I judge seafood restaurants by their fried shrimp on a bun; their's is great. This is a local diner , not a touristy or high-end dining. It's just excellent food, it's clean, and informal. Really easy to get to from I-55.

Sandwiches are very good - shrimp and catfish poboys especially. Bisque and gumbo are always exceptional. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Prices are great

Tried the oysters Josephine. So awesome. And of course the raw oysters were perfect, as usual. You must get the gumbo.

Funny name but fantastic food. If you haven't tried this restaurant WELL LET ME TELL YOU, YOU are missing some of the best fried, broiled, boiled seafood and New Orleans style Po Boys you will find anywhere. I make sure I have lunch here at least twice a month. The RAW oysters are as good as you will find ANYWHERE... More
