Arrived to restaurant with all parking in rear. Had been a shower and had to walk through mud back to front entrance. Order at desk but worker brings food to your table. Prompt service! One fried shrimp Po boy and one blackened shrimp Po boy....More

The place is small and doesn't seat many. The food was good, but I didn't like the ordering at the counter, then seating yourself. The shrimp were small.

GREAT FOOD!! A real surprise to have such good food. The decor is very rustic and relaxing with some walls with zinc and very old nonfunctional doors on top of it. Some walls with old barn lumbar horizontally and some vertically placed with taxidermy mounts....More

Crawfish bread was over the top good! Don't miss it. We also had the Zydepo Shrimp poboy which was delicious as well as their fries. Love the presentation. One suggestion: we were new and uncertain whether to take a table or walk down the aisle...More

We sat at the bar after ordering from the counter. Drink specials were amazing. Must have the crawfish bread...it was so delicious. Bayou wings (duck) were perfect. Finally, the crawfish étouffée was awesome. Darling place, warm and welcoming. Bar staff is fantastic. My only recommendation...More

Best Cajun selection around with excellent po boys and dishes - even tasty alligator. The food is spicey so if you don’t like it hot let them know when you order. Their most popular is fried seafood but they offer a good selection of “healthy”...More

The New Roads web site indicates they are open from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. We ended up there because another restaurant was NOT open on a Sunday. :) I would still check the web site and perhaps call during... More

It is not a buffet. You place your order at the counter and they bring it to your table.
