“Good food - nothing special”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Pretty much what you would find anywhere. Good but not great. The write up in the AAA book made it sound fantastic. It is not that special. We did have some great local brew - made by Ghost River Brewing - which was the best part of the meal.

“Great food!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Recommend by two locals at the Drury...the food was great! The prices are good too. We went early, so the place was pretty empty. I would definately go back and recommend it.

“Authentic!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is authentic south La. food. My wife and I both had the catfish filets which were prepared perfectly; not overcooked or overseasoned. A lot of so called "cajun" restaurants think adding more pepper makes it cajun! We also took the plunge and tried the boiled crawfish. These, too, were just perfectly prepared. If you are looking for good food well prepared and tastes great, this is the place if you are in that part of Memphis.

“So-So”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The blackened catfish and hush-puppies were enjoyable. The catfish was on the spicy side, which I liked. I've had better fried green tomatoes but I've had worse, too. They are worth trying if you've never had them before.

The staff wasn't unfriendly but also lacked enthusiasm. It was obvious they were just going through the motions. The atmosphere lacked personality. Nothing memorable about the restaurant itself.

“It was ok”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

We had a groupon to this restaurant. It's been here for YEARS. It was pretty dead inside. The food was ok. Nothing to get too excited about. Our server was good. If you're in the mood for some fish it's an ok place to go. The catfish was good.
