Great service and food. They had the best sweet potato fries I've EVER eaten!! i had fried shrimp and it was good. We also tried their blueberry bread pudding and it was excellent. Our server was very attentive and friendly and did a great job

This place has been here for a long time and has a very loyal following. Their gumbo is dark and is really good. They have a good happy hour and a good lunch and dinner business.

Went by for dinner on Ash Wednesday. The place was crowded, but out wait time to be seated was not long. We had a good server, and the food was good. I noticed that construction is under way to relocate to the far end of...More
