“My favorite Louisiana eatery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

I can never travel through Lousiana without a stop here! This time, I was traveling with some women on a plantation tour and stopped on our way back to Texas.

I had the crawfish cornbread which was as good as I remember! I paired it with the grilled veggies which were delicious as well. My traveling companions enjoyed the shrimp and corn bisque, crab cakes, and étouffée. All were fantastic! We ended our meal with bread pudding.
This small and charming spot has become a delicious tradition. I find I'm always recommending that people stop when they're driving through! I don't think you'll be disappointed!

“Lovely Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went for a brunch unlike any we have ever been to. A Zydeco brunch, music and entertainment. The food was wonderful. The BBQ shrimp was to die for, the gumbo truly Cajun. Grits and Andouille fab. This is a great place to see, eat and see celebs.

“Take out teats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a very popular location, and we did not manage to have a meal on site. We did though call in and collected 4 starters involving crab and other lovely dishes. They were delicious and at no cost the kitchen put in our bag 2 bowls of gumbo, realy good.
