The place is quite small but very nice. Serves mainly sea food and offers really cool meals. I tried the alligator. Didn't like it much but the overall experience was great. By the evening there was also a performance that was great. The stuff is very friendly.

I ordered the sampler of jambalaya, étouffée, and seafood gumbo which had great flavors. I couldn't get over the number of flies and gnats inside the restaurant. It was quite a put off.

Good Friday, everywhere busy and we could see a free window seat from the street so we went in. Menu was really dirty but we put it down to a busy day. Then were told the oven was broken but it happened not to affect our choices. Catfish with French fries and coleslaw, and sample seafood platter with jambalaya, gumbo... More

My dad and I ate here for my birthday luncheon. Its not super fancy, but it has great bones and awesome windows that look out over the street. I got the Crawfish po-boy and my dad got the fish and chips. Fries weren't the best, but the sandwich was perfect. Crawfish was fried good and not too much sauce and... More

The place was dark, dirty and rather disgusting. Not at all like the picture shown on tripadvisor. I asked the man... More

Cute little bar on river street with friendly service & good food. Live music. Pool tables upstairs. Nice atmosphere, though nothing fancy.

Lousy service, disgusting food. Do not go to this place unless all you want is a lukewarm beer to a high price.
