My wife and I decided to dine here. We haven't been here for at least 30 years. We both enjoyed our meals. The waiter was friendly and efficient. The food was very good and ample. We would recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant was outstanding. Bar service, wait staff, knowledge of menu, quality of food and preparation of food are very good. Appetizer of creamy mac and cheese with crawfish, spicy redfish and great desserts. Left overstuffed and walked next door to the Rock and Bowl.
