We are not drinkers so we always try to get there a little early to beat the bar crowd. They have the best seafood sampler platter and also the best gumbo that we have found in the area. They are both delish!

Saw the sign and asked questions about their quality of food and service? Found ourselves here and we enjoyed the opportunity to eat and get about seeing the people meander about this neat historical downtown! I believe the breakfast was $6.99! Well worth the money...More
