    The wife got the shrimp po'boy and she really liked it. Plenty of shrimp and the bread was soft and fresh. She would eat this again.

    Place is by Jackson Square so it's a tourist meal stop. U won't get fab food here, but its not bad. Service was good and friendly. I had a pretty good burger and my hubby had a good fried fish dish.
  • David H.
    Breakfast is good, just know everything is eggs . the beignet strips are very good, and lots of them for the price!

    Great value- huge portions at prices considerably lower than comparable restaurants- friendly staff, good drinks, food came out quick, & they take plastic

    Great off bourbon food. The muffuletta is amazing, get one. Can't go wrong with the $1 house wine. Nothing special but it's cheap!

    Not sure where the negative comments come from. Veggie muffuletta was quite good and prices were very reasonable for a sit-down restaurant. Decent. Staff was very friendly

    Awesome place, recommended by locals. Great taste/value for the money. Try the oyster po boy, seafood plate, red beans and rice. :)

    The seafood plate dishes are amazing. The beans and rice with the fried fish is great for an authentic experience of NOLA

    Muffuletta is delicious but they have daiquiris on the menu but don't sell them anymore. Which isn't horrible except try try to upsell their expensive sangrias.

    Mufaletta (?) is great but be hungry. Also tried the Jambalaya. Good but not better than other places. Try something else first for adventure.

    Stay away from Strawberry Daiquiris unless u like coconut! They use coconut rum so it's not really strawberry but it is defiantly coconut! Yuck!

    It was a muffa-effin-lotta crap. This place is a tourist trap. The jumbalaya was rice with tomato sauce on it and the "house salad" was brown iceberg lettuce with cheese and two cherry tomatoes.

    Grear cajun jambalaya! Try it, you won't regret it.

    Chris S.March 11, 2014
    The jambalaya was very mediocre - not remarkable in any way. The catfish sandwich is like a big Filet-o-fish and the fries are totally frozen. I expected a bit more from this place.

    This place is gawd awful. Food was bland & cold. Fish tasted like it was frozen, & sausage tasted odd. Not even the cheap scotch got rid of the gross taste in my mouth. As a tourist I expected better.

    Meh! Nothing special. Good in a pinch. But if you don't want to "waste a meal" while in New Orleans and on a culinary adventure then don't stop here.

    This place blows! Daiquiri was actually good but food was awful. Jambalaya & breading had no flavor. Everything is fried or overloaded w/swiss cheese. Save your money & eat your own sock.

    Avoid the "thinly" sliced roast beef. It's really just thick slabs of meat with salty gravy on a store bought bun. The drinks are cheap though.
