Enjoyed their food, but it looks like they've closed. I don't know if they've moved to a new location, but there is a new restaurant in this location now.

We ate lunch here. Husband had shrimp and catfish. I had grilled catfish which wasn't on the menu but the GM was very accommodating. The food was excellent! Service was excellent! The greeter even remembered my husband from the day before.

Stopped by during Elvis week. No brisket that day. Ordered some fried seafood. Not memorable. Potato salad was the most notable dish

We arrived 15 minutes before they closed for a late dinner. They greeted us warmly despite the fact that we were they only thing keeping them from closing on time. I enjoyed my meal. I had a seafood platter with crawfish and shrimp.
