Went here on a recommendation and it was very short distance from our hotel. I had the crawfish etoufee but it was just so-so. They do serve beer and offer a broad menu of cajun food.

I had the Stuffed Gumbo, which was shrimp, chicken, sausage gumbo with a catfish fillet. Oh my. My wife had the fried... More

If want a true taste of New Orleans EAT HERE! Metairie has some of the best little authentic places and this one is one of the best. I had the chicken Jefferson and it was amazing. Bread pudding was on point. Best little local place I've been to in a long time.

My son had the gumbo and I had a shrimp po boy. My son said he enjoyed the gumbo but could have used a little bit more spice in it. My po boy was very good. The breading on the shrimp was very enjoyable. The Chef came out while we were there and talked to a few of the tables.... More

I was staying down the street at one of several hotels in the area and ate here a couple of times. I could have eaten here every night if my co-worker had been more open to cajun food. Chef Ron knows how to cook and I enjoyed the best gumbo and jambalaya meals I've ever had. Plus they had a... More
