Don't construe 4-stars as criticism of the food... It was top notch. I was very pleased with my meal, as was my boss with his meal. My only complaint was that I felt the portions were on the small side. If you aren't a big...More

Have often enjoyed the flavors of New Orleans here and their huge portions. The catfish beignets are still crispy and good as are the heavily breaded but large oysters. The Works Etoufee is chock full of chicken, shrimp, spicy sausage and even tiny crawfish, but...More

Something for everyone here. Beignets are popular with our younger daughter, while our older daughter prefers the Pain Perdou (to die for, and I’m not a French toast person). My husband tried the blackened salmon benedict and the breakfast poboy on his next visit. Coffee...More

This is the real deal for Cajun cooking. Don't worry it isn't Hot but it is well seasoned food. I have gone for dinner and breakfast. The crawfish ettuffie omelet is to die for with home fries and biscuit for breakfast.

After reading all the Yelp reviews about the authentic creole dishes, I was very disappointed when I ordered the spicy shrimp and rice dish I ordered when I visited on August 10th. The tomato based sauce was spicy but lacked flavor. The shrimp was basically...More

It was great to have some interesting brunch items such as eggs Benedict on an artichoke base or the blackened salmon eggs Benedict. There are Cajun specials for those so inclined - andouille sausage, crabs, etc. There is not much atmosphere but the food and...More
