Very busy place and long wait time. The nice thing about the long wait time was that they asked for your cell phone number and told us it was ok to go walk around town and shop and that they wold call us when our table was ready - which they did, a very nice feature. The appetizer was chips... More

We went into the restaurant which only had a couple of customers. The sign said please wait to be seated, so we waited and waited and waited, looked at the menu while waiting, there was 3 girls in the back chatting away, so after 5 to 8 minutes of standing, we left. Service was horrible

It is very average at best. Menu has a lot of fried items on it. My wife's crawfish etouffe was warm and not hot. The fried shrimp were slightly over cooked. The hush puppies were over cooked.

Very casual and friendly restaurant. Great service. Take your cup with you as a souvenir. Catfish pasta was delicious with all the southern touches in it.

We stopped in for drinks and an appetizer while waiting for Christmas lights to come on. They are known for great Bloody Marys, and so I ordered one, along with grilled oysters. The oysters were underdone, and not great. The drinks were good, but expensive - $14.00 for one drink! We spent almost $50 for two drinks and oyster appetizers.... More

Tasty food and good drinks. Great for meeting friends or just stopping in for a quick bite while shopping at one of the quaint shops on Main Street. A must stop during the Christmas lights festival!

We always liked to stop in for lunch during our walkabout shopping and browsing on front street. Getting a table hasn't been a problem, we usually drop in after 1 in the afternoon though. The Catfish Supreme and fried crawfish tails are a favorite with Iced tea and adult cold brews. Good way to rest up and enjoy a nice... More
