We stopped by on our way to New Orleans and had a great lunch. The shrimp basket was awesome, the house salad was good, and the service was great. We even bought a jar of Shrimp Basket Gourmet hot Sauce.

One of the most enjoyable dinning experience I have had in a long time. Taylor was outstanding server and Star, the mgr, made sure everyone in the restaurant was having a good experience. Will be back as often as I can.

We stopped here based on reviews on our drive from New Orleans to Mobile. The food and service was fast. Our food (shrimp tacos and a shrimp po boy) were hot and delicious. Would happily stop again!
