We were a family of 8 for lunch. The nice part was when you sat down the waiter delivered a couple of trays of samples. They were 6 to a tray. This gave you a great idea as to what you might want to order....More

This tiny spot on Main Street was busy even though we were there at an off-time. The unique thing is that they give you a sampler of 6 dishes, which helps the undecided or makes it difficult if you thought you knew what you wanted...More

We were there for lunch and the service was outstanding! Food was very authentic, comparable to dishes served in New Orleans. Love the sampler they bring out immediately after seating. We ordered the red beans and rice, fried catfish, and the Jambalaya. All were freshly...More

They had really delicious food! If you like fried things, such as fish, seafood, and absolutely the fried okra should try this place! Get the seafood gumbo!

We stopped in during our trip to Breckenridge. We had the seafood gumbo and the crawfish etouffee. Both were delicious and very authentic. Of course the beignets are not to be missed. We were the only table on the patio but the waitress took great...More

Their po-boys & beignets are the real deal. Authentic crispy airy New Orleans French bread they have flown in. Their beignets are the best I've ever had - much better than Cafe DuMonde's!

You won't find cajun cooking this good outside Louisiana... and you'd be hard pressed to find much better IN Louisiana. The host invited us in and welcomed us warmly. The server, Danny I believe, would be an asset to any restaurant anywhere. He was quick,...More

It probably depends on your timing. We visited on a Sunday for lunch, in October. Our group of eight was easily accommodated. It wouldn't hurt to call ahead.
