Alan , the owner, has developed this place into my favorite restaurant. The food and service are great. The atmosphere is comfortable. In the summer, the outdoor patio is so pleasant

Decided to just have a bowl of chili so I would have room for dessert. Great decision! The chili was fabulous and the bread pudding was best I’d ever had!!!! Ate at the bar and service was good! Busy place.

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!
