    The food here is excellent. The service here is so completely rediculous that it actually makes me want to say I would never be back. Shaking my head in disbelief. And ps, the bill was very reasonable

    Wow. The special was pork and mine came out raw and cold. Other food was less than pleasing. Pass on this place.

    Best seafood I had in NOLA! Charbroiled oysters, alligator, blackened red fish and pecan pie with Tabasco pecans were all delicious. Everything has great flavor and the waitstaff was very friendly.

    Frozen bourbon milk punch was legit, but service wasn't up to par. Gumbo was bleh, but the seafood gratin was good and the fried shrimp was pretty darn good.

    Stephanie Lewis · May 25, 2014

    A bit underwhelmed, but ordered pretty common meals--fried oyster and catfish. Tasted very fresh, but most are in NOLA. Service a bit confusing (3 diff waiters), but overall really good.

    Seafoof Gumbo was the best I had on the whole trip. Stuffed crab is sensational. Paneed Veal to die for. Chocolate bread pudding served with bourbon sauce is beyond description. I'll be back!

    Go for happy hour to get $1 oysters. Sit at the bar and watch Rickey shuck 'em faster than you can eat 'em. Also my favorite shrimp remoulade in town.

    Colleen Newvine Tebeau · April 12, 2011

    Get the BBQ Shrimp. Save your server a trip by asking for extra bread up front - you'll want it to sop up the extra sauce.

    Waiting was too long, average service, food is flat, and expensive. Not worth it.
