Very bad experience. We had to wait 1 hour and a half to get our plate on a weekday. Birds were all over the place finishing the plates. Disgusting. Never will come back

This place has a great burger. It also has a nice view overlooking the Sea Wall. There’s an attached nightclub called the Drip. Kind of like being in an oversized treehouse, Lots of fun and an ever attentive staff.

ML, I am sorry for the late response to your question. We did make the Chicken & Sausage Gumbo as well as the Roux in house. However, since the roux was produced inconsistently, we decided to remove the Gumbo from the menu... More
