It is worth the drive to go to this restaurant in Donaldsonville, LA. The downtown area is pretty “dead”, lots of closed storefronts. This restaurant seems to be thriving. It was packed with people, and for good reason -the food is phenomenal! The homemade blue...More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting a nearby plantation. We ordered the house salad, crab cakes, and a seafood gumbo. The salad was delicious, but the crab cakes came out barely warm with a cold sauce plopped on top. I could also taste the...More

Okay, I can see why this is the "hot spot" in Donaldsville. The atmosphere was friendly and lively, the food was good, and service was quintessential southern hospitality. Crab stuffed mushrooms were very oily.

Ate dinner there and it was just ok. Fairly expensive I guess. Service was very good. It is a very nice location and a very nice venue. The appetizers were very good but the main course was a bit disappointing.
