“Local Recommendation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff when we asked for a restaurant that had good friend catfish. We were a party of 10.

We ordered a variety of items from the menu, catfish included. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My favorite was the "Craw Puppies." It's crawfish and onions stuffed inside a hush puppy. Yum! Several of the others ordered the chargrilled oysters. They really enjoyed those too. No one had any complaints about the food. There is also a full service bar.

My negative comment would be the environment. The atmosphere was more like a sports bar. The restaurant was busy, loud and distracting. Not the place to go if you want to relax. The food was much better than the atmosphere.

I would return, however, because the food is worth the environment.

“Love the oysters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Gotta love the grilled oysters but that's not the only good thing they have. The fried seafood is wonderful. The service is always very good. We always love our visits to this wonderful restaurant. A must for anyone visiting New Orleans.

“Good Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Service was excellent. Food and atmosphere were good. However, a bit noisy but tolerable. The fried fish was a bit over cooked, but still tasty. Would recommend to anyone.

“Loud Fried Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Decent food. The environment was too rushed, loud and un relaxing. I would not recommend this location. Food was ok. Just couldnt enjoy our meal with the atmospheric challenges.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Three adults shared the Captain Mike's Seafood platter with a side order of 2 pieces of fish and one dozen raw oysters. We had plenty of food for each of us. Fried oysters, shrimp, fish, stuffed crabs, crab meat balls, hush puppies, fries and french bread. Yummy, yummy, yummy. Very well priced. This is our favorite dish to order and our favorite restaurant. Acme in downtown New Orleans does not have this plate. Great service and great food.
