Been here before and remembered how good tthe fish nd gumbo dishes were -- large portions -- topnotch service -- right off the Causeway heading north - just before the turn onto I-10 East -- going back again next week or so -- best dish is the drumfish special

Went here on a recommendation and it was very short distance from our hotel. I had the crawfish etoufee but it was just so-so. They do serve beer and offer a broad menu of cajun food.

If your looking where the locals eat, it's here. I love eating at places where the kitchen staff takes pride in the food and the front help love their jobs and believe in the food, (our waiter's comment).

If want a true taste of New Orleans EAT HERE! Metairie has some of the best little authentic places and this one is one of the best. I had the chicken Jefferson and it was amazing. Bread pudding was on point. Best little local place I've been to in a long time.
