Had the shrimp and sweet potato fries. It was fun eating without a plate or utensils. Very popular place!

An experience. While lacking in space, once the food arrives your claustrophobia is an easy trade. The food here is not for the faint of heart. Every bite is filled with the type of deliciousness people would die for.

We ate here as it was in walking distance from the hotel. We waited for about 20 minutes and the food was worth the wait. The chicken sandwich was great, and the corn on the cob was awesome. The spices are really good.

This is a seafood place that you order food by the pound. Shrimp, Crawfish, Mussels, etc. are prepared the Cajun way. It starts out hot and gets hotter. There are some good beers on tap. The service is really bad. We have walked out on...More

Fun place but if not experienced in eating crawfish then it’s way too much work. Waitress was nice and tried to help

This is a cool spot to dine at in D.C. If you like spicy seafood and don't mind the crowd, it's definitely worth a visit. My husband and I ordered a combo boil-in-a-bag meal that consisted of crawfish, crab legs, shrimp, corn, sausage and potatoes....More

This place is easy to pass - it has a narrow storefront and signage is not easily seen from the sidewalk. It is worth the attentive effort to find. We were warmly greeted at about 6 p.m. midweek. Our server, Long, was personable and professional,...More

I got a shrimp Po boy sandwich which was very good. Service on the other hand was on the slow side. Restaurant here it will take place at about 10 minutes and it was 20+

Skip the oysters, at $24.00 a dozen they're a total rip off. Shrimp was good- would be nice if they used butcher paper instead of trash bags on your table.

don't think they do and as others have said the Bar area is tiny. overall it's a small restaurant and it's the kind of place that people linger.
