This place was an awesome place to come to and enjoy gumbo, steaks and drinks. I came to enjoy myself to dinner and drinks and they were closed down. What a shame. I will miss this icon of a great place.

A small neighborhood bar and restaurant that has some of the best food around and the price is such a bargain. I eat there often and highly recommend that you try it.

Simply terrific steaks and prime rib. Potatoes are wonderful. Friendly atmosphere and service all at an exceptional value. Hope rumors of closing are false.

We had been visiting this restaurant since the 1980s, mainly for their lunch special - an overstuffed filet mignon poboy with a side of crazy potatoes. Unbelievably inexpensive and out-of-this-world! It had been awhile, at least a year, but we were very disappointed this time....More
