First time dining at this establishment, brought me back 30 years to when I served in the Navy along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Service was outstanding and attentive. Food was expertly prepared, and the price reflects the quality. A tad on the noisy side, but this is understandable given the size of the establishment and the number of guests dining there on a Friday night.

Another couple was seated, greeted, given drinks, and were almost done drinking them before I called our waiter over. My food tasted like it was sitting under a heat lamp for a while. My wife said her fish wasn't bad, but was dry and had no sauce with it. The meal was not worth the value, even with the LivingSocial deal. We had eaten at this restaurant 4 years earlier and had a bad experience then as well. We had hoped that they had improved since then. Unfortunately, they had not.

Wait staff was poor. Wrong meals were ordered. Dropped off by another staff. The new waitress told us she would correct it. 30 min later original waitress show up and gave same reply. Cancelled her meal. Looked at check, still had her meal and incorrect meal. She went to correct it and left the wrong meal again on it. Again. Really bad wait staff that doesn't seem to want to be there. Would never go back

Us and the couple seated next to us were not approached by staff for water, napkins, drinks or silverware for 20 minutes. Not even a hello. We finally flagged down a waitress from another part of the restaurant and found a bus person for napkins and silverware. If you’re understaffed just say so. A party of four sat down next to us and experienced the same treatment. Everyone’s food eventually arrived and it was nothing special. The saving grace of the whole experience was the server that we commandeered, a friendly and very capable woman named Jerryanna. Except for her, I would have a hard time recommending this restaurant. These are my first comments about a restaurant in years.

The cocktails were definitely not up to New Orleans standards, and the service was just OK. The charbroiled oysters were fantastic, and we are oyster snobs. The “gator bites” were just pieces of sausage and remoulade sauce. The wine menu is good, and we had a nice Sancerre. The entrees were nothing to write home about. My special lady picked this place, and, except for the oysters, she agrees it was a poor choice.

We drove 3 hours to have dinner here on a Saturday night. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 main course. We got my appetizer and my main course at the same time and first. 15 minutes later my wife received her 2 yep that’s it only 2 stuffed mushrooms so they where like $6 each and not worth $0.50. Then 10 minutes later she finally received her main dish after I was done eating and waiting. Never saw a manger. When he left our check I put my card in it and never saw him again. Took it to the manager and ask if he could take care of it he said no but your waiter can. Walked away 5 minutes the waiter came back after the manager keep looking around for him. Manager never said a word. $84 later and by far the worse meal I have ever had with open table in all our travels and reviews.

When we arrived 3 minutes early we were told we were way too early and we must wait, which is okay if we were not snarled at by the hostess in the meantime. Our food was sent back 3 times due to our steak being undercooked (asked for medium well, which should be easy since it should be on the cusp of being petrified). The redfish was mushy less than desired. I’ve lived here for over a year and have heard a few good things about this restaurant, I just did not have the same experience.

The service was poor, no apology was offered when we expressed concern. I hope the problems are temporary with staffing issues, but overall we were disappointed with the experience.

Tables were left dirty for 30 or more minutes the restroom had not been maintained at all and was very dirty. Our waitress said there were only 2 people in the kitchen. I know there is a covid recovery with staffing but this was extreme. After ordering we waited 90 minutes for dinner. Finally we just left.

Screwed up my cocktail order. Ordered the NO sampler, which was basically just rice and sauce with a couple pieces of protein in each. Liked the rice and beans the best. Waiter immediately brought the check without asking about dessert or coffee. We told him we wanted 2 desserts, and he came back and said the kitchen was closed - about 9:15. My husband's fish was reasonably good. Don't order the sampler, and get your dessert order in early. Waiter was definitely not invested.

Some people left because they didn’t get served after an hour of waiting at table. Very chaotic among all staff members. I probably will not go back unless things improve substantially.

At 7:15 we didnt even have water. Waiters were walking by constantly. We finally asked a waitress to help us. 20 minutes later we had water. We ordered everything right then fearing we would not see her for a while. She brought wine and an appetizer. It was ok. I needed more water, never came. I asked for a second glass of wine - it never came. We decided to have dessert elsewhere. For $110 bill, we left only $10 tip. This waitress should choose another profession. Never again. It looked like other servers were fine. There should be some oversight on the staff.

The so called server stopped by after 15 minutes to advise us it’s busy so we understood and kept very patient. We received our drinks 20 minutes later and ordered our meal. We sat for over 1 hour waiting while being neglected by the so called server. I realized the table next to me were eating their food and we hadn’t received our meal. They came in 30 minutes after us. I requested a manager but they were unoccupied. I decided at the point to tell me 3 guest we were leaving. The server came to me with an attitude and actually argued with me. He said I don’t care if you leave We did and will never go back. Also 2 other tables left because of poor service.

The first night, the food was so good, catfish with Jumbalaya. Service was pretty bad, actually really bad but the food was so good we decided to go back again. Hard to believe the service could be worse. It was so bad it was almost comical. Almost...Believe the reviews. The waitsatff and management don't give a hoot.

The slow cooked pork shoulder was definitely not slow cooked as it was super tough and the Cajun calamari was slightly under cooked. The shrimp creole however was great. The menu has two bread puddings and having one without raisins would be great.

Server wasn’t attentive at all and had to be reminded of asks. Weird to have the musician pan handle while I’m eating.

Then we got seated and it all went south. They couldn’t make a basic cocktail like a Rusty Nail because they were out of Drambuie (it was listed on the menu). My Sazarac came with no ice and no offer to get any if I’d like some. I ordered char grilled oysters. They were completely out of oysters Plan B ordered “Firecracker Shrimp” the waiter gave it to the person sitting across from me and called it “Voodoo Shrimp” when I tried to clarify that it was the correct “ Firecracker Shrimp” his response was “Yeah, whatever.” I ordered blackened redfish with a dill burre blanc sauce. It showed up with a butter emulsion instead. When I asked where the sauce was, he told me it was burre-blanc. I know the difference. He said he’d check. He came back to the table about 15 minutes after I finished the entree to tell me “well that’s how they’re making it now.” In all fairness, the blackened redfish unsauced was excellent. We waited almost a full half-hour to get our check. I then realized our waiter was waiting on almost half of a large dining room! They seemed grossly understaffed. Sorry New Orleans Creole Cookery , you blew it.

Staff was not the friendliest and everyone seemed annoyed to be there. Which i get being frustrated with tourists but you work at a tourist location, so that isn't our fault. Restaurant was clean and quaint.
