I had a great time! The food was great and brought to us quickly, and we had a very fun server for the night. I've been there before this outing, but every meal there is worth it!

My husband and I were excited to try this restaurant because we had heard great reviews. However, we were very disappointed. We arrived early afternoon with reservations only to have to wait for the staff to clear tables and seat us. I ordered an alcoholic beverage only to be told they were out. The appetizer of boudin balls was mediocre and dry. I ordered the Mamou Chicken, which was recommended by the waitress, only to be disappointed once again. The chicken was dry and leathery and arrived luke warm. My husband’s BBQ plate arrived the same. We had planned on ordering a dessert, but after our disappointment with the appetizer and entrees, we decided to skip it. The staff apologized several times informing us they had a busy day and that they were short staffed, however, this doesn’t negate the fact that the food was disappointing.

Appetizers (meatballs and fried okra) were very filling, so four of us split entrees (tuna salad and sliders) for a delicious, satisfying meal. The smoked old fashioned was very good, and the service was perfectly attentive. thanks.

I absolutely love BBQ and was so excited about our brunch plans.
We made reservations online the night before only to arrive and be told our reservation is for outside. When placing the reservation, there isn’t an option for this. I was told the website assigns a table. Please fix this!
The host handled this well and was very polite but we ended up waiting almost
an hour.

Went yesterday for the first time for my birthday lunch and it was great. We all shared the seafood avocado salad (huge and pretty good, but could have used more seafood and avocado), the smoked turkey and fig sandwich (excellent), pulled pork "sammich" and onion rings (pretty good), lump crab empanadas (decent), bbq brisket meatballs (wow!), and the fried okra (maybe the best I've ever had). Overall a fantastic meal and we will definitely be back! (be sure to ask before you get the birthday cake)

Thank you for the feedback. The carrot cake should be complimentary for birthdays'. On the receipt it shows negative sign next to the carrot cake. It may look like it was charged but it should be complimentary. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience. We appreciate your support! If you were charged we will get your next slice.

Checked in for my reservation and went outside to wait and I received an email saying thank you for visiting when we didn’t even sit down to eat. So my husband went to the back patio to see if they could fit us in since inside canceled our reservation. Food was decent server was very nice. Really wanted to sit inside with our reservation with a newborn but for some reason the hostess canceled our seats.

Generally a great lunch and dinner place specializing in barbeque. But brunches are great also with a unique combination of eggs Benedict with pulled pork. Highly recommend this place for either option.
