    Boxing Room just got full liquor, which means lots of New Orleans-inspired cocktails from Jonny Raglin, including a milk punch, frozen daiquiri, Pimm's cup, and gin fizz. Read more

    Fried alligator is way more fried than alligator. The flounder, however, was excellent.

    Convenient spot in Hayes Valley to explore southern cuisine (alligator, etc). The menu is somewhat small and focused on meat dishes.

    The fried green tomatoes with shrimp were tasty. The boudin balls were heavy on the rice, but pretty authentic. My frozen daiquiri brought me home. (I grew up Cajun. I give this place a thumbs up.)

    Great place to have a quick lunch. The Po' Boys are excellent. The dishes are well prepared and freshly made. Friendly staff. Good vibe. Don't forget to finish it off with a Bloody Mary Oyster shot.

    Nice setting and attentive staff. I had the brown rice #jambalaya and #duck confiet. They did a descent job with the jambalaya but the duck had obviously been sitting a while. Meh!
