The food is really good but not much other than things that are fried. It's a good place to go and chat with friends.

Went for my daughters Birthday. It was ok, but not real Cajun. Or let me say not any Cajun food I have tasted. They have some of the friendest servers and people working for them. It might be a great place as a pub.

Food is moderately priced except for the Lobster Bisque which is outrageous. Atmosphere is great. Like Marti Gras every day
