“Great atmosphere, location, and Cajun food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

Cajun food in San Diego? Yes! Wonderful atmosphere--decorations, music, layout such that it's not too crowded, not too loud, but buzzing with friendly people. Service excellent but not overbearing with a choice of sitting indoors or the outdoor patio. Hushpuppies, gumbo, jambalaya, blackened fish or chicken were done very well. If you like it more spicy, they have a chili sauce you can add; also try their IPA from Louisiana which is perfect with Cajun food. Get there early and it's easy to park and no waiting. Very reasonable, great find for us locals.

“Authentic Cajun Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2010

Whether you decide on a hurricane or go for the awesome catfish, you wil not be disappointed. I actually lived in Baton Rouge and I can be quite skeptical reagarding so called Cajun Restaurants. This place reminds me of Drucilla's in the Red Stick City. Loved the service, met the owner and his wife who did whatever possible to make our experience perfect. I will be back for seconds.

“Best chowder and hushpuppies ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2010

A classy but casual place with great blues playing in the background. We love the chowder and hushpuppies most, like no other. Entrees are a touch pricey but what I have had was very good. Nice bar plus outdoor dining if you like. One of our favorite places.
