First time experience last night. It was awesome. There were so many tasty items on the menu that I could not decide. Finally, I settled on the blackened catfish jambalaya. It was delicious. Really too much food for me but I could not stop eating....More

The biggest problem is wanting to order everything on the menu. I always eat lunch here. The ingredients are always fresh and the daily specials are to die for.

I think that they do not take reservations. Just be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Also, it is a BYO for beer & wine. It's worth the wait...the food is delicious!
