    If you stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott, the Café will give you a complimentary cup of soup (or maybe it was a discount on the meal) either way, nice perk and friendly staff and delicious food.

    Food was good, service was better. The bartenders were excellent. I went with the half Etouffee and half crawfish tails. And the mushroom soup. And bread pudding. All good.

    OMG with their version of andouille sausage. Great as an appetizer or full meal, this is a great Cajun twist of old French, German, and Italian sausage making. The extra kick sets this version apart

    Terrible experience. The rice w/meal was dried out and inedible. Etouffee just meh. The atmosphere was dominated by a group of screeching women who were further encouraged by the staff.
