Good choices, we did have the fish and fries and we couldn't complain. Three large fillets of fish with a side of fries and potato salad for $16.00. We enjoyed our food there and the hush puppies were great.

Great place to get authentic Louisiana food. This is the place locals frequent. The food is fantastic and the staff is friendly. Make sure you try the chargrilled oysters!
