Description: Every now and then you find a place to eat that is truly special, where the food is great, the staff cares about you, a local funky joint with that true Austin neighborhood feel. Where you can bring the kids or or come out for date night with that special someone, catch some great live music or watch the game. It's a relaxing, casual atmosphere with seriously good food. Whether you're in the mood for something healthy, something naughty or you just want to fulfill your Louisiana cravings - we've got you covered - a Kid's Menu, a Full bar and Happy Hour 7 days a week! All of our food is made from scratch from our famous Crawfish Etouffée to our salad dressings to our sumptuous Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce. We are a Zero Trans Fat establishment so even when you're eating bad, it's still good! We offer fresh fish, flown in daily, our chicken is raised with no hormones or antibiotics ("never-ever"), delicious loacally-grown, organic veggies, and if you come to our New Orleans brunch, you'll enjoy organic, locally-sourced eggs plucked from pasture-raised chickens!

“FABOULOUS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

BEST Cajun food in town. Made it there last Tuesday for the crawfish boil. Fabulous eating. Almost as good cooking as my Papa's. They come real close. Had to go again on thurs with hubby. Had the catfish over dirty rice topped with crawfish ettoufee over it all. Heaven on a plate. I LOVE the food and the service. Wish I could go out more often. Will forever be a loyal customer. Bev

“Nice bistro style restruant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Went on recommendation of staffer from my Austin Office and was really good. The BBQ shrimp and Blackened fish was very good. Our server was very pleasant and not overly attentive. When we went they had a live jazz group that reminded me a little of upper Bourbon Street in NOLA

“Excellent menu of choices and good service too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The menu is chock full of choices that even the pickiest of eaters would be happy here. The service was prompt and accommodating. The food was so good, we went back two nights later for a second meal. The Shrimp Platter with fries is loaded with big shrimp lightly battered so that the flavor is full of shrimp and not just batter. The Shrimp Pasta Rockefeller was so delicious that I want to try to recreate the meal at my home. Too bad I was in town visiting and that I couldn't make this a regular place. Definitely will go back when I'm in Austin again.
