The biggest problem is wanting to order everything on the menu. I always eat lunch here. The ingredients are always fresh and the daily specials are to die for.

They're food is amazing and always consistent. They just have to watch their language especially when there are kids in the restaurant. Great food just need to keep the swearing to a minimum. Highly recommend trying their food tho. The pulled bbq pork is a favorite for us.

Don't plan on a swanky restaurant. This is a "hole in the wall" with really good food. Almost drove right past it. You walk in and seat yourself. Servers were very friendly and welcoming. Not very many tables although when we were there it wasn't very busy but I can imagine there being a wait in the evenings and weekends.... More

Great Cajun-style cuisine... really good catfish and crab cakes... favorite dish is the chicken and waffles (which is seasonal unfortunately). And its BYOB :)

The food is great but seating sucks! Take out is the way to go, it's quick. The people who work their are very kind also.

If you're looking for that somewhere with unique cuisine that's extraordinarily delicious, then this is the place. Great food, friendly staff that make you feel right at home, and the best food in the Pioneer Valley.

Chef Wayne knows what's what! The food is absolutely great, and don't take it from me - get there a minute too late, and you're standing in line with 20 people who know good food when they are served it. We waited Saturday night about 20 minutes, which is really nothing. Funny thing was, the weather wasn't all that good... More

Great for lunch but best for dinner. Limited seating so be prepared to wait on Friday and Saturday night. Bring your own bottle to have with Cajun dishes and if your lucky enough and not to busy, chef Wayne may even sit and talk with you. A must do

Hubby and I travelled to Springfield to catch a Louis C.K. concert last summer. We were looking for a place to eat near our hotel and happened upon Big Mamou - what a treat! We had an amazing meal at a reasonable price. We went rather early before our concert but the next night we walked by a bit later... More
