I really like the outside area and the live bands. The crawfish were not my favorite. They were boiled and seasoned later. All they did was burn your lips with little flavor inside the crawfish. The beer were cold and plentiful.

We went for lunch with several friends on a Friday. They were not busy by any means but the food took forever to come to the table. The waitress was nice and it wasn't her fault but what a yucky place. The menus were dirty, the tables outside left paint on our clothes and skin. There were people smoking on the patio which I guess was legal but smoke drifted all around us and completely spoiled whatever taste was left in the food. If you want bad bar food, dirty restrooms, slow service and smoke then this is the place for you...as for us, NEVER AGAIN!

We decided to try it as it was handy, despite some bad reviews read here, think they must have been unlucky............nice place, lots of character, great hot food, nice waiter and good service. Could not ask for more. We would go back.

If you are looking for a slow cold over priced meal with poor service and a dirty restroom, look no further this is the place for you. If you would like a good meal here then stop by Mcdonalds and carry it with you to marvins. Marvin is starvin cause he wont eat his food either.

Great physical layout, fun décor, good music. Food is the problem. First, it is dirt cheap (most of the entrees run about 10-14 bucks) and there is a ton of it, two people can easily split one of the entrees.

However, of the three entrees at our table, none of them were particularly good. Not bad, just not very good. For example, my bbq chicken was a half a baked chicken that was drowned in a sea of raspberry syrup/bbq sauce right before it was served. Again, for 10 bucks with sides, it was cheap, but just not that good.

Service was surprisingly good for as busy as they were, and the bread was excellent. Be prepared to wait for a table--the place is hopping.

Next time, I'll probably go for drinks, appetizers, and music.
