“Entertaining evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Back home visiting for the holidays, and decided to take four teenage boys out for local seafood. Fun, low key, MardiGras atmosphere, and the food was great too. I think they enjoyed the cornbread too much before their food came out. (No need for appetizers). The hungry boys all had the gator and not one of them cleaned their plate -- lots of food. I had the shrimp/scallop combo with fried okra and hush puppies ... also great. Glad we called ahead, because the place was packed (with locals). The entertainment was uniquely southern and amusing. The talent sang, played the banjo, the slide, the drums and he was particularly engaging with the kids of all ages, and gave my crew just the right amount of grief. For a low key, fun and unique Cajun dining experience, this is it. If you have a large party, call ahead!

“What happend?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We were so excited to share one of our favorite destination restaurants with our friends. We stopped in on a recent weekend afternoon. We were embarrassed after the drinks came out and still hopeful the food would redeem our choice of venue. Not a chance! The food was horrible also. The fish sandwich portion was too small. The crab stuffed shrimp a joke and overcooked. The Muffaletta, a bad ham sandwich on a bun. We will not be back. If you go, enjoy a draft or something simple and the atmosphere.

“Great atmosphere, great food.”

My wife and I drove by while looking for another place that was recommended, and decided we had to check it out! Are we ever glad we did! Excellent food, reasonable prices, and just a great atmosphere over all. So glad we found this gem!

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

We had awesome dinners - étouffée for all four of us! Delicious! The music was fun and entertaining. The musicians pulled diners up on stage to play instruments along with them. Lots of energy!
