Great location. Hence why it was busy. Food price was reasonable and the service was excellent. Best part was the live music. Would go back!

The smell of the boiling crawfish grabbed us by the nose! We had an early dinner and the food was absolutely wonderful. Every plate that walked past us looked like it could feed three people each. Although stuffed to the gills after eating, we were thankful we had leftovers for later. I swear it was even better!

We happened upon this place and being Northerners didn't even know it was Crawfish season. None of us had ever had them, and were pleasantly surprised. Our very cute waitress Yana, showed us how to eat this delicacy and since they looked so ugly, we were apprehensive. But then were amazed how good they were. Feeling adventurous, we also sampled the fried alligator. It was good, but better were the crab stuffed mushrooms, yum! It was somewhat busy, and the atmosphere certainly isn't fancy, but it's a good place for a quick bite. I understand their seafood is among the best. I enjoyed the spice and flavor of the crawfish.

The staff here was excellent. My waitress taught me how to eat crawfish and just was very nice. We loved this place. Bathrooms were upstairs, but that is to be expected in the older building.s
