Great atmosphere, good service, fantastic food! Specials that were worth giving a try. Bubba's sauce and barbecue sauce were fantastic! Who could ask for anything more??

“Bar food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

No complaints, but it is just a bar setting with bar food. Okay bar food, but nothing more. The service was good which is always important. If this is what you want, by all means you should try it.

“Great food and drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Love the food LONG LINE to be prepared to wait in line or go at an odd time. Great drinks, casual atmosphere right downtown! Can wander the shops while waiting at least or walk across the street and gaze at the water. Love they have jello shots here to buy at the bar too!

“Great Gumbo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The seafood gumbo was fantastic. Made with good dark roux and chock full of seafood and just right amount of spice. As good as the gumbo I've had in some of the famous creole spots in New Orleans. If I had known it was that good, I would have ordered large bowl and made it my meal. Other items were pretty good too: hamburgers, burritos etc. But, the gumbo was the standout and worth going out of the way for a taste.
