This humble eatery has big Cajun/Louisiana flavours and at a great price point too. There's a lot to choose from on the menu. I had the Chicken Etouffee and was not disappointed. Thank you Chef Wayne!

I think that they do not take reservations. Just be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Also, it is a BYO for beer & wine. It's worth the wait...the food is delicious!

I looked on-line at their menus and didn't see that offering. They may rotate their menus and this would be served at other times during the year.
