This is a small, casual restaurant that packs AMAZING flavor! The gumbo is simply outstanding, and if you're lucky, they may have homemade heavenly hash ice cream!

Excellent Cajun food. I ordered the Jambalaya with oysters. Could not have asked for a better meal. Been to New Orleans twice and it was even better than there. Had to bring the leftovers home but ordered dessert also. How can you not order Pecan...More

Excellent Cajun food, pasta and seafood. The gumbo is the best I've tasted outside of Louisiana. The only issue is that it's a very small place with a small kitchen, which limits the menu. I would love to see what they could do with jambalaya!!!

Food is good but too expensive. Creole plate with 6-7 shrimp is over $17. Two people with sweet tea comes to $40. I don’t see this place lasting long with the prices which is too bad because the staff is super friendly and the food...More

Well thanks for giving us a try. I glad you liked it. But, unfortunately we can not drop our prices all of our seafood comes from the gulf so it is a little bit more expensive for us to get. All in all if you...More

We stopped here for lunch recently and were thrilled with the authentic cajun offerings on the menu! We paid a bit more than we would normally pay for lunch (it seems the same menu/prices apply for lunch or dinner); but overall were so pleased with...More

When we returned to Hendo after 7 months away, we were delighted to find a Cajun restaurant! Food is authentic, plus they make their own ice cream. Owners came here after Hurricane Katrina hit the bayous, so the food is authentic. Great service, too!

The menu is expanding, yet there is still improvement needed in that more entrees are offered, and a healthier selection of side dishes. A large slice of grilled garlic bread would be a great improvement over the small thin slice of dry bread offered with...More
