Food, overall, is average but atmosphere is the real draw here. In fact, can think of no better views and setting in South LA. Onion rings consistent.

I eat here with my grandchildren when I can. It's a great place with indoor and outdoor seating. There is a boardwalk that wanders down into the woods. Lots of fun for the kids. Food is good and service is excellent. I've never had a bad meal here. Spinach artichoke appetizer is great.

Great for late night and some wonderful Chargrilled oysters. A beer list to suit my daughter and a full bar with some ok wines as well. So all in all a really good... More

My husband & I stopped in to grab a drink & late night bite to eat after visiting family. The chargrilled oysters were pretty good & we really enjoyed the loaded fries. After eating we walked around the beautiful deck that leads to the river. I only wish we could have gone during the day to get a better look... More

We know people who keep eating here, but after two tries by us, we're done with the food in this place. I'll return to drink beer from the various and large number of selections always available. But both times we ate food here we could not get past the outrageously over-salted nature of our meals. One time it was fried... More

A beautiful restaurant with a back patio that is very inviting, especially in nice weather. It overlooks the Bogue Falaya River. The food is good. It has a huge bar with many beer offerings.

Loved eating on the deck with out-of-town friends. Waiter was fabulous by helping us put together a flight of locally brewed beers. Very generous-sized portions of the most deliciously prepared foods. Definitely the place to go with friends.

This place is huge and has a very large bar crowd that is always busy every night of the week. The food is decent and the service is usually pretty good but it is just too loud to have an enjoyable meal. They do have outdoor seating on a deck overlooking the river where the noise is not nearly as... More
