Had the red snapper, which was delicious. Good portions. Good southern cuisine. Nice quiet location. Great for a romantic dinner or for business guests.

Happy 20th Anniversary to us. My darling husband treated me here for our fun date. We did have an awesome time. Even got a pic with the Chef. He is top notch. This place overlooks the bayou and is phenomenal. Has an outdoor dining option as well as indoor. A dock & pier. Fantastic.

As I said. wonderful setting, great food - not a lot more to add other than the menu is creative and the atmosphere is charming. Highly recommend for a gathering of friends or for a special romantic occasion.

They were both packed with flavor, good portions, and made me want to order more. The deserts were bread pudding and the chocolate wall. I have to say, it was an excellent... More

I went there for Valentines Day. They were very busy, yet we got very good service. A stroll in the park next door after dinner was a added delight.

Incredible atmosphere and food! Such an unforgettable experience! We both chose something different than we normally would. My husband usually gets steak and I get salmon, we got the fish of the day and puppy drum here. I had to look up some of the ingredients but I don't think you'd be disappointed if you tried anything on the menu... More

We went to lunch with our company CPA. Lunch was delicious. We went in not knowing what to order and our great waitress talked us into the days special. It was one of the best meals I have eaten in a long time.

I have been there for meetings and dinner with family. I like how intimate it can be and also how there are rooms for big groups. The food is prepared and presented beautifully as well as delicious. The food is fresh and flavorful. The variety of seafood, meats, and pasta meals should take care of everyone. Beautiful views of the... More

Nice location on the bayou. Food was very good. Bar was simple and not a deep choice on liquors. That was disappointing. Way to basic at the bar!! Service average!!
