Our children were well accommodated and there was a variety of dishes to please everyone. The live music was a joy to listen to while we waited.

I was pretty disappointed with our visit. The food was nothing special and the service was slow even though they were not very busy. May be a good place for a drink or a show, but not for dinnerMore

Dinner was good, staff was nice. Don't get the coconut cream pie for dessert, it's not very good. Very cute place and probably buzzing with people during busy season, but for us it was pretty much empty (September on a Weds night)

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

No. The meal is served during the performance and ticket price includes food. I wouldnt recommend the food anyway, or the venue for that matter.
