Excellent experience with quality food at good prices. Grilled shrimp Alfredo was cooked to perfection. Host and server were very inviting and friendly. Restaurant decor is elegant enough for a nice date or a get together. Definitely recommend that you give this place a try. If all food is this quality they should thrive for years to come.

This was our first time dining here. The atmosphere and staff were amazing! Our waitress was so sweet and had a smile at every table she addressed. Loved the fact that the owners walked around to every table and spoke with each guest. Food was delicious! We ordered the crawfish nachos as our appetizer, fried ribs with mash potatoes and smothered cabbage, and the combo fried shrimp and fish with fries. The owner took the ribs meal off our ticket because he felt the wait was longer than it should have been but we told him he didn't need to because it was well worth the wait. We will definitely return and tell all our friends and family about this place.
