    Creole combo was tasty. Shrimp creole was served cold, but the rest were served warm to hot! Gumbo was quite delicious!

    Good food, terrible service. They add gratuity to your bill automatically and then my waiter tried to hustle me to leave without getting my change. I know the game!

    Erin Moore · May 18, 2012
  • Robert R.

    Don't worry about trying the bbq shrimp its better elsewhere. Shrimp and oyster platter anf shrimp dinner are worth the money.

    Stay away from "salads" but the Boudin Balls are interesting.

    Pretty much the worst dining experience I've ever had. Would not recommend at all.

    When I complained to the man who CLAIMED to be the mgr and asked about southern hospitality he replied "there's a difference btw southern hospitality & a ignorant black"!!!
