I have been to this restaurant many times and I can tell you that their gumbo can hang with anything in New Orleans. It may be too spicy for most folks and they could stand to turn it down a notch. The fried shrimp and the crawfish (when available) are always delicious.

Fairly new to SA from Houston...shrimp crab cake Alfredo was strange. Wifey had grilled shrimp was good. Guess we expected more from a seafood...Cajun restaurant. I simply asked young waitress if we could have bread and butter...she snapped..."Yes, if you give me a minute ". Excuse me for breathing.

The fried shrimp is great as is the baked potatoe and hush puppies. The fried fish is plentiful with a light crust. The seafood gunbo is a must try. Marla our waitress is always great and keeps our drink glasses full. Charlie the owner comes by your table to make sure everything is going well. Never dissapointed!

Pretty good service and the mahi-mahi we had was OK... The waiter (wish I'd remembered his name...) did a very good job. There was a group of us and he managed to serve all of us in an efficient manner...

The food is decent but you can find as good or better at same price point within a couple of miles east or west. The service is terrible and it starts when you arrive. The hostesses have no idea of how to manage a wait list must less an actual reservation which we had. Being seated 45 minutes after our... More

We had been hearing about this place for a while. Because it is not close to our home, we had not tried it. Coming back from a doctor's appointment, we had an opportunity to stop. The space is very well thought-out. There is a foyer, with seating for those waiting for tables. There is more bench seating in front of... More

The food was actually pretty good! Full of flavor and reasonable portions. I had read raves about the bread pudding and have to say that it was good but by no means the best. All that said, I'm not sure what was going on with the service. there were no more than 5 active tables at any given time in... More

Went with husband on Saturday afternoon. Had heard positive things about restaurant. Ordered shrimp plate, husband ordered catfish & shrimp. Both plates very bland as far as taste goes. The breading on shrimp fell off, tasted like it was breaded in flour. Disappointment! Positive note: deep fried artichokes were excellent, service was good. Food was overpriced. We won't go back.

The good was ok but I spent the afternoon in the restroom. I have no idea what they put in there. My friend was also feeling pretty crummy too.

This place is the best when it comes to seafood. The fish and shrimp dishes are plentiful and delicious. Any crawfish dish is good and authentic cajun. The service is always great. You will not be dissapointed at this restaurant.
