The food was delicious and the Migas was a perfect choice for brunch as was the Eggs Benedict with fried oysters. And we came for the live blues and the band did not disappoint. Great family meal.

Very friendly staff. Great food. The specials for the day were excellent - particularly the crawfish 1/2 and 1/2.

Best seafood in Houston. Kyle and Danton have a winner! Louis' wine selections (and attentive service) are perfect.
Danton's touches in the kitchen are true to Cajun traditional seafood touches, although menu well-balanced - - something for everyone and every taste.

Way over-priced for the standard of service and food that was delivered, and couldn't really tell if the ingredients were fresh or not as over-powered by spices... even after waitress said that nothing was spicy. Salad for starters was limp, with a ton of raw onion (guess this was preparing the mouth for the heat to come in the main course?).Creme brûlée had a crust thicker than the Winter Olympics skating rink! Only booked it to try something different, based on being over 4.5 on OpenTable. We will not be coming back. $200 for a 2 course mediocre meal for 2... no thanks!

I got there at 11am, 1st Sunday ( feb. 4 2018) of the month and was expecting the female lead singer to start singing as soon as the band started playing. However, she did not take the stage until 30- 40 mins. had elapsed.

Very disappointed as I scheduled my visit strictly to hear her sing starting at 11am.

You don’t have to go to New Orleans for good Cajun seafood. Try the gumbo.
