Louisianna inspired food. Had the fried shrimp and ettouffee. Both were excellent. Prices were fair. Staff was very friendly. Had live music when I went.

The food was OK but they're a bit steep on prices and they're very hard to find! The address posted on most sites is wrong. Doubt we'll be going back.

Found this little spot by accident on our honeymoon and was just what the doctor ordered. We stayed all night... great open mic night on Tuesdays with amazing music and even more amazing people. Food was suprisingly delicious since bars don't have the best reputation...More

Despite featuring in Savannah's Concierge dining guide it was VERY disappointing. The chowder was so thick you nearly need a knife and fork to eat it. The place was not very clean and I get the impression they are geared up for the later night...More

I think it would be fine for an earlier dinner. There are TONS of restaurants on the water, though. You can always pop in, look around, and decide to move on to another place fairly easily.
