This restaurant is awesome at every level with food... especially oysters on the half shell. The seafood platters are well above average... no bad food at this place and that is the reason you have to walk a little after you finally find a parking slot

One of the best places in Town for Louisiana Seafood. Everything on the menu is good and the atmosphere is really nice. Great place for special events like Birthday dinners

In my opinion, they have the BEST charbroiled oysters in town. I love to sit in the bar area to watch them grill. The customer service in that area is the best along with a frozen hammerhead drink.

If you're not comfortable with a noisy atmosphere you won't be comfortable here, well lit and our server was polite and attentive. We were looking for something healthy (it's... More

I have eaten here several times, and enjoyed each visit. The seafood is delicious and fresh, the prices are reasonable, and the service is very good. This is a relaxing place to eat with a group or with one other person. Maybe a little noisy to be 'intimate' but not bad. I've tried their fare grilled, fried, and baked, and... More

The food is always great! I love the pan fried, andouille encrusted fish and the pan fried pork chop lunch special. However, the wait can be long and parking is sometimes an issue.

It was beyond nice that they had a bottle. NOW.. the food was amazing I had the BBQ drum and dirty rice but I started it... More
