The food was great...flavorful and huge portions! My husband had both the jambalaya and the gumbo, and I had the oyster dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed both, and will definitely be driving up from South Carolina to eat there again. There was definitely enough to take...More

We visited thus establishment today for lunch for the first time. I ordered the red beans and rice, which comes with a protein choice, and I picked fried catfish. The red beans were creamy and mild, steaming hot, and came with crispy fried catfish and...More

This is a small, casual restaurant that packs AMAZING flavor! The gumbo is simply outstanding, and if you're lucky, they may have homemade heavenly hash ice cream!

Excellent Cajun food. I ordered the Jambalaya with oysters. Could not have asked for a better meal. Been to New Orleans twice and it was even better than there. Had to bring the leftovers home but ordered dessert also. How can you not order Pecan...More

Excellent Cajun food, pasta and seafood. The gumbo is the best I've tasted outside of Louisiana. The only issue is that it's a very small place with a small kitchen, which limits the menu. I would love to see what they could do with jambalaya!!!

Food is good but too expensive. Creole plate with 6-7 shrimp is over $17. Two people with sweet tea comes to $40. I don’t see this place lasting long with the prices which is too bad because the staff is super friendly and the food...More

Well thanks for giving us a try. I glad you liked it. But, unfortunately we can not drop our prices all of our seafood comes from the gulf so it is a little bit more expensive for us to get. All in all if you...More

We stopped here for lunch recently and were thrilled with the authentic cajun offerings on the menu! We paid a bit more than we would normally pay for lunch (it seems the same menu/prices apply for lunch or dinner); but overall were so pleased with...More
