“Great food”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Have tried most of their food and all of it is very good. A lot of it is creole which I think is wonderul. They ask what level of heat you want in your spice. Unless you want your head blown off, pick 5 which is still hot. Our favorites are the pan roast combo and the chilled seafood platter. Caesar salad is huge so you will want to share. Goes well with the steamed mussels or a shrimp/crab cocktail.

“Really great place!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Cajun seafood at its best. Just a little place in the back of the casino area with really great food. Nothing better than sitting there with a great "pan roast" combo, a glass of white wine and just people watching. Crazy stuff.

Anyway - you won't be disappointed. If you are brave - go for the oyster shooter!

“No Gambling Here”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is my favorite seafood place in the Phoenix area. I have been here about a dozen times and it never disappoints--especially the gumbo and seafood creole, which are fantastic. It's an odd little place, tucked away on the edge of a smokey casino (though not as smokey now than when I first started going there a couple of years ago). I have literally gone out of my way to get back there again and again. It has a few tables, but I prefer sitting at the bar and watching the dishes prepared right in front of me.

“Not a Restaurant!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is a bar that serves food. Would have liked to have tried their food as the posted menu was intriguing but being located directly inside the very smoky casino I doubt if we could have expereinced the true taste of the food.

We have eaten here 4 times. My husband likes it here. I did not enjoy myself as much because the smoke smell was bothering me. Caesar salad was fine. My husband likes the gumbo and the creole. I had the shrimp. Oysters were fine. Ocean hurricane drink was good.
