We were the only ones in the place, they had the soap opera on the tv, waitress had a hard time walking so I met her half way for a coffee refill. The hash browns were horrible, must have been left over from that morning or the day before. The eggs and bacon were ok but lots of grease.

Being from Oregon we really enjoyed the culture shock of of great Southern Style Cooking! After being 10' under water during Katrina Penny's is now a great hub of southern hospitality! We had the Grilled Biscuit , Shrimp n Grits and Spicy Poboyz. All were great! We also tested the bawled peanuts and hogshead cheese ... yum...

Had the buffet because I was in a hurry. Dirty rice & baked chicken was very good. Not a big selection on the buffet. Great service and good food.

Absolutely love the daily lunch buffet, everything from Red Beans to Liver to Fried Chicken and more. On Friday's check out the seafood buffet featuring fresh LOUISIANA Fried Shrimp, oh my god to die for, Definitely visit this little hidden gem in St. Bernard Parish.

Their food potions are large. When u order onion rings the pile is high and their even made from scratch. Omelets take up an whole oval plate. All of the time u can make up what omelet or burger you want.
