Dropped in for a mid-week supper and they had a 30 minute wait for a table so we decided to eat at the bar. This place always seems to be hopping; live music in the background. We had the fried oysters and scallops and they were both delicious! Great seafood, atmosphere and service.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire metro St Louis area. Southern cooking with a flair, and they never disappoint. Great service, relaxed, friendly and efficient servers. Great seafood dishes are their forte. but as I say, you will never be sorry for anything your order.

With so many chain restaurants around, it is wonderful to have a restaurant that offers authentic, made to order meals. We had a party of 10. And for a place that does not offer reservations on weekends, they got us in and out very efficiently. And, everyone loved their meal. I had the seafood tacos ( I chose cod and... More

A friend was in town for work, so we met her at this restaurant for dinner as it was near her hotel. Since we hadn't seen her for 10 years, I was glad that the live music was not too loud. It lent a nice ambience to our experience without us having to shout. The decor is fun, and we... More

This is the BEST Cajun food I've every had. I always eat her if I'm in St. Louis. Food was better than anything I had when I was in New Orleans.

Unfortunately I ordered jambalya which was nothing like I have eaten in New Orleans and it was more mush than individual items. The red beans and rice were so spicy I had to drink water after each bite. The noise level was unacceptable also. Could barely talk with the person I was with. I won't be back.

Thanks for reaching out, Bret. We prepare an authentic homemade menu within a lively, sometimes loud atmosphere, but I'm sorry to hear our styles weren't lining up. While we only go moderately spicy on some items...let us know if it is too much. We will be happy to offer you another item. I'm very sorry to hear you don't plan... More

This place was a little confusing to me. It's a dive bar and grill but they sell food in the 15-20 range. I think the place is in need of a good restoration or a new location entirely, it seems they have outgrown it (good for them). Another cajun place in Webster sets the vibe a bit better. Nevertheless it... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! It's great to hear hear there were some definite hits among your table, like our gator bites and margaritas, but it's a shame to hear our Jambalaya wasn't quite your style. Nonetheless, I hope you'll return to keep exploring all our menu has to offer. All the best, Harry More

Good atmosphere, comfy yet lively. Portions were large, which is always nice. Alligator was practically flavorless, and seemed overcooked in the cornmeal-type batter it seemed to have. The clam chowder my wife got was absolutely fantastic! Other than that, the food wasn't anything special. The fish I got with my platter was also bland, and the texure a bit off.... More

Thanks for reaching out, Billy. I'm sorry to hear our flavors didn't impress you as much as our portions, atmosphere, and service. I'm curious about the apple cobbler as we don't have this on the menu. Maybe you meant our peach cobbler. Regardless, I'm sorry that you left without feeling the 5-star treatment that we strive for...and deliver the vast... More

I think my husband said it best: "This place is good enough to be a national chain." We enjoyed our food and the decor fit the theme well (it was fun watching the fish. Very cool aquarium!) I'm trying my hardest to not hold the speed of the kitchen against them since we dined on a Saturday night, but it... More
