“Use to love, now hate!”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I think they forgot how to cook crawfish when they opened their new restaurant. HELLO. Put the spice in the water when you cook 'em. If you like to suck the heads hope you're prepared for a mouth full of hot tap water. NASTY!!

“Over priced compared to similiar places”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Think of the newspaper on table places out in the northeast to eat seafood and you get where they were going with this place.

But then look at prices for what you are really paying for (especially crawfish!) and then look at the environment and you'll quickly realize you are being taken for a ride.

The food is tasty, but it's not rocket science type food. Boiled in spice. Not a major feat...

I think if you shop around a little you can get better in the local area, with large portions in line with good quality and a better backdrop to dine.

“Good food and Karaoke”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

The restaurant is cheap and cheerful. Much of the food is fried, but there are some healthier options. Service is good and the staff is friendly. The karaoke from 8-11pm is always fun and no-one takes it too seriously.

“Only if really hungry...”
Reviewed May 8, 2011

This place was suggested by hotel. Drove over to it and as soon as I entered the horrible karaoke filled my ears. I was hungry so I tried to tolerate the karaoke, and could not wait to leave. Will not return.

“Wow!”
Reviewed April 8, 2011

Very expensive! 1/2 dozen oysters 7.95 they reeked and were brown!, 1/2 dozen jalepeno poppers 2.50 each??? Whattt? That's 15.00 bucks, they tried to charge us for a gumbo we didn't even get 7.95, 16.95 for fried shrimp that really weren't so great & and an 11.95 kids sized po boy with fries (2.95) drinks were 1.95 a piece... total was 75.00 lunch for 2 people, we could've had 2 lobster dinners for that price, not to mention the waitress had a bad attitude!! M My advice is don't even bother with that place Black Diamond off of Roddfield is much much better. Great seafood & awesome prices plus friendly enviornment:) hope this was helpful!
