We had our anniversary brunch here and it was fabulous. I had the shrimp and corn chowder and my husband had the shrimp and grits. Both of it was the best we have ever eaten. Even the coffee was the best. We will go back.

We walked in for lunch on a Saturday and were seated immediately. Great service and excellent food. We had the crab Timbale and Bronzed Salmon. Our server brought samples of their Gumbo and Crawfish Gravy. Both were excellent. Laid back, local vibe. Unfortunately for us,...More

I think it depends on time of day and age of kid's. In the front and outside are less formal. The back is more quiet. At dinner might not be so good with little one's in the back. I hope this helps!
