Oh by the way, as I type this, I have still not received my crabs. I told the server to box them to go! Horrible service, horrible service! Do not come here!!

My Mom, 76 loves boiled crabs, this is the place to go for choice blue crabs and Dad loves seafood platter. The service was great also, if the crabs weren't full of meat they would bring you another. I myself like boiled shrimp, and crawfish when in season, the food was delicious! Good location, choice seafood and great service
