And they were so accommodating and nice. I tried the gator bites they were pretty good, it was like chicken with a hint of fish. My chicken salad had excellently fried chicken strips. The waitress refilled our drinks before they were even halfway. But the...More

Don't look for haute cuisine here, this is a brown-paper tablecloth, wet wipes included spot. This casual seafood restaurant keeps it simple when it comes to the menu but they don't skimp on flavor. The Louisiana influence is in every bite and you can't go...More

After a long day walking at the Musume of National History we needed a place to eat after getting back to the hotel. Found this place about a block to the left of the hotel. Great seafood and wonderful friendly staff.

My husband and I love this place and come back time and time again. Our go-to is that we each order 1 lb of shrimp--we find this to be the best value for the money in terms of quantity and quality. I've ordered the snow...More

Our waitress Tina disappeared often. Whenever we needed anything, we had to get other servers help. We did not receive the sausage we ordered in our bag of crawfish. We could not find her until near the end of our meal when we got another...More
