    The reviews here scared me, but the place has air-conditioning and I got water pretty quick after I sat down. Waitress actually knew how to pour a coke back. So, were gonna try the cheese sticks.

    Ordered a quick waffle with blueberries - sorry, we are out of blueberries. Ok - peanut butter. Brought out one waffle and then said - sorry we are out of peanut butter. How are you out of PB???

    Got seated, no one came to check on us. Waited 10 min for service, 10 min for drinks, decided to leave after that. Guy ordered Gumbo and he had arrived after us and still had his food before my drinks

    If you're looking for spice, this is not your place, unless you use a lot of tobasco. The red beans and rice were very dull.

    Lots of TV's, good for watching football if you can get a seat at the bar.

    The service is terrible and you won't be noticed unless you are in a huge group of people. Don't go to this restaurant!

    Unless you're staying at the Holiday Inn French Quarter or need horrible service, I would choose ANY place but this place. It's bad. "Bad meaning Bad, not Bad meaning Good!"

    WORST PLACE EVER. Food arrived almost 1hr after we ordered and was cold. Terrible service--rude and slow. Go 2 blocks up to Mr B's Bistro instead!

    Come here if you like your waitress to talk on her phone in the bathroom instead of bring you water!
