We had mild spicy mussels, shrimps and crabs at this restaurant. Quite a popular place, too. Quite an experience dining here. I enjoyed myself. Ate too much, too.

When you crave for some Louisiana style seafood cooking, come here early and enjoy! If you arrive during the popular times then bring your patience. Plenty of parking located right off 880. I ordered the special of the day and it was goooood.
