I took out of town clients and they loved the food and Cajun ambience. Gumbo is best in town. Buffet on weekends but extensive menu the rest of the week. Too bad it is not open for supper.

I do not recall seeing pets, but there was an alligator sitting on the riverbank - if you do take the dog keep an eye on it!
