“Good Seafood Restaurant -- Very Good Service, Great Food!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

During several recent stays in the French Quarter, I have eaten lunch or mid-afternoon meals at this restaurant at least four times. Each time, even though I do not drink alcohol and I also have no desire to watch "sports TV", I have chosen to sit at the bar for my meal, rather than taking a seat at a table, simply because I wanted to be seated and served more quickly, and I wanted the more informal and casual atmosphere of sitting at the bar, which, at this restaurant, is a very long bar!

During each of my four visits to this restaurant, I have found the menu, food and service to be very good. The bar staff are quite attentive to customers, and the food is served quite quickly once it has been ordered.

I have ordered and eaten big juicy hamburgers, Cajun/Creole dishes, including gumbos and jambalayas, and also two of their Po-Boy sandwiches, and all were very good. I have also sat at the bar and eaten a large amount of raw oysters, and the oysters were large, fresh, and tasty.

I wil definitely return to this restaurant durng my next stay in the French Quarter!

“Great Find... Elegant Atmosphere... Casual Dining”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Found this little gem walking the streets of New Orleans. Slid up to the bar & started with fresh shucked oysters. Then pleased my pallet with turtle soup (with a touch of sherry), traditional red beans & rice with crawfish étouffée. Definitely making it one of my top sites when I revisit.

“Great Food”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were very pleased with our meal. I had the shrimp and maque choux grits and it was wonderful. My husband had the frog legs and he said they too were wonderful. The servings were good sizes - they didn't skimp. Would definitely go back.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My boyfriend wanted a good shrimp salad so when we saw it on the menu, we stopped. I ordered a chicken dish and was very pleased. The food was excellent and the wait staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I loved the atmosphere-quiet and laid back.
