“Great local atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 5, 2010

Dinner here was one of the highlights of my trip to Houma. It is nothing fancy, but a genuine Louisiana dining experience. This is primarily a lunch spot, and is only open for dinner on Fridays. I went because I heard that they had live music. The band was four guys playing what I can best describe as Cajun-influenced country. Accordian, keyboard (playing mostly bass rhythms), lead and rhythm guitars (and for a while, a woman playing the triangle). For my meal, I had one of the evening's specials; fried catfish and shrimp stew. The catfish was deep fried, and pretty tasty. The shrimp stew was served over rice, and was marvelous. I had a side of cole slaw that was good, but the string beans appeared to be canned. The staff were very friendly and the place was immaculately clean. The only drawback for a beer snob like me was the poor selection of brews. Overall, this is a local atmosphere not to be missed.
