    The whitefish dip is amazing! You won't find a better happy hour with their $3.50 drafts and half off appetizers.

    The voodoo shrimp is yummy, not too spicy. Great sides- the dirty rice, red beans and rice are so good. Shrimp pasta dish is huge you'll definitely have to take it home.

    The Pasta Orleans is incredible. They should make it a side available with every meal. The Bleu Cheese Steak special is also incredible. I wish they had it more often.

    The blackened catfish is excellent and not overly greasy like its fried counterpart. The buttered lima beans are an excellent side! Dirty rice was a bit blah. Service was friendly but can be slow.
