The beignets and shrimp ettouffee are amazing. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff! Their new patio gives added space and blends well with the Louisiana culture!

While we're used to offerings of a Sunday Brunch, Nina P's is delightfully different!! Saturday mornings, visit with the friendly folks at this local restaurant favorite...starting with a pitcher of Mimosas or an amazing Bloody Mary!! Great selection of regional favorites with some unique offerings...More
