Had the the brisket plate, beans, coleslaw and deep fried Mac and cheese... lovely. Barbeque sauce was more on the vinegar side than I prefer..but good. My partner had the oyster poboy..also good. Nice outdoor deck, little breezy but nice view.

We had the brisket sandwich and it was smoky, twangy and yummy. The sides were also good - the fries and the slaw. The service is at the window.

Very good food. Service was good. A little on the higher price for that type of food. Great location. Perfect for a summertime lunch. Lots of things to look at.
