I had the seafood gumbo - I couldn't taste crab at all, and the shrimp were overcooked and hard. I like my own seafood gumbo better, however my friend never had any before and really enjoyed it.

I grew up in Mobile, AL and this seafood is the freshest and most authentic I’ve been able to get outside of my hometown. Gumbo is fresh and full of seafood. Shrimp is perfectly seasoned and cooked. One of our favorite places! Tastes like home!

The slaw was terrible, the shrimp poor boy was great. The glass of wine at $12 was way over priced. The service was average. I had to get up to ask were my beer was.

It wasn't as spicy (spices, not heat) as we are accustomed to. Additionally, the decor was just too 'clean' to give that real Louisiana feeling. Needs some grit. And no crawfish on the menu. Hmmm?

Our waiter was great and the food was delish. Fav dish of the night for everyone including our 9 year old was the alligator bites. If you’re considering a drink, go with the “purple drank” .. you can’t go wrong. Great experience, will be back for sure!

Gumbo was good and I’m from the coast so I am more high maintenance about my gumbo. It had great flavor and plenty of shrimp in it. Didn’t see any other seafood in it. Will definitely go back!

My server was really great didn’t catch his name but I tipped him $25 on a $72 ticket. I had the fried okra which was delicious, we had a shrimp basket and the gumbo flight and 2 purple Frank’s all was excellent choices. Hit the spot on this cooler day of 42* and drizzling outside.
