When I want fried we come here and ask for them to kick it up a notch which illicites a cry of "Make it snappy". I enjoy the hushpuppies and like the extra horseradish to make the cocktail sauce even spicier. The fried okra is...More

Group of retired men eat out weekly. First time group met there. Everyone enjoyed their meal with some taking into consideration dietary needs. Entrees ordered ranged from a fresh salad to fried fish to shrimp. Everyone left satisfied. We will eat there again.

When we want really good fried seafood this is our place to go. Also good oysters on the half shell and good gumbo. Reasonably priced, very casual.

The crawfish is better than the competition nearby. They carry Dallas Blonde beer. Our favorite. All of the fried food is good. Hushpuppies are good. Mexican cocktail is good. Gumbo too spicy.
