We had reservations and table Was ready when we arrived. Majority of guests reported great tasting food. We had shrimp Diane pasta and it was delicious. The fried green tomatoe appetizer could have been better. The tomatoes were not Cooked and hard. Everything else was great.

The food was good was appropriately priced. The music was good and was not too loud. The addition of a bass and percussion instruments would have helped. I prefer modern dance Cajun music. But even if you stuck to the traditional Cajun music a triangle would have been helpful.

Few things I noticed....the "decor" has been changed for the better. There is space now...more open and comfortable. The menue has been reduced. Kind of disappointed in that...although the choices on the new menue were fine. The quality of the food was very good as were the sizes of the servings. If you walk away hungry I would be amazed. We went on a Thursday evening and I would recommend making reservations since it was quite crowded. The service was excellent and the wait from ordering until served was very good. Couldn't have been more than 10 minutes. Everyone in our group was very pleased with the meal. Glad I didn't shy way after the ownership changed hands.

Got the Nacheaux’s and Seafood Gumbo this time and I was amazed! I always get the gumbo so I know it’s always good but the nacheauxs really hit a home run! Brennan was a very attentive server! He was friendly and knew the menu well.

Was out of a certain whiskey for one of the posted drinks, ran out of crawfish for the fried crawfish salad, ran out of the olives and green beans for the bloody Mary and pineapple for the special of the night. Also our waiter was extremely slow. Had to request refills for drinks and he would disappear. Was seated at 7 and didn't leave until 9:30. It took him over 10 minutes just to bring back our credit cards.

I believe we found the best. The dishes we had were delicious and the service excellent. Highly recommended.

The food was far to Spicey hot to the point of discomfort. No one in our party was able to eat it. The server didn’t even take note of how much food was left on plates. That should have been a clue that something was wrong.
