Building and interior colored all over with crayons. However, the food was reallly good. If you like a thick and hearty gumbo, this is the place for you. LA food in FL and some of the best in the Destin area in my opinion.

This place is small but the food was really good and the service great! Smashes potatoes were great as were all the sandwiches we tried (grouper, catfish, cheeseburger)! Calimari and okra were r favorite appetizers. Everything came out really hot and fresh. We ate there twice on our recent vacation.

We went this week to get a quart of gumbo to try. The guy at the restaurant said it was great, and talked us into a gallon for 48 dollars. He said that a lady gets there at 2am to cook her secret recipe. She should keep it secret. It was terrible. No flavor, no identifiable meat. I think it may have been sausage that crumbled in my mouth, but I'm not sure. It must have sugar in it as well. We brought the terrible taste to the management. They told us that they could not do anything about it. We bought it and they couldn't take it back. We bought more than we originally intended on the guy's assurance that it was good. Seriously, do not order the gumbo. As I write this review, there is a beautiful picture of gumbo over rice posted at the top. In no way did our gumbo look anything like that. Mahi sandwich good, fish taco good.

After a recommendation to this little family restaurant we fell in love with the food and atmosphere. You can dress up or dress down, eat in or on the patio & have some great New Orleans cuisine. Try the fish blackened or bronzed, fish tacos were good too!

This is the first place we ate while vacationing in Destin. The menu was in our condo and we chose it over Pompano Joes strictly on price. There is not a lot of parking as it shares a lot with a condo so we had to ask to make sure we parked in the right area. Once we got there, we realized it was in walking distance of our condo.. Our kids loved the atmosphere... It is a mix of diner/redneck.. It reminded us of The Shed BBQ place with the signs and overall decor. It wasn't the cleanest... Didn't look like the floor under our table had been swept in awhile. The food was good and it was a relaxed atmosphere. I had the shrimp poboy.. Very good. Two of our girls had chicken Alfredo and we brought the leftovers home.. They ate on it for 2 more days. We will probably go back in the future. It was the kids' favorite restaurant.
