Went here based on a recommendation from a coworker. I was told it was excellent, but was skeptical. It was a quaint little restaurant in Mt. Washington. We tried two of the specials: soft shell crab and the short ribs. Both were absolutely amazing. Food...More

I can't say enough good about the meal I had there. Guess I got lucky, because they were doing a crawfish boil while I was there! The crawfish were cooked just right so I could pinch the meat out of the tails, and the maque...More

Came by for lunch and the cook said to try the Shrimp Gumbo.. Service was fast.. fun place.. but I'd have to rate the Gumbo about a 3.. no real flavor and no spice at all.. Still not a bad way to spend lunch..

Great meal and great service. We had chicken gumbo and jambalaya and both were excellent. We also had amazing crab cakes as an appetizer - best ever.

The New Orleans-inspired dishes are never a disappointment. This was not our first visit, and this time we tried the shrimp po' boy (on previous visits, we had had jambalaya and gumbo). Service is attentive and helpful. Be aware they're closed on Mondays.

The food here is amazing. I have been numerous times since I moved to Baltimore. Definitely worth going over to Mt Washington for!

We serve an innovative mix of Cajun / Creole cuisine and local Maryland fare that utilizes both Chesapeake Bay and New Orleans flavors. From sweet corn to blue crabs, rockfish, shrimp, crawdads and more, the delights of these two regions abound and the heritage of preparing the local fare runs deep in the culture of both regions. Just as summer in Baltimore would not be complete without a crab cake or picnic of steamed crabs smothered in Old Bay, neither would any trip to New Orleans be complete without a sampling of Gumbo, Jambalaya, or a Po'Boy. We have dubbed our food Maryland Creole Cuisine. Items such as Crab and Shrimp Gumbo, Blackened Rockfish, and Pan Fried Oysters with Remoulade are just a few samplings of how wonderfully the flavors of Maryland and Louisiana blend.
