If you love Cajun food then you must eat here. Outstanding catfish in a town that is hard to find fried catfish. Everything I have had there has been great! Family owned and a wonderful staff.

This is our third time to eat here, and each time the service, food, and waiter/waitress have been excellent. The price is a bit extravagant, but the quantity and quality are both worth it. Scallops are the real thing, gumbo is always really good, and...More
