This restaurant is also visited year-round by locals, a true sign that it is good. He makes great breakfasts and lunches, but his fine dining at night is even better known by restaurant visitors. Great choice, nice owners and friendly staff.

The Cajun pasta tasted like cream with cayenne pepper on it no flavor at all. It could have used some garlic or chicken broth. Very disappointed from other reviewers

If you see a line up...turn around. The service and the food are not worth the wait. I am sure that there are other restaurants in the area that would be more worth your money. E.g. Mcdonald's.
