I had the shrimp and catfish platter - came with bread, hush puppies and fries. My husband had blackened speckled trout with garlic mashed potatoes and buttered Brussel sprouts. All the food was wonderful - there was just too much food to eat! Seating on...More

Had a great supper here. The crab cakes were great! My husband had the froes oysters. They came on a huge plate. A little expensive but worth it.

Definitely some of the most enjoyed meals we had while in NOLA. The seafood was perfect. The red beans and rice here were the best we had. Fun atmosphere. Make a reservation - but worth the wait!

So disappointed in this place as a whole. I ordered the 1/2lb shrimp w/ sausage, corn, & potatoes. My husband ordered the steak. His steak came out by itself......20 minutes later he was done eating & I had just received my lukewarm food. We then...More

Good location, good service but food was just so so and pretty pricey. I tried the fried green tomato with shrimp po-boy, did not have much flavor even with the sauce on it.

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, and even the first impression inside may make you wonder. But then you are greeted by a friendly hostess, then a friendly waiter. Our waiter knew his job, enjoyed it, and made our time there pleasant....More

We were looking for something a bit different than creole and fried seafood when we determined that spiced shrimp would be perfect. The smells from the restaurant are evident when walking through the French Quarter/French Market. Prices weren't bad and portions were generous. This was...More

I love boiled shrimp. While walking through the French Market passed this restaurant and saw and smelled the boiling pot. Smell was amazing. Went in had the shrimp and they were great. Maybe the best boiled shrimp I've ever had.

If you love crayfish, this is the place. I had the blackened fish, it was dry, over cooked, the mashed potato were good but salty. I would not recommend this place. There are so many great places to eat in Nola. Our waiter, don't recall...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

We do take reservations for parties of 9 or more on a non-event week or weekend. Due to such a high volume of business during New Years, Mardi Gras , French Quarter Festival, etc, we do not take reservations. We can be... More
