Located in the heart of Old Town, Manassas, VA is this small restaurant. The food is pricey but awesome. The atmosphere is great and the waiter we had was wonderful. They also offer music and we hit it twice now: one night with music and anothe night without. We very much enjoyed both evenings - but we prefered not having music for a more romantic evening. Definitely don't miss this authentic Cajun menu!!

Went there for Mother's Day dinner and was treated like a queen! The inside has the look and feel of a Big Easy eatery. Very comfortable and friendly feel. Since it was a nice evening though, I was happy we were able to get a table streetside on the patio. Service was wonderful, food was amazing - had the Steak Tallulah which was cooked to perfection. Save room for dessert! Bread pudding with whiskey sauce....yum!

This resturant could be better. It is small and crowded, the layout could be better. My food arrived and was not really hot, patrons go in and out to stand out front at the entrance to smoke...hard to enjoy a meal with this going on...seems more of a bar then a resturant. I was given a menu that had 3-4 ants crawling on it...i pass..the food was good, could have done better...

I went with a friend for dinner, and everything we had was so good! We had food coma after eating, because we couldn't stop! This was definitely some of the best Creole style food I have in quite some time.

This everything I tried, and all of it was good. And by good, I mean I have eaten in New Orleans many times so I have something authenticate to compare it to.

Cornbread (perfect amount of saltiness, sweetness, and buttery flavor). There is only one place I have even been to that has better cornbread (in Texas).

Gumbo, I have had too many gumbos to count, but this one was definitely good in everyway.

Grits, these are authentic "stone" grits from New Orleans. They were the second best grits I have ever had (the best was in Atlanta).

Oysters...the oysters here were to die for! I had two types: a spicy andouille sausage/corn/oyster/chakta(?) sauce, and a bacon/spinach/parmesan/oyster. These were so good, I contemplated only filling my stomach with them.

Catfish and steak with grilled potatoes & veggies. Both were delicious, no complaints about either. Being from Texas, I have high standard on beef, especially steak...and this was a pretty decent steak.
