We were looking for a place to have dinner when travelling through Livingston. We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. My companion had the oyster dinner and I had shrimp kabobs. We were both very happy with our meals. The food was wonderful and the staff friendly and accommodating and the prices very reasonable.

This place has great Cajun seafood! Their "blooming" onion is so good (yes better than their's)!!! Trust me I've had both. They have had great food for years and I plan on going back.

This was my second visit. My first was not pleasant but I always allow for everyone to have a bad day. There were 3 of us and we shared the Pound of fried shrimp which was simply not good.

As a seafood lover, I had high hopes for what appears to be the only seafood place in town. This place is EXACTLY the kind of restaurant you see Chef Ramsey overhauling on Kitchen Nightmares. Will try again... More
