I had a lovely meal of crawfish etoufee and fried shrimp. I had a scrumptious brownie for dessert. The meal was pricey, but it was so delicious it was well worth the price! I'm going back again for certain!

This is a beautiful restaurant. My son and I stopped in for dinner. He really liked his chicken dish. It was covered with crawfish tails and a brown roux. My gumbo was huge but not very flavorful. They have their own garlic and pepper sauces...More
