We were attending my wife's 50th high school reunion. Had eaten here before and wanted some really good Louisiana cooking. The oysters were excellent even though they don't shell them on site. The crawfish were in season so I had the three pound plate. I was the last to finish the meal because these suckers take time to clean. Two... More

I've been here before a few years back and I've come again. Always great service and the owners seem to really care about their business which is awesome. Highly recommended when going through Shreveport

Will start by saying we are from the northwest and this is our first trip to the South and experience with local southern or Cajun cooking. We had the fried fish, boudin balls, pickled tomatoes, gumbo, and cornbread with crawfish. Everything was delicious. Spicy, not to hot. Place was very busy, service was excellent, server well informed about the dishes,... More

Took family here while visiting. They had never been. Party of 5. Made a rez. Table was waiting for us. Our server was very attentive and very Good! We ordered 3 lbs of boiled crawfish to share as an appetizer. The tails were so small that they were hardly worth dealing with. Flavor and spice was spot on. We were... More

We're not about providing a hit-or-miss experience, Chris, so it's disappointing to see that's what you got. We were surprised to hear that the crawfish were on the smaller side, too -- that's not like us at all. Overall, we know we can do a lot better than what you last experienced, so here's hoping we'll get that chance sometime... More

The eye-popping platters of crawfish do not disappoint, and the crawfish etoufee over cornbread is indescribably delicious. Our wonderful server Meka showed us how to properly get out the "mud bug" tail meat, and kept our glasses filled with cold water to keep the spicy mouthburn to a pleasant buzz. An excellent and fun eating good time.

Nice size, good seasoning, not to hot or salty. Best onion rings around! Of course, cold beer! Inside and covered patio seating. Always crowed, go early.

The food is good, but not spectacular. I had the fried shrimp po'boy and a cup of gumbo. The po'boy was very good: the shrimp was nicely seasoned, but the rest of the sandwich was pretty bland. The gumbo was okay, but there was little seasoning. I would think that a Cajun place would not have such bland food. The... More

We're always going for spectacular, so it's disappointing we didn't quite make it there. Regardless of what you order, every dish should be perfectly prepared and bursting with flavor -- much like you experienced with the boudin balls. Additionally, the great service you received is much more indicative of the overall experience we're looking to offer. Here's hoping you'll give... More
