    Mud bugs! Looks like a hole in the wall. But food is fantastic.

    Crawfish is a tad expensive here. You'd expect it to be less expensive and better because it's what they specialize in. $7.99 for a pound of crawfish, plus 1.50 for corn and potatoes.

    "Raging Cajun" yeah right it's more like sedated Cajun. Crawfish weren't spicy at all.

    The BBQ Crab are seasonal and so worth it! Both for the price ($17.00) amount of food and deliciousness.

    The food was absolutely horrible! The crab cakes were the worst crab cakes I've ever had and the catfish was bad too. I went to this restaurant with high expectations and was throughly let down.

    Great mud bugs. A little over priced, but good quality food. When it's busy it can get a little crowded sitting at the communal picnic tables.

    Order the crawfish in a bucket. Portions are large. Come during season as its a bit pricy

    By far one of my favorite cajun restaurants... a lil on the pricey side but the food is excellent. Seating isn't the best, either.

    Crawfish tasted fantastic but I thought it was way over priced for the size of the bugs. Can't beat the taste locally though!

    They sell crawfish by half bucket (1.75lbs) or full bucket (3.5lbs). Pretty good sized mudbugs but needs more seasoning.

    They practice blast fishing, so you may taste the nitrate residuals that have been infused into the seafood.. Other than that.... A-1
