Just an average food chain. Staff very friendly , food average. Had a long wait a lunchtime . Seems to be popular with locals . Serves burgers- salads- few different other dishes - tenders. I probably wouldn't go back due to me not being a big fan of franchises --- -( not Louisiana style seafood)---

Get the baked potato soup! Everything is delicious but try the crispy chicken salad. The rolls are bomb! There's some great mixed drinks at the bar!

Stopped here on the way back from Casino to our hotel. Nice menu with lots of options to choose from. I had the fish and chips from the $9.99 menu and it was very good. Fries were a bit greasy, but edible. I upgraded for $3.99 to a salad and a piece of pie. I had the gooey caramel and... More

Was not expecting such a good meal, but it was outstanding. I highly recommend the cedar planked salmon. The place gets very busy to I suggest arriving early.

Restaurant is very busy, but they do not open up all of their seating sections and never have enough staff. Waited over 20 mins for a table. Food was good, prices were okay, service was average, and dessert was yummy. Next time I will go somewhere else. No apologies were offered for the lack of staff or the ridiculous wait... More

I have eaten here many times before with no problem at all. But within 30 minutes after eating here on November 12th, 2016, I became as sick as a dog! I ordered a fried chicken breast sandwich and ate half of it. It didn't taste bad at all but when I got home my stomach begin to cramp. I took... More
