    Was underwhelmed by the burger. Tasty enough if you're in the area and craving one.

    The french toast was great. The andouille cheesy omelette was good. BYOT (tabasco)

    Start with some deviled eggs and a glass of good local draft beer. It's wise to come with friends so you can share the burger, okra étouffée (add crawfish) with a side of deep fried Brussels sprouts

    The menu looks like a good idea but everything was really really bland. The Bloody Mary was good but every other single thing... No herbs. No seasoning. No salt. No thanks.

    The menu items change from time to time but are ALWAYS fantastic. For example, my fave crawfish fettucine is gone, but now there's a crawfish mac & cheese in the sides section. I'm ok w/ that!

    The food is pretty decent, but the big plus is how child friendly it is (early in the evening) without being a child focused restaurant.

    Don't get the fettuccine & crawfish. Huge disappointment. Milky & bland. Banana bread pudding is great but sometimes u get whipped cream & sometimes u don't. Should b consistent. Still an improvement

    This is a very good bar mainly because it's devoid of pompous youngsters. In your 30s, married and if you have a kid, grab a spot, a beer and a turkey burger and chill.
