The flounder tasted old, but the waitress stated it came in on the truck that morning. Nothing was done to compensate the meal I could not eat. My friend, on the other hand, enjoyed the fried shrimp and thought it delicious.

Small, seafood joint. Most items are fried but they have daily specials. The waitstaff was friendly and made many suggestions. I wasn't very hungry and ended up getting a small shrimp dish that was excellent and fresh. I'd go back there if I'm ever in...More

We've enjoyed the lunch special fish and fries several times, always good. We've also tried the crawfish boil during crawfish season, excellent!
