Atmosphere is down home and comfortable casual. Nice bar and tables for single diners as well as large parties. Great bacon wrapped shrimp and gumbo! Save room for the bread pudding which is top notch!

My family and I eat here a lot. They have good fried seafood. The stuffed crab is delicious. The kids can always find something to make them happy. The best item on the menu is the bread pudding...the sauce really puts it over the top!
