Absolutely the freshest, best prepared seafood dish in town. Hands down. I always get the Barbequed Drum. It's that good. My wife orders the fresh catch or the Pontchartrain. You can't go wrong. We haven't tried any of the steaks, the gulf fish is just too good.

If you are in the Baton Rouge area and looking for Chargrilled oysters this is one of the best 2 places to go. My husband and I like to sit right at the bar and watch them prepare these while we wait.

This place was busy and popular. There food was solid but not the best I have had. I am a big gumbo fan but theirs was a little too sweet for me. The fried shrimp and catfish were tender and very fresh but were a little under seasoned for me as well. They had several other dishes on the menu... More

Beside that, hands down best experience there is. Zach our server was wonderful! I had the 8oz filet and I add blue... More

We arrived quite late on a Sunday evening to find parking quite limited and a crowd outside even at 9 pm.

We started with the bacon wrapped BBQ Shrimp, Crabmeat Stuffed mushrooms and of course the boudin balls. For my entree, I had to try the Andouille Fresh... More
