“Food was nothing special”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I had hoped this would be a good stop for lunch. We ordered the crab cakes. I didn't expect a lot of crab meat at that price. But the cakes were lacking in flavor. Just a lot of breading and not very tasty. Our soup was better but still not great. We will look for another place to stop next time. Service was good.

“Two Good Meals in 3 days”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I ate here twice in 3 days and both meals were good to very good. The first meal I had a Bowl of Seafood Gumbo (about $12) and it was good but I wasn't wow-ed by it either. It had a thin roux and to be honest, I could have used more shrimp & seafood. On my second visit, I ordered a blackened catfish sandwich that was spot on. The restauarant is very decorated (like a theme restaurant) but it passes the test for cars in the parking lot. I asked several local people and they seem to eat there too. All in all, worth a stop.

One offbeat observation: the bathrooms appeared recently renovated and were surprisingly upscale like a nice hotel.

We have eaten here in the past. So when we hit town it's our first stop. We have never been disappointed. Service us not up to par but it was late afternoon.

“Wrong Dish”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

They brought my wife the entirely wrong dish, when we said something they tried yo pass it off as the right dish. By the time it was all straightened out everyone else had eaten. Very bad service.
