Went there for the BBQ Shrimp and wasn't disappointed. This was our first meal in NOLA and set the bar pretty high. The service was excellant and our waiter really made some decent suggestions. I loved how the bread came out in an individually wrapped paperWe decided to have a bunch of different appetizers. The BBQ Shrimp was the best (Compared it to Deanies and NOLA). It was messy but I think that was part of the point. Fried Oysters were also really good. I would return if given the opportunity.

Food and service were amazing. The signature shrimp dish was worth the mess and it was a generous amount of food.

Got a table in the back through the kitchen. Staff were helpful with suggestions. Mid price range with a good menu range of seafood and meat dishes

These shrimp and grits? Amazing! Best meal I had in NO and best shrimp and grits I've ever had! Mixed berry cobbler was worth squeezing in as all well. Don't waste your time with their Bloody Mary, but everything else was absolutely amazing!!

In New Orleans for business and pleasure ... and dining solo. I really appreciated the friendly service ... and the wonderful food. I started with the tasting soup trio - gumbo ya ya, seafood gumbo and wild mushroom - all three were good but I think I favored the seafood gumbo. Followed the soup with the bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp with creamy yellow grits and red-eye gravy - wonderful taste experience. And the creamy grits - lots of cream and butter - mmmmm. And I really enjoyed the bread pudding with irish whiskey sauce - much lighter than most bread puddings. A glass of wine and coffee brought the tab to $55 ... pretty reasonable considering the quality food and service. And as a solo diner, I felt welcomed.
