Been back several times since the rebuild and I believe it is better than before. Tim and Suzy have made the place great. Our food and service were top notch. Don't change a thing.

Food was excellent, and so was the service. They were damaged by a fire in August and completely redid the kitchen. I had the gumbo, fried shrimp and of course the fried catfish. Best in the area!!! Good salad bar too!

After being closed for 6 months due to a fire I was there for lunch today. The fish, salad bar, hush puppies, and ice cream were delicious. Their shrimp and oysters are very good as well. They have lunch specials Tuesdays-Fridays 11-2.
