It is popular with locals and tourists. Anytime we have out of town visitors, young or old, we go there. Cajun seafood, alligator, beans, you name it.

Service was great, the food was authentic I found the food to be somewhat lacking for the price. It can be best described as cajun/creole food for the non-local.

This was my first visit here due to it being chosen by my date. I ordered the fried catfish that came with fries. The catfish was 'ok' I guess but the fries tasted like they had been sitting in old grease for about a month. Thankfully I had great company or else I would've walked out. This will NOT be... More

Seems to be good representative of local food. But a bit pricey, and also maybe the local food just likes a lot of rich sauces, carbs, and fat. The stuffed mushrooms were great, but I made the mistake of ordering an entree swimming in the same rich white gravy. The server was exceptionally solicitous and polite.

This place has great atmosphere. You really feel like you're in an original Cajun cabin. The food is decent, but doesn't really stand out above some of the other restaurants in the area. Take that with a grain of salt because I'm a local, and it takes a lot to impress me. If you're passing through the area, and you... More

Stopped here on drive through the South. Very popular local restaurant, a little way out of the main centre of town. Set up in an open plan restaurant with live music at night. Friendly service and flavourful food... the gumbo was a standout!

Long gone is the decent menu. And pretty much long gone is the very decent food they had. If you want a novelty...I guess that's what it is...so sad.

This was our first visit. I had been reluctant to go because I had an image in my mind that this was more like a bar atmosphere. I was incorrect. It does have a full size bar, but it is in a separate room from regular dining guests. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. The portion sizes... More
