I rated this restaurant average b/c we're talking Bay Area. in other parts of the country it might well get a very good. I did adore my shrimp creole, which was well spiced, very flavorful and had lots of tender shrimp, accompanied by rice and green beans. My sister's catfish with hush puppies were over-fried and catfish overbattered. The crayfish etouffe and the bbq shrimp rank in between. Not a gourmet paradise, but the shrimp creole is definitely worth checking out.

I anticipated this establishment for 2 months. Super excited when I arrived with 2 other coworkers. The staff is very friendly but things went sour quickly...the food is under average food. I was not impressed and for the foodie that I am I was hoping for so much more. My plate looked like something from a hospital with pureed sides of something that I couldn't even tell you what it was. It almost looked like vomit on my plate( I ordered the fried chicken) the only thing decent was the chicken and I felt I could have spent 5 dollars at KFC and had exactly the same thing...pretty sad right???? The staff was super busy at lunchtime. I was told by my waiter that there were "only 2 waiters today"... that explains our 15 minute wait for drinks/straws/napkins. We were never asked if we needed anything or how our food was...It seemed like the staff didn't even want to look us in the eye ...afraid we would actually be the patrons that we were and ask for things...DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE..go to the local KFC or just buy yourself a 5 dollar footlong from Subway...I wish I would have

We tried to get a reservation 5:30 and 8:15 only available. We called in a take out order, when we went to pick it up several people we walk ins and got talbes, when we asked about the walk ins we were told that they only reserve a small number of talbles and most tables are for walk in or call ahead. We would have like to known this we would have eaten in the Kitchen

Not a meal for anyone counting calories! The red beans and rice were outstanding and my shrimp was terrific. I sampled the mac and cheese and it was very tasty as well.

I had dinner there on a Tuesday evening and didn't have to wait for a table. A group of friends had to wait half an hour on a weekend evening.
I tried the baby back ribs and they were very tender and tasty. Highly recommended.
