Superb food. Amazing and unique starter salad comes with all dinners. The seafood and beef are equally amazing. This restaurant is a gem. I have never had a bad meal there and the service is excellent as well.

Exceptional service and food, even on a busy weekend night. Locals suggested ordering a selection of appetizers (who are coinossieurs of crawfish) over dinner entrees which provided a variety of sampling’s. I was still tempted by the Fried Catfish dinner, which was excellent.

Met some friends here for supper on a Friday night. Bar area was small. Food was good but the wait was very long.

Unique menu, unusual but delightful. Everything on menu is pretty spicy but tasty. A little pricey but worth it. Usually a long wait time unless you make it before 5:00pm.
