Had one of the steam bucket meals which contained an assortment of seafood that retained their respective flavors. Sat at the bar which its bar tender made enjoyable.

This is for Yankees. The food is bland and overpriced for what you get. Guess folks from the north stationed at Barksdale AFB keep this in business. Louisiana natives know great Louisiana seafood. This is not it.

Long wait for the food, but it was worth it. The waiter came three times to inform us that they didn't know if they had the wine we ordered, but managed to get it after almost 25 minutes. I will recommend this place, but be...More
