    I arrived as asked for a Grey Goose Bloody Mary and the waitress kindly insisted in bring it with the house's vodka infused so I could taste the difference. Confirmed: the best Boody Marys in town!

    The French onion soup is awesome! Best I have had, ever. Also the sampler is a great choice if u want to try all the local faves. The jambalaya was the best!

    I lost my fried alligator virginity here. So yummy. The hurricanes are $12.50 but TRUST me it's well worth it. Did I mention the jambalaya was heaven sent? This place deserves an A+.

    Awesome! Fried green tomatoes so good! And ask for Jeremy. If you have a special diet need like me, he works on making good suggestions for what to have. Me? Redfish!

    Try the Stuffed Seafood Porkchops - Pork chop stuffed with shrimp, crabmeat and dirty rice, topped with bleu cheese. A salad with raspberry vinaigrette. Some delicious mushrooms.

    The building is old, close to three hundred years old. The waitstaff was awesome and the food pretty good. Ambience was noisy but outstanding none-the-less.

    Crab cakes are fantastic. Crispy on the outside, succulent and light on the inside, with just the right amount of spice.

    Gator worth the try. Table consensus says generous portions of bland, non-seasoned meat.

    Had our first dinner in NO here. Not really worth it. Good history/story but the food was sub par. Lacked in seasoning all around, fries were from a bag. They don't allow side substitutions.

    SERVICE IS TERRIBLE!! Our gumbo came out cold.. Not warm, cold. Like they forgot to heat it up. Server never came back to check on us. Waited over 30 minutes for a refill. Food is ok, nothing great.

    They have the BEST french onion soup I've ever had: crispy melted cheese on top and extremely hearty aroma of sakts& seasonings. Yum!
  • Alyssa L.
    No no no. Touristy place for sure. Had the jambalaya and some sort of bo boy. Was awful. And so was the service. Didn't taste fresh at all.
