We ate here twice, once for brunch and once for dinner. Really enjoyed the eggs for breakfast, eggs whites and veggies, with hashbrowns. For dinner, the crawfish salad was very nice. I would go back.

Came here for a conference, was quickly attended too and had good conversation with the staff, especially Jessica. Made the dinner more enjoyable. They make a good sazerac as well
