Top notch lunch in what initially looks like a good old sports bar but which has a lovely New Orleans menu. Our seafood bisque was excellent as we're the two salad. One Caesar the other blackened chicken. All ingredients fresh. Copious portions. Fair price. Charming service. Outdoor patio was lovely. Definitely would go back.

Our visit here was long overdue. We'd heard great things and were not disappointed. Steven took great care of us and made some great suggestions on the entrees and especially on the dessert. I know it was seasonal but ask for the Grasshopper Mint Tart.

Delightful simple meal over happy hour (4-7)--Monday specials included half-price sandwiches, making our meal very reasonably priced. Offers New Orleans-inspired food without being too heavy hitting in this category only. Options include a large variety of sandwiches (muffuletta, crab cake, prime rib, etc.) and soups (gumbo, seafood bisque, soup of the day, etc.) as well as other entrees. Stunning bar... More

Would not have imagined I could get really good Cajun food in VA. Atmosphere was great and I wish they had something like this at home. The roux in the étouffée was not as dark as usual but the flavor was spot on. Red beans and rice and andouille were all good. Can't wait to try other items

I literally stumbled upon this place while exploring downtown Roanoke. I liked that they have a huge beer selection. I ordered a burger and fries and was probably one of the best burgers I've ever had. The fries were cooked perfectly.

Relatively new restaurant that came well recommended by locals. We sat outside under an umbrella and started with some cocktails. The Hurricane was awesome but the Gin Fizz was not correct and tasted awful so I sent it back- no worries! They do cool wine flights that are very well priced and a great way to try either the reds... More
