We stopped here by chance while on a road trip. Everything was very good. The shrimp and crab appetizer was especially good. Service was also good. We will come again.

Loved it! Staff was friendly, prices are reasonable and food is delicious. I had the lunch special. It was a seafood baked potato, filled with sautéed crawfish tails, fried shrimp, and loaded with a cheese au gratin.

This place is hidden just outside of an already small town (Ponchatoula, Louisiana). I travel constantly over 20+yrs and eat out everyday. THIS place is worth stopping at. They have good food, courteous Staff (mostly local College students), and optional outdoor seating.
