    The food was very good until we found a hair in it. When we went to pay the bill, we did not give the tip 15% for these reasons and she came to charge us the full amount.

    The filet mignon was great. The cocktails are also very powerful. You only need one! And like others have said- leave room for the bread pudding!

    Be there at 8.30pm for the It's a Wonderful World sing-along. Great feeling to sing with a group of strangers. Everyone gets the words.

    Ignore the few bad reviews. This is as good a Cajun place as you'll find outside of Louisiana. The food and drink are near perfect, and the atmosphere is warm and fun. +magician Mark Collier on Fri.

    Try the Stuffed Filet Mignon - Get it blackened. Best dish on the menu ... My go to. You can get a topping of artichoke hearts but I keep it dry. So good.

    service is excellent and food served fast. This place is packed but we were on the top 2 waiting list and was told to come back at 630 (they opened at 530) and we got seated exact 630.

    Cheryl is the best waitress in America. Bring a date, ask for her, and take her recommendations. If it's busy, put your name in and pop over to Joe's for a drink before.

    Seriously solid Cajun food. The Gumbo isn't diluted & has a nice thick roux. The Red Beans+Rice got flavor. You get a LOT of Crawfish in the Etoufee (& it's good). This is a NICE surprise.. Holy CRAP

    Not bad, not great. Nothing was really bad, but nothing really jumped out at me (including chocolate soufflé). I wouldn't be so critical if there weren't so many other better options so close.

    Make sure to go on a Friday or Saturday night and talk to the magician. Not only are his acts amazing, he's hilarious to talk to as well.

    I preferred this place years ago before they started the singing nonsense in the evenings. Now I'll just go for lunch if I know what's good for me!
