Friends swear by the place, so gave it a try. Ambiance is cheap pirate. Service is indentured slavery. Food is mediocre. I found it pricey for the quality. The portions are large, so for hungry folks or those who think more is better, this is...More

I ordered the crabcake lunch and my friend had the bayou shrimp. I liked my crabcake, but it needed more old bay seasoning. Fortunately, they have it on every table in a shaker. My friend said his meal was very good. If you request it,...More

I have 2 boys, ages 10 & 7. There is no children's menu currently on-line, but there are plenty of good selections on the kid's menu, such as fish, burgers, and chicken nuggets. My boys had a great time here!!!
