    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.

    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.
