    We had the Pork Chops (tons of food), steak kebabs and 1/2 order of peel and eat shrimp - all were fabulous!!! Place had an awesome atmosphere and with the amount of food you get the prices are good!

    Everything is outstanding here. There isn't one bad thing I've had. The ribeye is probably the best steak I've ever put in my mouth. Fish ponchatrain, salmon dish and jambalaya are my favorites

    Midge is an artist supreme! She routinely creates masterpieces including the best damn Bloody Mary I remember having! Eat at the bar!

    The jambalaya is awesome! But beware: the "whole" order is a lot of food! I'd recommend the half (unless you want to take a lot home with you!).

    I really like this place and have been a loyal customer since they first opened. But I have recently noticed that the restaurant is usually so busy that the service can't keep up.

    I've tried several different dishes and loved them all! Not for those who don't like spices, but there are tons of options. Wait staff is also great, especially Hope.

    Place was crowded, but upstairs bar had plenty of space. Creole Chicken AuGratin was amazing, and enough for sharing or for days of left-overs!

    The catfish liberty is really good. I eat on it for 3 days. I also love the black eyed peas, jalapeño corn and gator.
