The gumbo is good. The seafood enchilada had tons of seafood in it, but it was just like any other Mexican enchilada. The salad with grilled catfish was good but the dressing (which was the house dressing - some kid of poppyseed ranch) was spicy and after awhile the heat built and it was too hot- but that is a personal opinion.
Having said all this - the food was basically good. The service was excellent and the atmosphere casual and pleasant.

St. Francisville is rich with many things but short on a good selection of restaurants, but this one is about the best in town. Every meal I have ever had here has been more than satisfactory by every measure, although sometimes during exceptionally busy periods, there may be waits, and I've had to ask for ketchup more than once on occasion, but overall, this is a good place, with a very wide selection of food. Very few other choices, but this is really a good one.

Took 90" to get food; gumbo wasn't tasty , fajitas were cold, the "special" was replaced with something else without being told; in general, very disappointed

We came in about 2 pm and they were still packed. That is a sign of good food. And we were not disappointed. The portion was just right and the taste was outstanding. The service was very friendly but a little slow. I contributed that to how busy they were. We were served by a couple of different servers so it went pretty good. Just seat yourself and enjoy your meal.
