Sandwiches were excellent. Sort of a college spot decor. The servers were delightful and worked hard to satisfy.

We were looking for catfish and this place was recommended. We weren't disappointed. I had catfish and fried oysters, both very good. Wish I had some now! If you want a fancy place, keep looking. Fancy doesn't always mean better food.

We ate on the Mama side-seafood. It was all fried. Service was good and the staff was very friendly. Really loud music from the bar area and I am too old to enjoy that but the food was fresh and reasonably priced.

We stopped in for a late lunch after arriving to the area. Although it's a clean & friendly place the food wasn't very good. We ordered a shrimp & a catfish po-boy. Fries seemed to have been cook a while prior & reheated. Although po-boys...More
