I ate lunch here while serving jury duty. It is within walking distance from the courthouse. The service was speedy and the price and serving size was good for a shrimp platter. The shrimp and fries were bland though, and the salad it was served with was literally a bagged lettuce mix with bottled dressing. I also ordered the potato salad and it was bland. Would not return unless at the courthouse for some reason.

Located next to the Jefferson Parish Courthouse so this is obviously a restaurant for those that work in the Parish buildings; however, in any other location it would be a typical neighborhood restaurant. The menu is a mix of New Orleans favorites – including seafood – with a dose of Italian. I had the daily meatball and spaghetti special. The salad was an uninspired heap of lettuce with commercial dressing, but the meatballs and sauce were very good as was the pasta. Service was above average. Prices were good - $10 for lunch - and there are daily specials listed by the front door.
