You have to pay attention or you could miss this little gem off Park Blvd by the flea market. If you love Louisiana Cajun food this is the place for you. The fried green tomatoes are delicious and their crawfish cornbread is amazing!! I've never tried anything here and I didn't like and for those who like to imbibe they... More

We had reservations for six--everybody loved eating on the deck. Great soft shells, mud bugs, fried okra, soups etc. Most fried stuff is a little hot, due to the batter. Good selection of craft beers. Waitress was fine. Only complaint this time, was the Matre D'Hotel who was very rude in telling us that we could not use our cell... More

Very laid back. You can eat with a water view but it was early evening and dark and chilly so I opted for inside. Had a very nice bowl of gumbo and white zinfandel. I understand their bread pudding is to die for, but i was too full to try it.

My husband loves their Soft Shell Crab Sandwich and so did another person in our party. Another had the burritos which were huge and tasty. I had the crab cakes which were quite spicy. Two out of 6 of us left with some mosquito bites. The beer was cold and the service was very good. I would have loved to... More

Authentic Cajun food done right. Craft beer. Nice outside patio by a river. This place could be so much more. They only a third of their property and they don't do a Crawfish boil?! I've been coming here for years and always leave happy.

My son couldn't wait to take us here for lunch, as it has become one of his favorite local places to eat. He and my husband loaded up on cajun food and loved it all. Me, not being nearly as adventurous when it comes to spicy food, stuck to a good ol' hamburger and fries. We sat outside on the... More

Passed by many times & finally got to go. Tried Mon nite, but they're closed Mon & Tues. Had quick & friendly service soon as I walked in. Nice casual look, several rooms, some inside, some overlooking bayou. Had tasty creole roasted pulled pork w/red beans & rice, watch out for the spicy sauce on the side, lol. Then had... More

My wife is gluten free and the only selections here, outside of salads, were all extremely hot and poorly prepared. I could not believe they did not know how to make creole---yuk!!!

We have been here many times, the food is always good and real Cajun, but the service seems to have disappeared. This is the third time since our May 2016 review (Rated it 5 then) that we have been here. The first two times it took a long time to get served and the waiter on both occasions would leave... More
