“Closest to authentic New Orleans cuisine for miles”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The food was delicious and fairly priced. Can't get the selection of authentic New Orleans cuisine anywhere closer to home that I know of. Staff was amazing and very friendly.

“OK but not great”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Ordered gumbo all around as we were not overly hungry. Came with some nice sides of potato, sausage, and toast. Unfortunately, it tasted like it came out of a can. Even my children recognized this. No one in our party of five particularly liked it. Service was great, alligators were fun to look at, but the gumbo was just not very good. Left feeling disappointed. Maybe should have tried something else.

“Ok”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Not sure if I have high standards but not really impressed. I solit the seafood for 2 platter and was a deep fried overabundance. Just was too crispy and too much breading. The potatoes had a nice kick. I really dont think this place is special. Waitress was pleasent. Owner came by to say hi. Decent decor of New Orleans but that's about it.

“a lot of reviews here are bogus”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We LOVE cajun food. The experience we had was consistent with a tourist area. BAD. The glowing reviews are to be taken lightly. If you know Cajun food, save your money. The place is expensive, (great service), and the food is TERRIBLE.

“Great Cajun for the Midwest!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

So it is not New Orleans, but it is the closest thing for us in the Midwest. The kids got brave and tried all kinds of great food like crawdads, froglegs, and calamari. Definitely a lot of tasty cajun spice! Be ready! The kids got beads when we left, and enjoyed throwing pennies in the O'Briens replica fountain too.
