We ate here because this restaurant was in walking distance of our hotel. The food was average and the waitress didn't seem to be very familiar with the items on the menu. A little disappointing.

My family patronized Chasin' Tails for my husband's birthday who is from New Orleans. Everyone loved the food especially my husband. The fried shrimp was delicious, and the seafood in-a-bag were very tasty. For dessert we ate beignets! Our entire family will definitely come back.

Staff is very friendly and attentive. Crawfish boil bags aren’t quite the Big Easy, but if you can’t get there, give this place a try. Weekday specials Monday to Wednesday. The Whole Dang Thang and the Crawfish Etouffee are my favorite. On street metered parking...More

If you love seafood and Louisiana cooking, this place is definitely for you. The food and service was fabulous! You receive nice large portions, and its definitely enough to share with another, but only if you really like them. The Jambalaya is amazing! Tastes of...More

The house sauce is so good. The food is messy but flavorful and worth the mess. They give you gloves and an apron for the mess. If you like New Orleans style seafood boils, you’ll love the extra saucy and spell your goodness and Chasin’...More

If you like seafood (especially fried) this is the place to go! Not a quiet spot (there are outside tables however) and they do close at 10:00PM, and a busy place so plan ahead. Full bar. We went with the calamari and fried shrimp with...More

We went on a Saturday around 6:00 p.m. and it was pretty packed. There were six in our party with no reservations and they promptly found us a table. The atmosphere was nice. It was noisy, but that added to the experience I think. This...More

Great atmoshphere. Seafood of all types. They even have Gator! The crawfish mac and cheese was superb. Good drinks. You get a bib. Outdoor seating is available. They have a separate room for parties. Definitely recommend.

This was our second visit here. On a late Saturday afternoon, the service was excellent. My wife had the fried scallops and I had the fried calamari and the jambalaya. The fried food was perfect. Don't bother with the jambalaya. Parking can be a pain.

It's a new place that has just opened. I just got back from dinner and wanted to rave about what a great addition it is to our county.
