My family has a history of enjoying a meal here about once a year when we make a trip to the coast using in July. This time we visited in off season and the restaurant was not nearly as busy! All the seafood was in season and tasted great. We started with the oysters and beers. We then had the... More

Went here for lunch and was not disappointed. Wait staff was friendly and service was fast. They do have other items on their menu but the specialty was the Cajun Boil. They will bring it out in a bowl and dump it right on your table covered in white butcher paper. The Boil consists of shrimp, sausage, potatoes, corn, and... More

This is typical crawfish boil type food. They dump the pot of food complete with crawfish, shrimp, potatoes, sausage, and corn (depending on what you order) on the table (which is covered) in front of you and your party. Spicy and a little privy but definitely worth it for those who like this type of food.

The food was good if you like spicy. The atmosphere was laid back and it was a fun experience with the grandkids. You do have to crack your food and it's poured out on the table for you to eat with your hands. I don't care for spicy food so it wasn't my favorite but if you do. You will... More

This place is unique, delicious & fun. It is very very messy, so be prepared to throw proper etiquette out the window.

Exactly what we expected, Cajun style dining. Hot & spicy with everything served directly on your table. Service was fine. Oysters on the half shell were great and kids enjoyed the messiness of fine dining. Prices were fair.

This is the real Cajun deal. The first thing we noticed was the parking lot was made out of crushed oyster shells. Then we saw a truck pull up with fresh seafood from the boat! They didn't have any blue crab because their trap broke, but they replaced it with more shrimp in the boil. The food was great and... More

This place is expensive it's relatively dirty inside and most importantly they were sold out of crab and crawfish and it's expensive so all our buckets had corn potatoes and some shrimp one of our buckets didn't even have any potatoes in it it was really sad. First and last time most likely.

You need to make a stop here for some amazing seafood!! It's always busy but the wait is never too long. I recommend eating family style to get the best deal. Their crawfish are just the right kind of spicy and the sides are always great!!
