It was great to have some interesting brunch items such as eggs Benedict on an artichoke base or the blackened salmon eggs Benedict. There are Cajun specials for those so inclined - andouille sausage, crabs, etc. There is not much atmosphere but the food and...More

We always come when soft shell crabs are in season, because my wife loves them here. Reasonably priced po'boy. I had 1/2 fried oyster and shrimp po'boy--also pretty good. Beer prices are very good. Service good.

I was dying for some beignets and they delivered on that need, but aside from that, the dishes lacked soul. The food was competent and it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t bursting with Louisiana flavor. The service was very good, but I won't be coming...More

Bad atmosphere. Bad food. The only explanation for it being open as long as it has been- It must be a front the mafia uses to launder money. (That is a joke)Really terrible.

I've been eating fried catfish my entire life. (I will not share just how long that is). The catfish was perfectly seasoned & cooked, served piping hot & moist. The Hurricane(s) were delish! Run don't walk. You love it too.
