The fried crawfish and shrimp were very good. The catfish lacked a little seasoning but the restaurant gives you that authentic Louisiana tasting cuisine

Be sure to tell the waiter to go light on the dressing for the Greek salad! Excellent seafood—red fish and shrimp etoufee. Service a little spotty and restaurant can be very loud.
