They accommodated a group from our local university with ease and grace. My crab cake was excellent. My husband had the bisque and was pleased. The delight was the homemade pecan pie served warm! Yum!

What a great place. We had a large family gathering here for Christmas. The food was wonderful. Great steaks. Great service. In a wonderful little parish with lots of historical sites around it. Easy to find and hard to forget. Wonderful dinner and great hospitality.

A group of longtime friends met here for lunch. I had the crab cakes which were delicious; made of almost all crab meat. Everyone else enjoyed their lunch selection. The service was awesome, as the waitress was very patient with our visiting for 2+ hours.
