Visited here during a business trip. The staff was very friendly. Veronica, our waitress, did a wonderful job serving us. The food was excellent. The Boudin was full of flavor. I will visit here again.

This is a restaurant that specializes in seafood dishes of shrimp, fish, lobster and other options. Food portions are large! They mainly serve gratin dishes and have the "Creole" style of New Orleans. Food is ok, but the restaurant needs renovation, as furniture and decoration...More
