If you like seafood, this is the restaurant that you want to go to. The portions are plentiful and the food is always hot when brought to your table. The servers are all great. The catfish and shrimp are great. The new menu is great. Charlie the owner always comes by our table and asks if everything is okay. You will not be disappointed in this restaurant.

We have dined here a few times over the years.
Celebrated our 36th Wedding Anniversary recently.
As always, food was delicious, service and ambiance were great. We try to sample something different each time and so far it's all been excellent. Particularly love their Fried Calamari. They make their own special marinara sauce - has a little kick to it.

The new menu has new items and all are great. The fried catfish was super hot and was meaty. The bread is straight out of the oven. The crawfish etoufee is the best in town. The Margaritas are plentiful and they don't skimp on the tequila. Charlie the owner always comes by our table and asks if everything is okay. The service is always great. The bread pudding was delicious. You will not be disappointed at this restaurant.

We love this restaurant and will probably return because the food is still really good but the service has gone downhill. The appetizers arrived after the main course and when I tried to get the cups of soup upgraded to bowls as compensation for this, it took forever. The waitress clearly just shut down and did not know what we were asking for. It took more than 20 minutes to get the manager to come to our table. We've been here many times before and never had a problem until now. We did eventually get what we asked for and took home two larges bowls of corn bisque, which was delicous. Maybe they were just having a bad service night.

We eat here occasionally. I love their eggplant au gratin and they have fantastic wedge salads. Our last visit I had the clam chowder. It wasn't really hot, but I didn't send it back because I didn't like the taste of it. Skimpy on the clams and the potatoes were many. Didn't seem like it was homemade. We will definitely return, but I won't order the chowder again. They have the best bread ever!
