Really nice lunch. We got the Cajun potato which was a baked potato topped with crawfish etouffee. It was great. Also got a side of chicken salad which was excellent too. The bread pudding was good as well.

Great variety of food with a friendly waitstaff. Loved the bread pudding! Didn’t have to wait for a table even though the place was full when we walked in. Food was great with little wait.
