the 4 of us couldn't decide what appetizer to try so instead of ordering meals, we ordered one of each of the apps. Every one of them was delicious tho all seemed to agree that the bbq shrimp and the fried green tomatoes stood out as the best choices. I've had the seafood platter there before as well and think...

Went here for lunch on a Sunday. We were seated right away and staff immediately took our drink order. Our waiter was so nice. He took my son to go find Pokemons in the restaurant. I ordered the mahi topped with scallops. Fish was a tad over cooked but very flavorful. Scallops were cooked perfectly and delicious. My husband ordered... More

One of the best views possible, sitting on the outside porch under the fans overlooking the beautiful lake. Service is usually very good and the servers are helpful in selections off the menu. The fried green tomatoes are hard to beat. The salads are crisp, cool and oh so tasty. Full service bar for what calls your taste buds.

We had out of town guests and my brother-in-law suggested the restaurant. We went early on a Friday afternoon, 5:30. No wait for the table, excellent service by Craig. Fried Green Tomato with shrimp as an appetizer was larger than expected. Big enough for generous serving for four adults. Snapper Pecan was excellent, husband's steak salad was big enough to...

We ate here while visiting last October. Earlier that day we had the most wonderful breakfast and was looking forward to some great Louisiana seafood. The deck was nice but the clientele was very "seasoned". The food was a disappointment. Everything seemed fried and was bland. The prices were high especially for the food we were being served. This place... More

We love the atmosphere across the street from Lake Pontchartrain. Excellent Trout Audrey and other menu choices. Wonderful for holiday or just plain Sunday brunches. Very good for families. Good parking.

We received good service on a busy weekend evening (and they were quick to accommodate us without a reservation). Staff was friendly, and the food was ok; but more on the average, forgettable side. I can't remember what I ordered for dinner that night but I don't recall thinking the food or the ambiance was worth a second visit. Good... More

I told the waitress I had celiac disease and asked if they had an understanding of what a gluten-free diet was. Her answer was " I am not a dietitian " I then asked if I could speak to the chef and her answer was " What do you want to eat? " after I told her she then said... More
