The restaurant is a warm, welcoming space, with a downstairs with performances, and an upstairs balcony. Food is different from any in Schenectady, with definite New Orleans flair.

This restaurant better do something about the quality of their food. I got a pre prepared frozen fillet (likely from Sysco) covered in bland cornmeal. There was absolutely no flavor at all. Prices are way too high. I have never had a worse meal.
