It’s small it’s in the sticks but it’s fantastic. What you’d expect on the menu and done right. Side note: if you’re not a big eater get the small portions and you can byob. Just go. You’ll be glad you did!

Great Louisiana dishes. If you want the real thing you have to try this place. Small restaurant with great service and entertainment.

We are fans of small and poorly lit restaurants. This one has both. The food is great and consistent. The top dish I would recommend is the crawfish and shrimp étouffée, but they have something for everybody. Average price for large dish is 20-25 dollars....More

This place is fun and I love to bring my own hootch. The food isn't legendary (I've been here many times) but it's a different outing with friends in the middle of nowhere. You wait in the parking lot until you get to come inside...More

They serve water and sometime tea but if you want beer or wine you have to bring it with you. Bringing it is a good idea because the food really calls for those kid of drinks.
