Good friendly service. Gumbo mostly rice. Steamed shrimp were small 35-40 count. Blackened shrimp larger, but not much flavor. For the cost , there are places with better atmosphere . Ok for lunch, but not a destination place.

The food was surprisingly very good here. I would come back for that, but would hopefully have better service. The waiter was super slow. You could tell he was about to get cut to go home and he was already checked out. Took 15-20 minutes...More

I had the grilled shrimp which was amazing. We waited over 30 minutes to have our order taken and another 45 minutes for our food. There seem to be plenty of staff but lack of execution.

Yes, but like the other responders, I am not sure what day(s) the special is offered. The Shrimp Basket is a bargain in any event for every order we have tried.
