“Great Louisiana food in Bethesda, MD”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nothing fancy, not showy, just good old honest food. Good selection of the traditional Gumbos, PO' Boys, and rice-based dishes (including, of course, Jambalaya. Good selection of beers as well.

“Average Cajun Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We really had a taste for Cajun cuisine and tried this restaurant. The decor is reminiscent of a New Orleans restaurant, but the food was only average. Everything was under-seasoned and bland.

“Don't go here!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

It's sooooo bad!

Honestly, it's like bad cajun cafeteria food. I did a review on Yelp a few months ago and it never showed up, so I kind of forget the specifics, but I just remember I got crawfish etouffee and my bf got some other rice dish (not an etouffee) and they were pretty much the same. Same poo: rice, then gravy poured over (not flavorful at all) then totally unseasoned meat. My crawfish was rubbery and blaaaaaand. All we could do was laugh.

I don't mean to be mean, but this is seriously AWFUL.

“Average Cajun”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

The food is average. It would be better if they used better shrimp in the jambalaya. Boudin sausage appetizer was delicious though. If you are a fan of Cajun cuisine, you will be a little let down.

“Love the breakfasts”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We visit from Scotland each summer and always have breakfast here. The french toast is to die for.. as is the Po' boy. Very genuinely southern.
