Food was good, traditional southern style. The grits were creamy, lamb shank was good well, the meat fell off the bone, but I've had more tender than I was served.

This restaurant was outstanding. Bar service, wait staff, knowledge of menu, quality of food and preparation of food are very good. Appetizer of creamy mac and cheese with crawfish, spicy redfish and great desserts. Left overstuffed and walked next door to the Rock and Bowl.

We ate here before heading to Rock and Bowl to hear zydeco band. Good food. We ate at the bar as the restaurant was full, even early. Save your receipt and you get $5 off cover charge for Rock and Bowl.

Nicely remodeled spin on a classic New Orleans local place. Wonderful preparation, and interplay of flavor. Fish was cooked to perfection and sides are fresh. Shrimp and grits was excellent with a great marinade for the saute, topped with a light but flavorful BBQ sauce....More
