The decor of this place is great. They have a casual vibe with a good menu selection. The outdoor patio seating was perfect. They also have a bar out there which is the perfect spot if you have to wait for a table.

Went with friends to enjoy the menu and some craft beers. My wife and friends all ordered the crab cakes and I had the jambalaya, all were done to perfection. The ozzie roles and bread basket rounded out the meal.

There is usually a long wait time to be seated. Seating at the bar is first come first serve. We always get excellent service and a great meal quickly!

Can't go wrong with any dish. Plus, they do a great job with their takeout. Food travels well because of the packaging.
