Foursquare Tips

  • Fried Oyster Po boy is legit!
  • Po' boys!
  • This place rules! Live blues!!!
  • I'd imagine this place would be hopping before a Sharks game?
  • BBQ shrimp bowl if you like spicy and delicious.
  • Cajun fries are just the right amount of spicy and are deliciously addicting.
  • Abita on tap!
  • Don't get the gumbo, jambalaya, or red beans and rice. Flavourless! Stick to the po' boys. The bread pudding is amazing. Beignets are swell too.
  • Order the red beans and rice and a Turbodog!
  • Cajun fries are on point!
  • Do all of these things in one visit here: crawfish pasta, sausage bread, an Abita Turbo Dog beer, and listen to the live blues band play.
  • Get the sweet potato fries.
  • Drippin's and sweet potato fries.
  • Favorite place for lunch in SJ.
  • Try the muffaletta and sweet potao fries. Good beignets too!
  • Excellent food! Try the red beans and rice! Cajun fries are out of this world!
  • If you can't watch the game from the Shark Tank, watch it here.
  • Good food, terrible coffee.
  • BBQ shrimp in the PhB specialities section is very very good. And don't leave without having their Bread pudding; it's super delicious.
