Fried green tomatoes with Shrimp is excellent! Service was excellent. Nice couples atmosphere in a local, original building. So nice. Our best "romantic meal" on our vacation!

We live in area and go to their Sunday buffets - and it is fantastic. Everything you could possibly think of on a brunch. Cocktails are great as well

Food portions were big but the overall meal was on the pricey side. Two of our party had the pork chops; I had the amandine; another had the porchetta with a seafood bowl. Loved being right on the bayou. Excellent atmosphere.

Had dinner with friends and the service was good. Little low on selection because of a festival. We returned the next morning for brunch and it was incredible. Music and food was wonderful.
