We ate on the Mama side-seafood. It was all fried. Service was good and the staff was very friendly. Really loud music from the bar area and I am too old to enjoy that but the food was fresh and reasonably priced.

We stopped in for a late lunch after arriving to the area. Although it's a clean & friendly place the food wasn't very good. We ordered a shrimp & a catfish po-boy. Fries seemed to have been cook a while prior & reheated. Although po-boys were Ok, they were not great. Lacking both in taste & quantity of meat on... More

Went in for blues band and drinks. Band was amazing. Server was very nice and was also our bartender but after ordering I was unsure. Didn't know what a Moscow was. "I can make a margarita " ladies ordered a chocolate martini which ended being 8 ounces of Bailey's

After a disaster at Mama's place, we walked next door to Papa's place. We were told the same folks own both restaurants. We were greeted and seated quickly. Waitress was nice and friendly. We ordered the hamburger steaks. WOW! The biggest I have ever seen and was absolutely delicious. Drinks were refilled quickly. A great place to eat and if... More

The food is excellent, I recommend the burger. Staff is friendly, but the location is small, as is almoat eveything on Front Street. Its a good place to go hang out with family or friends, enjoy good food, a drink, and just enjoy the area

We enjoyed all of our food. They have so much to choose from. Great family atmosphere. My husband and I ordered the seafood platter and the grandchildren ordered hamburgers. We all enjoyed it. Glad we found this restaurant.

Thank angelkfire
