Quaint place with menu options sure to please. Seasoned food that's not overly seasoned or priced. If you're looking for some great southern food and a friendly atmosphere, you'll be glad you stopped here.

Had the crawfish chowder and crawfish etouffe - both were very similar (with the later being a thicker and spicier version of the first) and tasty but not spectacular. Good sweet cornbread accompanied our dishes. The Voodoo shrimp was very good.

Nice drink menu and atmosphere, but the real treasure about this place is its amazing food. Extremely affordable, and downright delicious. The jambalaya is a phenomenal classic, but the po-boys are also fantastic. Would definitely recommend! Would advise to come in groups of 2 or...More

Two of us got sick after eating here. I had a long talk with the manager who finally admitted that some of the rice was suspect. He offered a $100 gift certificate, then I asked him "would you ever goalkeeper to a place that made...More
