Besides the food being average I have never experienced such nasty service. From the waitress right down to the owner. Not impressed at all. Stay clear not at all what it is hyped up to be.,,

I've lived near this for awhile and just recently started eating here regularly. It can be crowded but the service is good and carry out is an option.

This place is top notch. The food is amazing. If you dig cajun food, this is a must go to. Great atmosphere for a shopping center.

The food was ok. Service was not very good. Needs a thorough cleaning - especially the carpet that sticks to your shoes. The smothered cabbage was still great. The jambalaya was just average with no finesse ( with mussels that were inedible ). Still packed.
