The food was good and fresh. I was surprised that the fried fish was breaded in cornmeal. I expected a battered breading. The cajun shrimp plate is real good.

Been around for over 20 years, they serve the freshest seafood available. The shrimp always have that sweet taste. The menu has traditional Gulf fried food and Cajun spiced varieties. All the fried food is extremely well done. Boiled crawfish when available are superb. Boiled crab is also available. No oysters on the half shell. Order at the counter. Beer. A locals favorite. Doesn’t look like much, but the food is fantastic.

Was surprised to walk in and order at counter. Place had a funky smell. Felt rushed to order at counter. Got shrimp and fish plate, shrimp was good but not the rest. Coleslaw wad very dry. Could not enjoy my food, it was all piled up in a small plate. Daughter got brioled shrimp, she did not like it. Didn't have any flavor.

Quality seafood. Came highly recommended by our grad. Stuffed shrimp was delicious. Gave rating of 4 due to small portion of oysters on po-boy. 6 small oysters on 6 inch roll just doesn't make sense. I pointed it out to the server. And manager said 6 was all I'd get.

Look, if you're gonna eat fried fish, it ought to be good. This was fabulous. We had whitefish, shrimp, oysters, crab balls and it all tasted like its fish of origin, not just breading. I also had a cup of the jambalaya and it was tasty.

We sat outside to take advantage of the view, but the flies and birds are a bit annoying and this was in December. Better to stay inside.

Service was top-notch. I have been in $$$$ places and not had such attentive service. Everyone was great. Will definitely return.
