Wonderful food and pleasant servers! I had the chicken salad sandwich and cup of gumbo. It was excellent. My husband had the catfish topped with etouffee. It was also great!

Went for lunch on a Monday. Not too busy and immediately seated. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had chicken and sausage gumbo, excellent, and wife had chicken salad sandwich, also excellent. Prices were very reasonable and we will probably go back and eat again before we leave.

This is not exactly a place I would take young kids into on... More
