The food here is great, very casual atmosphere. I have been multiple times and was never disappointed. Great brunch spot!

Not the best Cajun food experience I have encountered, but this is Northern Virginia. We arrived at 1pm on a Wednesday, and we were the only customers in the restaurant. Food seemed rather expensive, but like I said; this is Northern Virginia (near DC). Cornbread...More

In the couple of times I've gone here to eat, I found it to be a lot of fatty/deep fried food. I probably had already decided to not go back here ever before I heard that the owner made it known that anyone can come...More

Being from Louisiana I was excited to find a Cajun restaurant in NOVA. The excitement was gone quickly after we entered the door. The service started out good. We were seated quickly and our drink order was taken. That's where it all went down hill....More
