A group my friends and I ate here the other night and they got the shrimp and grits and duck wraps and said they were excellent!! I on the other hand am a super picky eater so I just ordered the cheeseburger and fries. Well, I have to say it was the best cheeseburger ever!! It was cooked perfect w/ sharp cheese and "duck jam" and the fries were cooked in duck fat w/ coarse salt--we all enjoyed them! Anyone who hasn't been is missing out!! The atmosphere was cozy and Cory walked around saying hi to everyone too. Great job Cory! Loved it!!!!
ps the Pim's drink was very refreshing--had fresh cucumber perfect cocktail

A wonderful surprise of a dinner spot. Just happened by the restaurant and it was so inviting. The bartender was very personable and the drinks were great! The Duck Wraps are a must have appetizer. Dinner was fabulous! The Chef even made a round around the restaurant checking on everyone. I will definitely be back my next trip to Monroe. Thought about trying lunch tomorrow before leaving out!

This restaurant is a hidden gem in North Louisiana. If you're on a budget, go at lunch. The entrees are around $8-$12. The atmosphere and service have always been great for us.

We understand these guys got the chef from"Sage" (one our favorites until he left). We stopped in for lunch one day, and it was very nice. I ordered the fried oysters and they were nicely done.
