Excellent food, atmosphere, drinks and service. A must for everyone ! Parking is a little difficult but defiantly worth it. I tried Talipia with shrimp and dirty Cajun mashed potatos, it was so good , I win I' d ordered one to go to have back at the hotel. I highly recommend this place !

We stopped for dinner after a meeting and the four of us tried the seafood jambalaya, the chicken and sausage jambalaya and blackened salmon with red bean/rice. The food was flavorful and spicy. I prefer the spice and the Cajun flavor was very good. A solid recommendation from me for this Cajun delight.

I visited this restaurant with a group of 12 people. I had the jambalaya (chicken and sausage) with a side of vegetables. I can honestly say that I prefer a boxed mix of jambalaya to what was given to me. There didn't seem to be any spice whatsoever. Incredibly bland. The veggies were also completely tasteless. I'm pretty sure that... More

My wife and I ate here while staying in Saint Joseph and the locals recommended it to us so we said why not. What a surprise to find this awesome place and the service was spectacular. The food is the best part. We were amazed at how much it reminded us of New Orleans. The must try is the pork... More

It is worth the visit for the decor alone. Wonderful old building with tall ceilings and large windows. And the bar is huge. Hard to believe they brought it all the way from Philadelphia! Service was quick and efficient. We were able to talk amongst each other with no problem. Quiet even with some background music playing. Salad which came... More

We had one order of blackened catfish and one order of super jambalaya from the lunch menu. Both meals were piping hot when served. The catfish had good Cajun flavoring but was a bit fishy. The red beans and rice was good but a little bland. The jambalaya had a nice amount of peppers, sausage, chicken and shrimp. Unfortunately, the... More

My wife ordered a filet. She appeared to be having difficulty cutting the meat. I tried to cut it for her with her steak knife which the waiter later said wasn't very sharp...I was amazed how tough the meat was. You couldn't even chew it. Never order the "sirloin" filet. The shrimp ettouffe was good.

Thank James C
