The outside looks a bit iffy..... But once you step inside the front door it is like stepping into the New Orleans culture, food was excellent

Love the fried green tomatoes. I have to admit that although I try to order something else for a change I can't NOT have them. My friends give me a taste of their meals but I am reluctant to share mine!

They have an interesting menu and the food usually comes up to expectations - with the odd disappointment...... However, the location and ambience are wonderful as this little restaurant is situated right on the water overlooking the bay and the distant Malahat mountains - lots going on - kayakers, ferry, sailing boats etc. The waitress, depending who you get, is...

Came here for some beers and appy's. Had great service and food. Lovely views sitting out on over water patio. Make sure to use the washroom and check out the interior, lots of interesting stuff posted on the walls!

If you like jambalaya, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is very New Orleans and just a fun place for dinner. The view is superb, the food tasty and the service is fabulous! A bit off the beaten track but so much fun, I love discovering these local spots.

After years of visiting Brentwood Bay, and seeing this place, I was finally talked into stopping by by my seven year old. Boy, am I glad we did! Funky, small, wicked good. In the words of my son: "what's with this crazy-good sauce?!?" We shared the HUGE Whistling Dixie, and the Cajun chicken and rice soup. Go!!

This restaurant is a definite favourite. The menu is small but everything is great. The restaurant sits on pilings over scenic Brentwood Bay and nothing beats that on a sunny evening. The service is professional and I cannot think of anything negative to say about this lovely little restaurant.
