We enjoyed making a quick dessert stop for beignets. Yummy! We plan on stopping back in for the seafood.

If they say there is a 45 min- an hour wait, don't leave- you'll thank me later. Their new pistolettes are incredible, the shrimp is fresh, the beignets remind me of New Orleans, even the plain ol' cheeseburger tasted great!!
Seriously, give them a try

Thank Katie C

The food was great and very plentiful. Be sure you go with a small group as several large groups were turned away due to lack of seating.

friendly staff, great dessert, chicken and waffles were tasty and big enough to share for our 2 'tweeners'. But, the gumbo was just ok. I love cajun and hit cajun spots as much as possible, so yeah i have some experience of good gumbo. We tried both the seafood and chicken/sausage gumbo and had the same reaction - just ok, needed a kick.
Otherwise the vibe was fun, the place was busy but the manager made a point of stopping by everyone's table and chit-chatting. Good place to go after a day at Schlitterbahn

Waitress was very nice and responsive to questions about menu. I had seafood gumbo that was ok. Not a lot of flavor and very little seafood. About 4 shrimps and some other things that were questionable for seafood. Wife had salad that was ok. Would not go back. I should have known better about a place that prides themselves on gumbo but searves everything from waffles to fried chicken and burgers.

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review and share your feedback. We're disappointed to hear that our gumbo and diner fare did not meet expectations. We value our diners' input and will share this with management and kitchen staff. We hope you'll reconsider and come see us again.
