Saw this place in a magazine at our hotel, was skeptical at first but we were not disapointed. The food was freshly made and the staff were really down to earth. They took care of everything we needed and never let our drinks get empty.

Just good food! Great Catfish and shrimp. Delicious gumbo. Great for families and kids! Try the shrimp stuffed with oysters and wrapped in bacon.

We had about a 30 minute wait - the restaurant is not that large but the wait was worth it. Once seated we were immediately greeted by a server. Our food came out quickly and was very good. Don't expect a baked potato because they...More
