This place is OK, definitely not worth a long wait, but the hush puppies? Yum. And to be able to buy the mix, take it home to CA, and make hush puppies all my friends loved? Worth the visit. (Though one could just go to...More

The queue, expected at this institution, wasn’t too bad. An interlude at the bar, with a better sangria than I have found in Spain, quickly wiped away the minutes. Upstairs we went, in this warren of a place. Everything we ordered was just as expected,...More

A bar like atmosphere which is crowded at all times. The starter prawns Cajun with hush puppies, side of grits and red rice were heaven on earth. It’s no wonder that there’s always a line outside. An honest restaurant where to get what you see....More

Ask for Ashley (yes, his real name) and he will take care of you. You will need a carry out bag because there is so much food. Crab cakes are unbelievable, shrimp (Cajun of course), scallops and don't forget the hush puppies. Yum!

There is always a wait to dine here. But, fortunately it goes by quickly. There is a cool bar to wait, and fun inspirational cards to entertain everyone in your party!
