This place is a must. Very authentic, decent prices, and you get a ton of food. If your trying to eat lightly, split something. Absolutely delicious.

I brought my daughter up for weekend campus visit. We always like to try new and unique things. Creole in the UP? What could be more unique? It is a little tricky to find, but worth it. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty and hot. Servings were plentiful. I've had Cajun/Creole in NOLA, and this is comparable. What... More

I came to Marquette, MI, to have a great Cajun meal. We shared fried green tomatoes with a remoulade sauce, and both were tasty. Tomatoes were thick cut but hot thoughout and the batter was thin and crispy; the sauce had some kick. I had red beans and rice with a sausage and my wife had shrimp and grits. Mine... More

This is an all time favorite restaurant! The food is absolutely phenomenal, but the service is even better. Eric and Zack, bartenders, make you feel like you are so welcome. Chef Nicole makes every dish to exception. This is a must stop if you are in Marquette. Their specialty is New Orleans style, but the menu is not limited to... More

My wife and I went there after a few interviews in the city, and we found the decorations to be very fitting of the theme, and we we were seated pretty quickly with a jam packed menu...lot's of options. Tried to get the alligator appetizer, but it was "out of season" said the server. I thought this was odd, as... More

I was very hesitant to go but I am so glad I did! It is a dive bar but I love divey places. You walk downstairs and you could hear the jazzy blues band playing, was greeted by a smiling wait staff helped to a high top and had a drink in had within minutes. We ordered the oysters on... More

Its a little hard to find because it doesnt have a large sign and its in the basement. However it is well worth it. Who would think that there would be authentic Cajun/Creole food in Marquette , Mich.? Everything from red beans and rice to catfish,to shrimp to alligator and frog legs. It is all prepared well. The atmosphere is... More
