Don't go thinking you will find a fancy place. Go for the food! Take some gumbo home for the next day. It's worth the trip.

“Tiny shrimp”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The special of the day is very good and a great price. I tried the shrimp, though, because the sign said they had the best. I got 6 shrimp about the size of popcorn shrimp for $15. I was very disappointed. Maybe it was off season for size of shrimp, but I should have gotten more for the price. Tasty, but lacking in size.

“Best fried shrimp sandwich”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stopped in for lunch and were not disappointed. The shrimp loafs were great. More than what we could eat. The servers were friendly and attentive. There were several "locals" in there at the time, but as tourists we fit right in. Nothing fancy, but plenty of good food.

“The best shrimp !”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Wife I stopped here on our way to the culture center for lunch ! By far the best food we had the on our week here. While my wife and I both had the shimp we found them large and cooked to perfection . The fries were also cook nicley with a nice flavor. The wait staff were very friendly and treated everyone like family. Prices very reasonable. Make it a point to try it on your next trip to the area.

“Love Shrimp”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

They say by the front door, best shrimp around. They are correct. The fried shrimp are to die for and they are large shrimp.
