“Nice atmosphere. Pretty good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

The food here is pretty good but not great. I had the crawfish platter. It would have been better if I had some kind of dipping sauce for the fried crawfish tails. But they were still good without it. My wife got crawfish enchiladas and they were really tasty. The appetizer, the gator and crab cheesecake, was unique and the sauce on it was excellent, but it was rather small, especially for two people. The decor was very neat and the live zydeco band was a nice touch.

Referred by a local while on a cross-country trip. Great "swamp" atmosphere, great service, excellent food, rich creamy sauces.

“Lives up to the reputation!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Great dinner with the family when we were passing through from Pensacola driving home to the Houston area. Eight of us all had something different and no one was disappointed. The gumbo lacks the vegetables we're used to (celery, okra, onions, bell pepper) but was so flavorful we didn't miss them! The seafood fondue was a great way to start, as well as the crawfish boudain balls. The dinners we all had were excellent.. the rice dressing was a tad dry... but overall a great meal. The bread pudding was great!!!

“decent, but not spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

The atmosphere here is ok, kind of a sports bar/restaurant vibe. The service was good enough, prompt and courteous. The food was a bit of a let down, I was expecting some Cajun fire on my blackened catfish, but only got a little spice. The crawfish gumbo it came with was tasty, adding a little of the hot sauce on the table made it even better.
