OK, big surprise, I got the boiled shrimp. They were pretty tasty; I could of used a tad bit more spice, but it was still good eating. Our waitress was super friendly and when we had to send our frys back because they were cold, she didn't hesitate and she didn't lose her smile.

We were given the name of this restaurant at our hotel and boy was it a great suggestion ! I had the Shrimp and Crab salad and it was delicious. Our server was excellent but the restaurant is very noisy. Overall, would definitely visit again if in the area. I thought the prices were very good as well.

Family, casual place with a great variety of seafood. Food was fresh and reasonably priced. We got off the main highway for a local place - it was a good choice.

I only took gumbo and boudin. Both were good, particularly the gumbo. Excellent waitress. The premises are average and very noisy.

We had a huge plate of crawfish, which was spicy and delicious, and at a fare price. Many locals recommended this place and they were right, its worth trying if you´re at Houma. The shrimp were great as well, service was quick and there´s a good family vibe in the restaurant.

Stopped in for a late lunch. It seems that the name has changed to The Shack. We were seated right away. The dining area was very clean. The staff was very friendly. The grandkids had popcorn shrimp and an appetizer that had fried fish, shrimp and crawfish tails. The wife and I had the Shack Jr, which had fried fish,... More

This is a place that the locals eat. Not your typical chain restaurant. The charbroiled oysters topped with crab was among the best I have ever had, anywhere in the country.
