Jackie was our server and she was an absolute pleasure! The char-grilled oysters were SO GOOD we ordered more. The Jambalaya was wet which was we were searching for in New Orleans! Can't wait to return.

Waited 53 minutes while my whole party ate and still did relieve half dozen oysters on half shell or the dozen chagrined. Spoke to manager who said it could take 45mins as they were backed up reservations were made at 5pm and finished meal at 6pm with oysters. They did remove oysters from tab but nothing else other then a sorry excuse they couldn't shuck oysters fast enough. Will not be coming all with any clients in future and have removed from approved venues from company expenditures. Really disappointed in this establishment and lack of proper managment and customer service. Total bill was 115.98 and I could have spent this at many other places with better service.

The Shrimp Creole was good. The Taste of New Orleans was just okay. The Gator Bites were okay, but would prefer just Gator meat, not sausage. Did not appreciate a 20% tip automatically being added to our bill, as we were only a table of two. O would have tipped our server more than 20% but the restaurant decided his tip for us.

Walked into the bar area to dine, to find 4 out 5 tables dirty, and the 5th table the only one with patrons. They did clean a table for me, and sat down until room at the bar was available. The other tables remained dirty for at least 20 minutes. Just seemed like a poor visual for a new diner. Food was okay, I know there is better in the Quarter. Bartender was the only bright spot. Good service and pleasant personality.

3 out 5 people in my party ordered the gumbo and ALL 3 bowls were scorched and tasted like they scraped the bottom of the pot! When we asked for some kind compensation we were basically told NO because of a corporate policy we could not be compensated but they took the food back then no one wanted to order more food.. So the other 2 people in my party actually ordered a salad and a shrimp and catfish plate which was ok but not worth the price in my opinion. Then we got the checks and we were charged gratuity for a party of 5 when only 2 people actually ate and paid for anything. After speaking to the manager I was even more disappointed because he had no concern for the experience we received. We will NOT EVER go here again!!

Cody is an wonderful server with an excellent memory. He remembered us from several weeks ago. Food was delicious and drinks superb. Try the Big Easy and Rolling on the River cocktails. You won’t be disappointed. Crab cakes and stuffed mushroom appetizers are our favorites.

They couldn’t find our reservation. The host asked if we wanted inside, outside or bar. I said inside and a manager quickly ushered us into the bar and closed the door behind us. It was very awkward and no explanation was given as to why we were put in there. I don’t mind sitting at the bar, but it wasn’t handled correctly. The food was great and our server apologized for what happened and couldn’t understand it either.
