Reviewed April 16, 2012

We almost didn't go due to other reviews on this site. Decided to brave it and were so glad we did. Fun place, busy and still got good service. Not outstanding but definitely adequate. Saturday night prime time we waited maybe 30 minutes and there was not a parking spot on the place, until someone left. Excellent armadillo eggs! I could have made a meal of that with some soup but had the jambalaya and brought home Sunday dinner. Hubby had a fried combo platter that was huge. Coleslaw was nothing special but we didn't have any room for dessert. Loved sitting beside the river watching the sunset. Would go again in a heartbeat.

“Fresh and fabulous!”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

Love the fresh, well prepared food, great atmosphere and friendly, down-home service:) One afternoon I asked the waitress to bring me her favorite meal, it looked great but was too much food for me so I asked her manager if it was ok for the waitress to join me if it was time for her break and we split the lunch. I was priviledged with great food, great service and great company!

“Venue on the RIver is Fun.”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Dining on the river is always fun and not too hot this time of year. We had boiled crawfish. The crawfish were not large but the staff were kind enough to prepare a special two pounds without the seasoning. The oyster po boy had an abundance of tasty fried oysters but the bread became soggy and the po boy had to be eaten with a fork. We will go again but probably not often.
