The food was fantastic. Had the gator tots and they had great flavor and I would highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms they where amazing. Super fun atmosphere and only a hop skip and a jump from galena! Well worth the drive!

Great evening to sit outside. Cajun and American options. Try the seafood gumbo. It was really good. All of the staff were friendly. Service was good. Nice stop on the way back from the vineyard.

Stopped in for a quick dinner, we were greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and we were able order our food right away. The Gumbo was excellent along with the etouffee.
