For the south, a good selection of IPA's! Ask to sit outside as it's quieter and overlooks the bayou. If it's cool, they have ceiling heaters. Good food too! Had the seafood pasta... excellent. Blue cheese dressing on the salad was chunky and thick! Ummmmm

Second time we’ve been here. I have been craving their char-grilled oysters since our first visit last year and they did not disappoint! Family-friendly atmosphere and menu.

This restaurant caterers especially well to large groups of young people. I’m not suggesting that they don’t do well with other groups this is just what I have experience with. We went there for my brothers birthday recently with a large group and the waitress...More

We have never made a reservation. Large venue with inside, outside and upstairs dining so it hasn’t been an issue. I guess if you have a large party maybe calling ahead might be a good idea.
