Love the grilled shrimp and dirty rice special on Wednesday lunch! It's a small plate but all you need...inexpensive too

It was allright but I will not rush to make it back. Different strokes for different folks I guess. Not a hole in the wall.

I really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Everything was hot and fresh with very good flavor. All the staff was friendly. I would drive to Marshall to eat here as in our town the food is not as good as it is here.

We went by Friday night, but didn't stay, the place was packed. We wondered if it could really be that good. It was! We went back Sat. afternoon and it was great. Had the cajun surprise...if you love cornbread and cawlfish tails this is what to order. Spicy but not hot.. there must have been a half pound of tails... More

Be sure to come hungry! I ordered the chicken fried ribeye (wow) and it filled the plate. My husband ordered a Cajun dinner. Then we shared with each other and still had enough to fill a to go box. Nice atmosphere friendly staff. It was worth the trip into Marshall.

Had high hopes for this place, since we were so close to the Tx/La border, but it was just average. Ordered the oyster poor boy. The oysters were good and there were plenty of them. But the bread was NOT good. It tasted like they had just bought a bunch of rolls from the grocery. I'm used to the bread... More
