"Outside seating" in November did not sound appealing, but the patio area is thoroughly enclosed and toasty. Great oysters. It is clearly a bar, but lively and cozy. Stage in outside area for live shows. Even our two year old daughter had a ball there.More

Recently ate dinner here while in town with friends and enjoyed our meal. They have great New Orleans style food. The outdoor seating was enjoyable on a nice day. I recommend the Lobster Po Boy, it was excellent.

We had a party of eleven and we're sat as soon as we walked in. They do not do reservations, but if you call ahead, they will do preferred seating. Give that a shot before just showing us with that many.

I think they are at any time of day, however I agree at night it's probably pretty rowdy.
