If you don’t know where to go, you’ve picked the right place for seafood. A good variety on menu. Louisiana folks love the food, and simply just good eating

We went here based on a few recommendations from local friends. When looking over the menu it seems pretty average but the food is excellent. I had the salmon with spinach and coleslaw. All was fresh and wonderful. We can’t wait to go back.
