Came in for lunch, and was impressed with the food and quick service. Chicken gumbo was great, and a small was under $10. Not quite a full lunch, but good for me that day.

Staff was very friendly.

Wow! We were extremely impressed by Jimmy G's Wonderful service, especially by Molly, delicious and fresh seafood. Top 2 favorites were the blackened Boudain and the best ever Key Lime Pie! The restaurant is warm and cozy... has a great family feeling. Overall it was a wonderful place! We will be back!

Just a down home Cajun restaurant. Food is simple but delicious and service is friendly. Catfish is great, as is the gumbo but the grilled oysters are what takes the cake!!

I was at a hotel nearby and heard about this place. It is a nice enough restaurant and the food was good. I had grilled oysters, salmon, jambalaya, and a Diet Coke. The meal was $42. I was happy with the meal and service. It just seemed a little expensive for a non white table cloth establishment.

For a place absolutely lacking in decor, it makes this up by providing darn good food and fabulous service by our server Sammie. Sammie was phenomenal, wonderfully accommodating our flight-weary party that included two small children close to the restaurant's close. We started with an order of baked/BBQ'd oysters on Sammie's recommendation. She was right... they were fantastic! The kids fried fish is some of the best fried fish we've ever had, hands down. The four adults in our party all ordered different fish preparations (again, using Sammie's recommendation), and all were tasty. I must acknowledge here that we found the portions to be huge (Texas sized, perhaps?)... none of us were able to finish our dinners.

The restaurant does not have a full bar but can make a fairly decent margarita (especially good after a long flight). This restaurant is walking distance from the Hyatt Park Place, which is why we chose the restaurant, and we're really glad we did.
