Damn I was impressed when I walked into this place. The whole time I was eating dinner, it did not feel like I was in OKC at all. This place has the NOLA vibe and feel. It would really throw people off, if the restaurant was smaller like the ones in NOLA. Besides that, the food was full of Cajun... More

I really enjoyed this place. Antonio the bartender was very cordial and took the time to inquire about my visit to OKC and showed a genuine interest. Super guy! Great place!

This is a quaint establishment. The inside is dark and rugged to me. The seafood was good. I happened to come on a day the Happy hour was serving a drink that was $5.00. Unfortunately, I can not remember the name of the drink but it was good; and I got to take home a souvenir cup. Worth a visit

Met a friend for dinner since it was near her hotel. The restaurant was not busy for a Sunday night. They had a couple of large groups but otherwise not many people. I had coconut shrimp and there were plenty of them. My friend had cajun crabcakes and I could tell she didn't like them. She is a big foodie... More

Gator bites were very small and had more bread than meat. I honestly forgot what type of fish I had. It was decent but nothing to rave about. Other guests seemed to enjoy the crab legs.

Rustic style dining, Cajun zydeco playing in the background. We had fried calamari to start. Shrimp/Scallops for me and my friend had the salmon on fettuccine. Both were tasty along with salad and a Butter Chardonnay. We were seated immediately ( holidays prepare for a little bit of a wait). Decor is homey with a mix of a seafood shack... More

My older kids and I enjoy the pots dumped on the table. Order the extra crab! Its a bit spicy, but fun to eat with your hands. Very laid back, loud restaurant.

Sounds fun to me too! :) Tip: You can also order the boils with garlic butter or the cajun seasoning. So if the cajun is too hot for the kiddos definitely try just the garlic next time. Hope that helps! Thanks for the review! Come back and see us! :) More

I have eaten here about 20 times in the past 12-15 years; it has been a good experience every time.The menu is vast & varied--not just shell fish. The food is always good--no matter what I order. The decor is eclectic & engrossing. There is a bar area & one can eat in the bar (& I have--more intimate). They... More

We drove a while trying to find a free parking spot, found it. Went in just to check it out as many cars there. Did not want eat so we went to the bar. Great people working and fun talking with them. We had more than a drink, check it out when in Oklahoma City.
