I don't like to write negative reviews, but this situation was really pathetic. Maybe it was a fluke. Other people say that the food here is really good, but we had a very negative experience. We ordered the flounder, some boudin, and the chicken fried...More

I've lived close to this restaurant for a long time, but had no idea the quality of the food they serve. Very reasonably priced for what you get. The crab legs were some of the best I've ever had! Don't let the building fool you!

Great service and even greater food. We were in Longview for a training and saw them on the way out of town. Boy did they show the love. Some good old downsouth Cajun fiddles! Thank you Amy, Jason, and Sara!

You wouldn't know it by the looks of it, but this place is solid. Down home no frill atmosphere but the food is excellent. Great shrimp and friendly staff.

Found this place on a whim and had the crab legs and boiled shrimp, OMG they were to die for! Too bad we don't live around here or we'd be regulars for sure!
