It's not fancy but I brought my mom there for Mother's Day. The frog legs are a fun surprise visually and quite tasty!

The food was amazing, the service outstanding, and I am sure we will be repeat (again and again) customers. Excited to try different things however will be hard because the red beans and rice were excellent so I want to order over and over again!

Absolutely love their authentic Cajun food! We've been eating here for years, and are never disappointed. Steven and his staff are always very friendly, and the live music on weekends is great!
