This Shrimp Po Boy is loaded with shrimp. And the sweet tea is terrific as well. Oh, and the Beignets are excellent! Went back to my cabin at Wildlife Gardens, stuffed after dinner. Highly recommend both of these places!

We stopped in for a late lunch. Only patrons in the place. The two employees there continued their conversation for a few minutes before acknowledging our presence. Took quite some time to be waited on. Food was average. Will not return.

We often take food Togo from this restaurant. Delicious homemade chicken and great fried shrimp po-boys. The atmosphere is fun with live music often. Great for out of towners looking to see some Cajun culture!
