    The short ribs hash was tasty. Slightly spicy but done well. Be careful whn ordering the shrimp and grits....check for doneness on those grits. Ginger beer was good as well.

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

    Bin YangJune 21, 2015
    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!

    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
