Wonderful dinner on our way through Slidell. Lovely ambiance on the deck outside, excellent service-very friendly-and very good food. Crawfish beignets were outstanding.

Food was slightly above ok, but the price was far too high..and portion size was.inadequate. Where the place excelled. however was in how abysmal its service is. I don't live nearby, so they don't have to depend on me for business.....good for them.

We stopped by for lunch and loved the ambiance of the covered deck over the bayou. The food was good but a little more expensive than we were expecting. In their defense I believe that they are more of a dinner destination and we were...More

On a girls’ trip to NOLA and stopped for lunch. I enjoyed the shrimp and cheesy grits. The entree was generous and reasonably priced. Service was terrific. The landscaping was quite nice and we enjoyed walking out back by the bayou.

Fabulous setting and wonderful, tasty food. Great for lunch out or evening date night. My only suggestion would be to expand the menu a bit. Although everything I've had there was top rate, I'd enjoy a few more choices.

I loved the food. I had some sort of fish with a seafood sauce topping. My only complaint is that the menu is sort of limited. If I went back often, I would end up eating the same thing over and over. Not altogether a...More

What a pleasant surprise. Stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. Right on the bayou with great atmosphere and Cajun music. They also have a jazz brunch buffet, but I might skip that. The grilled fish was very good. The gumbo was also the product...More
