I found this place based on a 'local' referral. They have good food and casual 'mom&pop' atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but good food and good service.

Sandwiches are very good - shrimp and catfish poboys especially. Bisque and gumbo are always exceptional. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Prices are great
