“Just had dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We stayed at the hotel but mostly ate other places. We did have a nice fat piece of cheesecake one night at The Jetty. It was really good but it was $5 per piece.

“Convenient and Fairly Priced Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

A hostess was passing out flyers while we were watching Mardi Gras Parades inviting guest for lunch. We walked in because it was convenient. Wait staff was very attentive and kind.

“Great food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We enjoyed their breakfast each morning. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch. Everything was fresh. The fresh fruit was delicious, especially the Honeydew Melon. They buy their produce from a good vendor.

“Slightly overpriced, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

This restaurant is in the Holiday Inn. The night we were there, only 2 other tables occupied. Wait staff was very good, I think our server was new at the job, but she did a good job. Other staff also checked on us to make sure we were doing OK. May have been because it was slow, but we appreciated the attention, which still managed to be unobtrusive. Wine selection small, but very tasty and reasonably priced.
We had cups of gumbo, very flavorful. We're not gumbo experts, but we would have this one again anytime. Instead of a main course we had appys - queasadilla; calamari; and crab cakes. All were very good - none was the best we've ever had, but all were well done.
However, portions were small for the price, or said another way, food was over-priced.
We did finish with two desserts - cheesecake and a double chocolate cake. We got both to go, and here, the portions were very big - so much so that we split them and when we ate them and had them over 2 nights. They did not just plop them into the Sytrofoam to-go containers, they were presented as if they were on a plate - drizzled sauce over the top, piped whipped cream on the side - they gets kudo's for presentation. I'd eat here again, even though price was a little high in my opinion.
