Fantastic menu for lunch or supper. Love the atmosphere and the service was excellent. I have had the steak salad, Cajun burger and fish tacos - "real yummy". I thought the pricing was spot on for the quality and service.

The group ordered two appetizers: fried pickles and shrimp cocktail. Both were excellent. I had the blackened tilapia with two sides: jambalaya and broccoli. The fish had a lot of flavor.
