“Go for the music and dancing, not the food”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We wanted a place to learn to dance to zydeco, and this quaint, locals favorite, provided it. We had food, too, and it was all right--nothing exciting, but edible, interesting, and cheap. The real appeal here, and it's obvious from the locals who crowd in, is the zydeco and the decent-sized dance floor. We watched the dancing for a few minutes, thought we had the steps, and then a patron--who said he visits six times each year, driving all the way from Tennessee--asked us if we needed help. As it happened, we didn't, and we joined with locals for several rounds of Cajun two-step. If you want local flavor, want to know what folks in the area do for entertainment on a Friday night, this is the place. If you want haute cuisine, well, you'll be disappointed.

“Could have been better”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Getting in great. Service was very slow to non-exsistant. For the price of the food, it wasnt good. Oysters weren't done, jambalaya was DISGUSTING!

“Absolutley awful!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We should have turned away when we seen the building. I said to my family members "don't judge a book by its cover" how wrong I was. The food was almost un- eatible. My husband didn't order cause he was already over the fried food on our holiday.The steak should have been med- well done..it came out raw. so they refried it, $19! :( the garlic bread was just buttered and thrown in the oven. we sat at two different tables and they charged us gratuitiy of %18. $93 for the 3 meals and some drinks! then she didnt want to give me my change! hello!..would not reccomend this joint at all.

“So so”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

This place was OK. The fried shrimp was tasty and tasted fresh. The gumbo was a little bland. The live music was the best part. I'd come again and have drinks at the bar to listen to the music.

“I really wanted to love this place.....”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

staff was super nice. interior decor was interesting. food was not good at all!!! my gumbo was scorched, you could smell and taste it. fried shrimp tasted like popeye's. jambalaya was good. bread pudding had been heated up in a microwave, i guess from the night before. half was hot and half was cold. will definitely not go back.
