A rather good cajun meal for being in the Midwest. I ordered the red beans and rice with andoille sausage and it was quite tasty. My wife had crab cakes and they were also quite tasty.

I was excited to take a couple of friends here because I have enjoyed dinners here four or five times previously. Tonight's dinner was an off night. We had nice appetizers, the boudin balls and fried pickles. But, our entrees a were just so-so. Shrimp creole was thick and sticky, shrimp Diane was flavorless, fried catfish was fishy. Even the bread pudding dessert was too heavy. Our server returned my plate to the kitchen and brought some gumbo, but it was too salty/spicy. Just an off night.

Came here based on a rewards program and this is the first time I had a bad experience. Came after lunch time so it was slow. Their drink menu was not right on what was on draft. I have family from Louisiana and have had good Cajun cooking. I understand this is the middle of Missouri; however, if you are going to do a themed restaurant, they need to do it right. Gator bites with the sauce were very bland. The Fried Oyster Po Boy had a sauce that was not recognizable. The Po Boy is a staple: DO IT RIGHT.

I am not a professional chef; however, when you see something and expect something that has taste, give that to the guest. The po boy is simple and they got it wrong here.

We were shopping and saw the signs. We thought it was fast food but when you step in it is a sot down restaurant. That was a pleasant surprise. They start with bread slices and herb butter. My husband had shrimp creole and jambalaya. I had blackened chicken, new potatoes, dirty rice and vegetables which was like a stew. Very unique and had several items for someone counting calories and lots for those that aren't. It was a pleasant surprise to even be able to order a smaller plate. The appetizer options were amazing. We saw a big plate of onion rings come out. If we weren't so full we wanted to try their beignets. They have stuffed ones that you can place fruit items or chocolate inside. Yummy. We want to come back for dinner.
