Staff terrible. Seating and tables horrible and very old. Decor was ok (its all old news clippings) . The food was outright nasty. Old batter, everything tastes stale. Got a very upset stomach after eating here. Will never do it again.

Nothing really stood out except the smell of wet/damp carpet. Oh man, I've eaten here before but during my recent visit as I entered the smell was so strong I had to leave. Hint, Change the carpet.

Food was low quality to the point of inedible. The saving dish was the seafood gumbo. The wait was very long and food disappointing.
