We stopped here for a drink at the bar before deciding where to eat but our four drink (wine and beer) came to $40 which we thought was a rip-off, so we ate elsewhere.

Tuesday's Gulf Drum special was hands down the best fish I have ever had...service was exceptional (thank you Raymond!) and atmosphere relaxed and comfortable. Gumbo was also exceptional. Will definitely go back next month when I am back with family.
