Great menu for brunch! Their creole omelet was packed with sausage, peppers, onions and the creole sauce just made it even better. Reservations ARE STRONGLY recommended for Brunch. The place was packed and the atmosphere was stellar! Keep this place in your restaurant radar!

The red beans and rice was tasteless. The other cajun options were pretty good. The stuffed shrimp was really good and the fried oysters were good. The cheese grits were good. Be prepared to pay a steep price at this location.

This is my favorite place to eat in Louisville. Ambience is excellent. Staff is always friendly and courteous. Food is all good. My husband always does the ribeye, but I have tried different dishes, and have never been disappointed! Save room for the bread pudding!

Was with a group of friends, and while on patio in late December it was kept very warm, the service was great for a large group and food was even better than expected. Would highly recommend and plan on returning soon.
