You must start with an order of Mama's Bread. Hot and fresh, it can't be beat. The appetizers are a treat! We often get several to share. For entrees we love the grits with crawfish jalapeno sauce and the seafood au gratin. Because of the...More

We asked for our oysters to be fried in skillet rather than deep fried and they were happy to do so. The decor is charmingly antique, no reproductions, the real things. Waiters are friendly and attendant. You will love this place.
