Restaurant was nice, clean and a great atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and visited the table often. All of the food we had was good. I thought some of the food was a little pricey for what we got, but overall not bad. Loved the location. We had a lot of fun.

Walked in a little after 12pm and was seated right away. Service was great and waitress was very attentive. My lobster and sides were pretty good. My sister did not care too much for crawfish, but the rest of her stuff was good. My kids enoyed the decor on inside. This was my first visit in almost 10 years, but... More

The outdoor seating on this beautiful day is just what the doctor ordered! Relaxing while soaking up the sun was made even better with the spectacular service by MJ! She was absolutely a breath of fresh air herself and a delight. I highly recommend you stop in and request MJ and enjoy a drink and some good food!!

Always have fun here....We go here alot with our teens and without them too! We always get the crab buckets or stream pots. The food is always great, service is great, and the drinks are fun! Sometimes there's a wait and it's usually always worth it!

The food was great, except for the dessert we didn't get. Our waitress, Sarah, didn't want to check on us for some reason. My husband got a salad but nothing to eat it with. We had to ask for them & another cracker (which we never got). We got our food then she ask if we want butter for dipping,... More

Everyone in our party loved it! We had a 40 minute wait on a Saturday at 5 pm for a party of 4. I suggest going 30 minutes prior to when you want to be seated and put your name in and then go shopping for a few minutes. Service was good and food was excellent!! Great for all ages

We celebrated our anniversary with Stevie Nicks in concert in Bossier and sought out our favorite place to eat! Joe's! We get our dungeness crabs fix whenever we can find a location. Cajun for me and garlic for my hubby!

These joints are always good but this one location in Bossier City just in case you are in the area, is worth stopping by. The evening was just eight, sat outside enjoying a cocktail watching the river and the skyline. At the Boardwalk, you can walk or shop and walk. Just in case you are looking for exotic shopping, The... More
