The food was good but a little expensive. For the price, I would rather eat at Fisherman's Wharf. Small so usually crowded, and restrooms only accommodate one person at a time with no place to wait so it's a little awkward having to dash from your table when (and if) you see it become available.

Immediate seating at 630. Margaritas were very good. Oysters were ok; had one that turned to mush when removing from shell. Definitely would not eat that one, but when shown to waiter he neither apologized nor offered to replace it. He just said he would not eat it either. That is not acceptable. On the other hand, my crab cakes were good, not exceptional. My wife ordered the Seafood Mix. It contained oysters, which were not mentioned on the menu as being part of the mix. The waiter said they were always part of the dish. She does not like oysters. I will give them one more chance before I take them off my places to eat.

Not a great experience this time around, it did look packed but right when we walked in, an employee said "There's an hour wait" Abd walked away. I figured since they didn't bother to take my name, we weren't going to be looking at great service. Went on to somewhere else. 12/30/18. 7-ish pm.

Portions we large but dishes were mediocre with exception of Boudin balls and catfish strips. We ordered two appetizers, two entrees and 2 sodas - cost with tip was $80. Skip and opt for a different lunch location.

Had no expectations! Everything was good! Nothing explosively phenomenal! The portions are HUGE! The service is OUTSTANDING! Ambiance is down home, local! Not bad! Reasonably priced!
