I went with a group of friends, and we had a great experience. The live music and dancing was fantastic. Shrimp gumbo was delicious, and I highly recommend the blackberry cobbler! Billy gave excellent service.. He was fun and had a great sense of humor!...More

Group of three ate here for lunch. Very good down home cooking, portions were generous, wish we would have saved room for dessert.

Good value. Excellent flavor. Nothing canned here. 100% fresh prepared daily. The wait staff makes you feel like family. The atmosphere is home. Make a worthy effort to eat here.

Very friendly, casual place to eat! Shrimp pierogi was out of this world and really too much to eat. Rice and beans weren't seasoned too well. Out of bread pudding, but the p- nut butter pie was out of this world. Great old building too....More

I have had lunch there several times with my wife. We enjoy every visit. The food is very good and gives you a taste of traditional Louisiana cuisine. Can't wait to go back!

When you see a lot of pickup trucks parked at a restaurant you know the food is good and reasonably priced. Real Cajun food cooked home style.

I love their homemade pies. Especially the coconut cream pie! Gumbo & stews are very good,too. When you are seated, they place a basket of fresh french bread and butter on your table.
