We get there late on Tuesday so it was quite empty. However, the staff was nice and I like the ambiance. The selection of beer satisfied me. I believe it's a nice place to grab a drink after a long day in the office.

Really great location in Market Square near downtown/convention center hotels. Live music should be a plus but it is overpowering if you have an inside table or are sitting at the bar on a Fri night so I don't recommend it for dinner on a...More

This was the description given to me by the very friendly waiter, and I think it's right on. The owner is reportedly not from NOLA and operates a variety of themed restaurants in town, but it is apparent the research has been solid. Having lived...More

Always good live music weekdays around 7pm. Not a fan of the Cajun food. Service can be a challenge on Fridays.

Thank you so much for your feedback. Please ask for me on your next visit. While our menu is Cajun/Creole inspired, not all the menu items are spicy. I would love to personally walk you through our menu.
