The BBQ oysters were delicious. Prices reasonable. I loved the gumbo! The greens hit the spot and bread pudding made you want to smack somebody momma !

We visited about 6pm on Sunday April 1 We ordered crab cake entree and po boy shrimp. The crab cake for 19.95 were 2 appetizer size in a tin foil (probably for microwaving) since they were barely edible The collard greens were watered down soup and the small bowl of rice and beans were unimpressive The corn bread was bad. Fortunately my spouse shared part of po boy which was just ok I wanted to love this place but could not We were never asked if we wanted dessert just came out and placed check on table. Server was friendly

I'm sorry about the miss when it came to your order. We take time in the preparation of our food, so we would have looked into the two appetizers and crab cake if you brought that up to us. I am glad to hear your spouse's shrimp po' boy did turn out alright. I appreciate the feedback and hope the rest of your NOLA trip went well.

All the best,
Curtis, Owner

We enjoyed good beer with bottled beer. Nice atmosphere --almost family type. Wife's phone fell out of purse onto floor. 1 -2 hours later, we realized she did not have it. Called it. Answered by staff. Yes, we have it. Obviously we went to get it. Staff was very professional and helpful, but also friendly.

This restaurant specializes in "soul" food which means they have a number of fried specials as well as other food. The service was excellent decorum basic. But the food was tasty and the two of us got out for under $50 which is unusual in a touristy part of town. There was nothing fancy just good basic food.

good local food, busy at times, great portions best for family style sharing. On frenchmen, near Hotel de la Monnaie, which is a great place to stay a while and eat your way around the french quarter to Esplanade Ave to the street cars.
