Great service tonight as well as amazing views of the river at sunset. The pork chops and barbecued shrimp po boy were delicious. Easy to find with valet parking if desired. The turtle feeding just outside on the deck was entertaining.

Great atmosphere right on the bayou. The food was great as well as the service. We shared a 16 oz. ribeye and we had plenty for the both of us. Our waiter remembered to bring an extra plate. Perfect dining experience.
