Great little place. This locals place is know for their crawfish for good reason. They are flavorful and plentiful. I haven't even looked at a menu to see what else they have. Beer is cold. What more could I say? Cold beer and food crawfish!...More

If you want something that is fancy, do not go here. If you want great food, this is where you should go. We are already making plans to go back before we leave. Locals recommended it and we are glad they did.
