First of all the food is really good. The service is what kills it. They are notorious for being super slow. Prepare to take at least 1.5 - 2 hours for lunch. If you call in a to-go order and they give you a time, add at least 20 minutes to that. It is ridiculous when you call in an order for a SALAD and they tell you 20 minutes, and you arrive at the restaurant 20 minutes later and it takes an additional 20 minutes for the kitchen help to bring the bag out and then another 5 minutes before the waitress gives it to you. For a SALAD!! This is normal for them, and never is there an apology. It's a shame because the food is very good. Also be prepared to sit at your table without a beverage or refill.

This restaurant has very good Cajun style dishes. Great drinks along with atmosphere. Restaurant typically has someone singing and playing acoustic guitar's during weekends.

The bar-be-que shrimp arrived in a tasty sauce with enough French bread to share and enjoy the whole bowl. A unique dish that is worth the drive. A really good Shrimp Po'boy with a small house salad made a perfect lunch. The ranch dressing and poppy seed dressing are both made "in house" and are excellent. Friendly attentive staff.

The service was very quick. The food was good. I had the blackened catfish. It was very spicy, well-cooked. It came with red beans and rice, salad and bread. On a previous visit I had had the BBQ shrimp appetizer and poppy seed salad, and liked that much better, the BBQ shrimp is amazing.

I did not realize that it was "music bingo" night. It is a small seating area and we were only a few tables over from the performer. He handed out bingo cards, then proceeded to play Disney movie song clips. We had gone to the restaurant for a good dinner and conversation. This was so loud you could not talk. We finished up and left, no dessert.
