We discovered this place a few years ago and were told about it's great hamburgers and seafood. It's in a great location right on the river with beautiful views. The PoBoy sandwiches are a generous size and their fries and onion rings are excellent.

If you are going out to have a few drinks with your friends and want to be where you can also get some seafood - give this place a shot. As a sports-type bar (TV's everywhere) it's not bad. However, if you want to go...More

The oysters here were on the small side but were the best we have had in a long while. They were fresh. We also had a lb of boiled shrimp. They were very large with a wonderful flavor. Service was good. Waitresses were very friendly!...More
