I really want to like this place. Have been here three times in the last few years and while the service is excellent the food just isn't that great. My fried catfish the most recent time was probably the best meal of the times I've...More

Very friendly, great atmosphere and the Cajun chicken wings are awesome! The chef comes to greet you at your table in between meals. Great location and easy street parking despite its popular location on Union street.

Service was very good, liked the waitress. If you can't make better nachos than this you should pack it in. We had the Cajun crawfish nachos. The crawfish had no flavor and the nachos were very dry. We also had a $30 seafood pasta trio...More

We are from Louisiana . Each time we move we hope and hope to find an authentic LA restaurant. Sadly this isn't it for us here. It has great ambiance and the food is ok, but not authentic. I wish people would not call sandwiches...More
