We have eaten here several times and keep coming back. The stuff mushrooms for an appetizer or a recommended. Étouffée entrée is also recommended. The trip to the bathroom will take you back in time with the old toilet tanks hanging high on the wall.

We stopped at this restaurant, based on reviews, on our way to New Orleans. The atmosphere, history, and food were great. We enjoyed blackened shrimp and catfish with steamed veggies. We would definitely stop again.
