An update to my prior review, last two visits were terrible. First time three of us went for dinner, orders came out one at a time. Mine came out first then we waited my wifes came out about five minutes later then about 15 minutes later my mother in laws order came out. By this time I was finished with my dinner and was uncomfortable to eat then just sit while the others ate. Last night my wife and I went for dinner. WHAT A NIGHTMARE! Ordered two shrimp poboys, after 25 minutes questioned waitress about order. Was told they lost order, while regiving our order another waitress came over and said they found it and it was packed to go but here it is. Been sitting in styrofoam container for no telling how long, fries were soggy, shrimp were cold. Told waitress she said sorry will get a hot fresh order right out. 30 minutes later we FINALLY got our order. We were there for over an hour waiting for two sandwiches. The two tables next to us were having the same issues. We all started talking while waiting, that is how long it took to get food.Table behind us said same thing happened prior Friday night but they were going to give it another chance. This was going to be their last visit. Asked to talk to manager and were told he wasn't there. On a Friday night seems like they would care enough to be there. Was offered a dessert for our trouble, guess what never showed up. Another waitress offered "something" for our next visit again never showed up. Later called the manager/owner and he acted like he could care less. POOR POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE.

A must visit for the gumbo lover. Made with a hearty dark roux. I had the shrimp po-boy with the seafood gumbo and it was more than I could eat. You order at the counter and then food is brought to the table. The dining area is bright, clean, and tables are not crowded together. You will not be disappointed with your visit.

Went for dinner to try the "new" place, was very happy we did. Food was very good, got the bayou platter (fish and shrimp) can get it fried or grilled. I got grilled and it was good. Wife had a shrimp poboy, is was good also. Bread was really good. Looking forward to going back and trying more of the menu selections. Price a little high but as long as quality stays good it's worth it.

This was our first time here. Food was favorable. The fish tacos had a nice kick to them. You can get your fish grilled or fried on any of the fish dishes. Good size piece of fish. A little on the higher price range for the type of food.
