This is the second time I’ve enjoyed the Cajun Potato. It was just as yummy as I remembered. It comes with a salad made of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Just a warning about the orange salad dressing. It is very sweet. Try it before...More

We had the catfish beaucoup, etouffee bake potato with shrimp, chicken salad and bisque, and pasta salad. Everything was amazing even the kids grilled cheese. This is a must stop lunch destination. Just a short walk off front street.

Had lunch here today and everything was as mentioned. Crab cakes were crunchy and fresh, sauce was perfect, a perfect amount of spice and heat to compliment, not overwhelm the delicate mudbugs. Crispy French bread topped off the plate. Bread pudding was spicy and delicate....More

Good meat pie mediocre and not worth it salads. House dressing was extra sweet orange dressing. Dirt rice was good. Service a bit sporadic. We were a large group seated separately that might have been part of the issue. We did pre order lunch if...More
