The raw oysters were very good. We thought there would be music but not this Saturday night. Ask the locals what to order. We order steak and sea spuds which were just ok.

The food here was delicious! The staff was super friendly and more than accommodating for the wedding rehearsal dinner. It’s a bit of a haul to get there but worth every minute. Louisiana cuisine at its best!

Great spot for locals. The shrimp cocktail is the best ever. Only issue is every time I order onion rings, I get fries? Go Thursday nights for local music.

Good food, music and dancing, Service was great, after we ate the waitress asked if we wanted anything else so we ordered a cocktail, she said, "Great Ya'll can stay all night if you want, we don't close until 10:00!"

We were with a large group and had a good meal. The catfish with Eteuffee was excellent. With a large group, the service was a little slow and there were a few errors.

The reviews that say don't judge by exterior are spot on. This place was huge! A party of 8 at 6:00 Friday Night sat & served right away, but don't think they were not busy cars were lined up! Music up front was awful, loud...More
