    Seafood Mac and Cheese was "crunchy" as if it was still frozen. Very surprised that we had two orders of it and they were both over cooked. The crab cakes were great! I'm sure it was a bad night for the seafood Mac, the rest of our food and drinks were good.

    Had a 6:15 reservation. Had drinks and an appetizer and it was great for the 4 of us. The bartender knew exact ally how to make drinks. The food was great and ample portions. It was a "little" pricey. The bill with tip was over $350.00, but no complaints. By the way, service was excellent. We will be back.

    Really enjoyed the experience. The food was so slow coming out it gave us plenty of time to visit with family. The floor manager was nice enough to point out the very large birthday groups that arrived at the same time. We were already aware of those groups. We will be back. After Church we’re not in a big hurry. All good.

    Wasn’t impressed by any part of the dining experience. No mention of the special occasion was made even though I had made a note. Server was nice enough but a ghost throughout the experience. The ‘specials prefixe’ insert was a week out of date which struck me as strange (why wouldn’t they just reprint the same menu with current date so it doesn’t look like no one bothered). The nola bbq shrimp app was very delicious. Super saucy; needed a spoon but wasn’t served with one. Mint daiquiri was good too. All in all, great service can save a mediocre meal, but it’s hard for mediocre service to salvage a good meal. Won’t be going back.
