The Tuna Salad was fresh with little surprises of bacon, fresh ripe strawberries, hard boiled egg, perfectly seared tuna and a delightful strawberry vinaigrette! The walls are covered with pictures and memorabilia honoring our Veterans. The acoustics make conversation a bit difficult. However, worth the drive :)

Had seafood Poboys (1 shrimp, 1 catfish). Bread was chewy and seafood seasoning was nothing special. Appears to be a very popular place for locals. Owner must be Vietnam veteran based on all the impressive memorabilia.

We're glad you stopped by to give our po' boys a try! However, we're sorry to hear that they weren't perfect for you. Making sure that you're happy with your meal is important to us. Hope you'll give our place another try next time! There's a lot more on the menu to try.

Wishing you well,

The food here was wonderful! We sampled several menu items and everything was very delicious. It was also very nice to see the appreciation to the armed forces in the decor of the restaurant.

While in town I wanted soft shell crab. So I ordered the Po'boy and not disappointed at all. It was huge, tender and delicious.

One of our friends ordered the HALF muffuletta. The half sandwich filled the whole plate. I was fortunate enough to get a sampling. Unreal, my first time eater of the Italian sandwich. The bread was super fresh with incredible seasoning.

The bar looked like a fun place to come in and have a drink. Maybe next time in Slidell.
