Good not great. Really liked the boudin balls, but the breeding on the generous portion of fried fish was not my favorite. Had to ask for the pickled tomatoes that supposedly came with it - maybe they think you would not want them if you're not a local? I would give it another try however

We're so sorry you weren't a fan of our batter, Brian, and we promise we'd never withhold pickled tomatoes from any of our guests on purpose. Glad you spoke up about that mistake so we could fix it for you, and we're happy you liked our boudin balls and big plates! It's good to know you're willing to give us another shot, and we'll be looking forward to really impressing you then!

Best,
Louis and Ollie, Owners

We arrived at the restaurant about 2 o'clock. It did not appear to be very busy. We were seated right away but it took more than 10 minutes to put a drink order in. And then we probably waited another 15 to 20 minutes to order. We are not sure what the problem was as people came in after us and were waited on. We ordered the Crawfish with a side of gumbo and red beans and rice. The Crawfish was spicy but not overly. We also had a spicy Bloody Mary which was very good but overpriced. Our overall opinion was the food and drinks were good but the service was beyond slow for no apparent reason. Would try again just for the food and in hopes the service would be much better.

Thank ShelTrap

Sorry to hear the service was slow. Would you, by chance, remember your server's name so that I can get to the root of the problem to get it corrected?
