“Really good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch. I got the Taste of Louisiana, very tasty, Gatorade bites were delicious, corn bread moist, jumbayala, gumbo and red beans and rice were good. Wife got the Apple Salad she said it was really good.Son got the Pimento Burger, medium well, was a little over done. Staff was really nice. Had one beer. Total was around $43

“Great atmosphere and great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Great flavor and authentic seasoning as a former resident of Louisiana. The portions are large and the Lobster Ravioli is EXCELLENT! We were there too early for entertainment but was there last year and enjoyed the jazz/blues music they offer in the evenings. The price is right and the drinks are strong! Highly recommend and finish it off with some excellent beignets!

“New Orleans in North Carolina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great surprise and authentic foods. Loved everything we ordered, which was at excellent prices. This restaurant is a hidden gem. The only dislike was the feature dessert was entitled bananas foster; however it was really banana bread pudding. We will definitely return and bring our friends.

“Don't expect New Orleans flavor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

New Orleans style seasoning is bold and full. I think the only seasoning in this restaurant's kitchen is SALT. No bold flavored. The food was bland and salty. The Hurricane drink was great. The musician was good but so loud that voices had to be raised during conversation.

“penny wise, pound foolish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had a great dinner--she-crab soup, crab cakes, salads, corn muffins, all for $38. Then the waiter served us instant coffee. That's too ridiculous for words.
