Came here for a late birthday celebration weekend for my mom. She loves jazz and spicy food. Thought this place would be great but we were very disappointed. They were playing the Beatles so loud that doting directly next to my sister I was still yelling for her to hear me. The food was awful, like it had been cooked a week ago and left under a warmer. It was actually sour like it had gone bad. Even the people next to us seemed to have the same problem. We paid our bill and threw the food away ourselves. Had to go to a fast food place to grab some burgers cause we were so hungry by then. The waiter was sweet and the decorations were different but never again will we go or recommend this place.

The atmosphere was great. The live music was fantastic. The food was just ok. It was not good Nawlins food. It was hot and presented well.

There is a variety of food to choose from and the prices are reasonable. The bartender is great and makes great drinks, not watered down.
Only problem is that we said we were there to hear the band. We got there 30 min early. We thought we were sitting next to the band stand. When the band came on They were above and behind us. We couldn't see them at all and couldn't hear them very well. it was a special event for us (anniversary) and it would have been nice to hear and see what we had been waiting for.
For the most part, we had a great waiter and he was a lot of fun. He kept forgetting things we asked for (more napkins, refills on our drinks...he forgot this 3-4 times, the appetizer). We are BIG tippers but since these things we were only big tippers.

Stopped in for lunch on Saturday, and we were disappointed.

Staff was very friendly, our waitress was great. The atmosphere and décor made for enjoyable dining.

The main reason we stopped was for food and the food was terrible. $9 for 4 shrimp and 4 clams with some coleslaw, my wife ordered grilled chicken and when her plate came her food was cold. They took it back and microwaved it to warm it up. Her meal was also $9.

The restroom was pretty bad and had a terrible odor, almost like wet dog.

I would NOT recommend this place to anyone looking for a good filling meal. I do believe it would be a great place to have a drink and to listen to music in the evening.

With all the eateries in the area you will find a better meal for the same price.

We really enjoyed the music as well as the food. A bit on the pricey side but the food is well worth it. There is a large selection to try. I had the Cajun chicken sandwich very good. The staff is friendly and the service was quick. Will try again sometime.
