“Best Cajun Restaurant Outside of Louisiana”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great food.. everything is spicy even the cajun mac&cheese. Kids was glad it was spicy because they were able to splurge on the lemonade and Fanta. Love the poboys. Good but not great french bread. Would recc to others and been there many times.

“Authentic Cajun food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Not a formal, stuffy, white linen establishment, but REAL Cajun food prepared and served very well. Great appetizers, excellent crawfish etouffe, efficient, friendly service. Very small room, so recommend reservations. If you really like Cajun food, you'll love it!

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

The CrawMac&Cheese, étouffée, fried catfish, fried crawfish tails, and jambalaya are delicious, written in descending order of awesomeness. Service was prompt and extremely friendly. The waitrons were expert in their suggestions of both food and wine. (I wish they wore name tags so I could compliment them by name!). The only "downer" is that the other patrons were very unfriendly -- it was downright wierd, given the close quarters and seating arrangement so very appropriate for Louisiana. Oh, well -- I guess you can't make customers get in the spirit, just sell them the food and hope they'll get it later. We will be back, and particularly plan to bring our Cajun transplant friend along. She will love it, and will get those other "NoVa" patrons communing in no time!

“THE BUGS ARE COMING! LIVE CRAWFISH!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Went to their outdoor patio for a real Cajun crawdaddy boil! It was OUTSTANDING! My wife and I couldn't stop eating them--and we didn't have to--ALL YOU CAN EAT! ($40) We "pinched the tail and sucked the head" of over 12 lbs of those critters! Brian, the owner, is doing some cool things there too like an "open carry" night (Wed).
Cold beers, great food, fun place!

“Loved this place”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

My sister and I stumbled on this place because we saw they had outside seating on a beautiful day. The wonderful surprise was that the food was amazing. The fried oysters were magnificently memorable and the Chef's special lunch, etoufee topped with fried catfish was incredible. We loved our helpful and engaging waitress and enjoyed our chat with the owner who was smoking some meat in the outside area as we ate our lunch. This was our first visit to Leesburg, and I know where we will be having lunch on our second trip! Next time you are in Leesburg, go here!
