First time eating here although we've passed it many times on our way to Baton Rouge. The food was excellent. We had the seafood dip appetizer which was delicious. Service was good but a little slow at times; however, it was busy when we went. We'll definitely be back!

We stopped here on the way home from Lafayette. It was absolutely delicious! Loved the boudin balls appetizer and my chicken fried steak was awesome. I also had a Bloody Mary and it was good. Waitress was very nice and our food came out quickly. I will be back next time we are in the area!!! :) ... read more

Our favorite place to eat on our way to Baton Rouge or on our way back! We usually save our appetite so we can eat here! Our favorites are the fried alligator appetizer, or the fried green tomatoes appetizer, the corn & shrimp soup so very yummy, and of course the homemade rolls!!

Tried this place last night (1/11/17) and I loved it! The Angus Steak Po'Boy was my first ever Po'Boy, and I have to say, AMAZING! My wife ordered the 24oz Ribeye, and it was so juicy and well seasoned! Will definitely be going back!!!

As we left Baton Rouge for Houston, we were diverted to US190 to continue our journey home (which took 13 hours due to a major wreck on I10).

We stopped here on the recommendation of a family member. Food was delicious. Definitely good Cajun eating. Portions were huge but unfortunately we were on our way to the airport and couldn't take any with us. I had the catfish in a crawfish etouffee sauce.

This place has a ton of character. You must look around and the signs and rustic items around. The bar is pretty cool looking. There is a lot to choose from on the menu. The Crawfish Balls with the Homemade Pepper Jelly was tasty. The Catfish Sarah was amazing could not finish it was a very large portion. Have to come back again to s ... read more

The wait staff needs some coaching but the food is really good. We started out with stuffed shrimp for an appetizer then had hamburger steak for dinner. It was delicious! I've eaten hamburger steak at lots of places but this was one of the best.
