This was recommended to us and when we saw the line we were tempted to leave. Glad we stayed. The food was great. Fish with the etouffe was great as well as the veggies. Well worth the wait.

Best Bloody Mary I've ever had! Everyone there was overly friendly. I was given a friendly greeting by at least 10 people who worked there on the way to the patio. The food was perfect! Very tasty, I would totally go back!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
