On Market Square in downtown Pittsburg, a nice option for dinner featuring cajun cuisine. Great outside seating, inside, nice looking bar and table area. Service was spotty throughout the night but food was excellent. Great Jambalaya. Great dessert. Very fair pricing for dinner in a major city.

Nice locale, good atmosphere, very good food. My daughter tried gator for the first time, and said it was the best steak she had ever had. The food was very tasty and well prepared. All around very good meal, if maybe just a bit pricey.

Enjoyed a nice dinner outdoors on the patio. Had the fried green tomatoes which were my favorite!! Also had the pork sliders and voodoo fries. All delicious!!! Nice selection of beer as well. Service was pleasant and welcoming.

It's on Market Square in Pittsburgh so you can enjoy eating outside in the sidewalk seats along the park or inside in the bar atmosphere. I love the food at this restaurant. You have to try the catfish. It's so moist and flavorful.

I lived in Baton Rouge for 20 years and my wife is from New Orleans, and this is by far the best Louisiana food we've had outside of Louisiana. We had the red beans and rice, jambalaya and gumbo followed by the bread pudding for desert. The bread pudding wasn't genuine Louisiana and they actually refunded it on our bill... More

Had the Alligator appetizer. Good, but very salty. Had the Gumbo and it was excellent. Po Boy Pulled Pork was above average. Great service and was reasonably priced. Would go back again.

Stopped here for lunch. Nice resultant. All the staff was very professional. We had oyster and catfish poboys. Only thing I would change: I'd recommend that they pour draft beers in pint glasses, no smaller glasses.

Not a bad little place, quite literally on the market square. They try a little hard but the food's good and it's a nice atmosphere
