Had a great meal for a birthday dinner. Started out with a martini at the bar, followed by dinner. They had some balloons on the table for the birthday celebration. Chicken /sausage gumbo is very good. Pork Chop and also rabbit dinner were delicious.

I had the BBQ shrimp which was phenomenal!!! The shrimp were huge, but the sauce really made it. The sauce was unlike anything I’ve ever had. My husband had the pasta jambalaya which he also enjoyed. Very friendly service as well!

Had brunch and ordered eggs Benedict and eggs came out cold and the muffin was not cooked at all. And the coffee came about 10 minutes after the meal - I guess they had to make that !

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
