Diner Reviews
  • "Have not had a menu item that hasn't been anything but fantastic! Service was awesome and very friendly. Management takes a very active interest in the dining experience. The music is great (& not too loud). Great place. We will be back!"

  • "I only say this because i've low income as a student/musician. Double negative in terms of financial security. Myself and my fiancé started with beer and wine, followed by an appetizer of the seafood jambalaya (starter size) and the beer battered shrimp. The shrimp were the best i've ever had in a restaurant, huge and juicy with the batter perfectly formed and crisp. We will both be starting with these next time! The soup was just as good, although I wished I had gotten the larger size at first - until I tried to fit the main course in. I had the fried chicken breast, and she had the ribs. Both were life-altering. I am a critical dick when it comes to food but I couldn't find anything wrong either. Fall of the bone ribs, and juicy chicken."

  • "Four of us gathered to celebrate a Birthday. The staff was very friendly and patient, attentive but not intrusive. The food was very good. We ordered crab cakes, ribs and jambalya. We spent several hours chatting and visiting and never felt like they were wanting us to leave. the music was great, it was the first thing one diner noticed. Not only was the food southern so was the music. I had dined here before but the others hadn't. I think we will all return either together or separately ."

  • "Restaurant was super accommodating and flexible with seating, numbers, reservations. Allowed us to bring in our own cake. The food was fantastic, nothing returned, no mix-ups, came out rather quickly. Above all though, it was the service that was extremely exceptional. Can't wait to go back... they have got me as a customer for life :). Plus, it helps, anyone I know who has ever dined here has never had a single bad thing to say."

  • "We had a table for 4 and the tables was crowded just with small plates and glasses. We had to move stuff off just for the appetizer. Time to get bigger tables. The dining room wasn't full so they could afford to get rid of a few small tables to put in proper sized tables. Our table was only really good enough for 2. My son said the bathrooms were scuzzy and outdated. He decided to wait until he got back home. We treat my son and his girlfriend since we had not seen then for a long time. Wouldn't go there again. It was supposedly on the "You gotta Eat Here list" but the restaurant area let us down, food was ok!"

  • "Went to celebrate my son's 20th Birthday and our Daughter's college graduation. We enjoy southern food and this restaurant could accomodate a party of 9. My daughter found a worm in her glass of water, not good as she is very squeamish about bugs and creepy crawlies! The food was very mediocre, nothing special and very expensive. I am sorry to say we will not be back."

  • "We went here for my husband's birthday -- first time back in many years as we moved to the deep south side -- the food was amazing (we had the Southern Fried Chicken and the Satisfaction Plate) but I was most impressed with the service. My 9 year old son was with us -- he is a notoriously choosy eater -- but the staff were so accommodating in helping us find something he would enjoy -- he wolfed down his chicken po'boy and declared that he could not wait to come back! Will be back soon."

  • "As we walked into the restaurant the first thing that hit us was the music it was most appropriate for the type of restaurant. The decor was great. My wife and I were seated right away by very friendly staff. The menu choices were great and such that there were several things we wanted to try. This time my wife had a shrimp appetizer and the Southern Fried Chicken and I had a swamp stick an alligator kebab and the Steamboat Jambalaya. My wife enjoyed her meal very much. I loved the alligator app and the jambalaya. Our server was friendly and efficient. Needless to say we are wondering why we waited so long to dine here. It will not be our last visit our next visit is in planning. There was a good drinks list."

  • "Well my time at this establishment was great, very few people at 4:30-5 started to pick up later. The food was excellent really enjoyed the hush puppies and the boudin. Service was good not over the top but friendly so that was a bonus. If you're on the fence to try this place come on down and eat here!"

  • "We went for a birthday dinner. The food and service was great. Friend staff and the owner made a point to say hello before we left. We had apps, entrees, deserve and a few drinks; and it was all fantastic. I highly recommend the Sweet Southern Tea, Spicy Mussels, Cherry Cola Ribs and the Fried Chicken. Wow! I have been around Louisiana and love it, and I have been a huge blues fan since a child so I am thrilled to have found this gem."

  • "I have now eaten there twice and the food and service has been excellent both times. The first time I had the Catfish and the second time I had the Crab Cakes. They were both amazing. The mussels are also amazing and so was the Cheesecake for desert :) "

  • "Food was fantastic. Cocktails were delicious. Server was sweet and able to joke at ease with me, she even thought I tipped her too much at the end of the night! Will definitely be going back."

  • "I went with my husband and a couple of friends - they were accommodating for us despite being a bit late for the reservation, which was a plus. The appetizers we had - alligator and scallops - were amazing. However, it took an hour for us to get our entrees after the appetizers, and we were starving. My entree was a seafood linguine, which tasted good, but was totally ruined by the fact it was absolutely soaking in greasy oil. It was so heavy and so oily, I had much higher expectations for the food. Especially since it was featured in 'you gotta eat here'. That being said, it seemed like everyone else enjoyed their entrees, so maybe it just isn't the place to go for pasta. Regardless, $25 for greasy pasta is something easily given up."

  • "So glad there were new items on the menu. This always makes things very interesting. I choose the southern fried chicken as well as my two other friends and it was absolutely delicious. My husband and mother picked the pasta with shrimp, clams and mussels and totally enjoyed it as well. The food here has always being great and I was excited for the chicken. I will definitely try some of the other new items next time we go there. We shared the bread pudding and it was delicious. It is one of our favorites there but will try some of the new ones next time. Great food. Our waitress was very attentive as well."

  • "We came here for Mother's Day dinner and had a party of seven. The food came out quick and was fantastic! The complaints I have are that our waitress never gave us a kids menu so my daughter had some of my ribs and fries which is fine but we noticed after that the table behind us was being served a kids menu (we didn`t notice this until we were finished our meals). The other complaint is that the serving of ribs you get for the price is rather small. My husband easily would have had another and even said he was still hungry. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I will say the ribs are absolutely amazing. "

  • "Went for dinner with friends (party of 4) We were seated immediately (did have a reservation). Serivce was friendly and prompt. Appetizers were very good (recommend the mussels-very large serving, and delicious). All the mains were very good-I would definately reciommend the Pasta La Rocca-linguini with seafood and proscuitto. Serving was HUGE (would easily feed 2 people IMHO). A bit noisy, but the place was packed, so was to be expected. Would definately return. "

  • "My girlfriend and her mother are celiac, and they were still able to choose from roughly half the menu, including the delicious blackened catfish. All of our dishes were nothing short of amazing, and we all cleaned our plates. This was our second trip and we already have plans to bring our friends next time because we know they'll love it too."
