The food was good and service attentive. We enjoyed the fried shrimp and baked seafood platter. The kids enjoyed the fish and chicken fingers.

Two locations. Larger restaurant is large sit down room. Great service and wide selection. Fried shrimp is great. Gumbo is great. Local and tourist favorite. Canal Road location is drive in and is always crowded. Worth the wait.
