Foursquare Tips

  • Crawfish tacos were tasty!
  • If you LOVE spice I would recommend The Chicken & Shrimp Jambalaya w/ Extra Spice,It Was Awesome... Laters,Pete Taylor
  • Thursday nights they have free live music
  • Read the sign as, "HAND SHUCKED FRESH OYSTERS".
  • Fried cheese curds are the bomb. Straight out of Westby!
  • Red Beans and rice is tops!
  • Go there Saturdays from 9pm-Close for $2 Dixie Blackened Voodoo and $3 DBL colas.
  • I believe this place closed in spring/summer 2016
  • Vic is the most awesome waiter I've met in a while. He has amazing suggestions and he was right on target about those char-grilled oysters! He accommodated all of our big party group's needs. Props !
  • Chargrilled oysters are ridiculously yummy!
  • The gin fizzes are delicious but ridiculously sweet. Plan for a water or fried food chaser!
  • Johnny Chimes Plays every Thrusday 530-730 pm
  • They only have 1 bartender working on a Friday night. Very disappointing...
  • Adult Trivia is awesome
  • Never a cover when DJs are playing. Come any Friday or Saturday. Hell, come *every* Friday and Saturday!
  • Or, order some Fresh Hand, if you're in the mood.
  • Adult trivia is the best. Chris is a great trivia master and Tim makes good drinks.
  • the touffe is REAL heavy on the sauce. while not bad, it may put people off. if you're in doubt, you can't go wrong with the Creole instead.
  • Bartender Eugene always greets you with a smile and a beverage. Great food and service make this a neighborhood gem. Try the Fried Shrimp Po Boy.
  • Tried the nachos last night. STILL can't get them out of my mind! UNBELIEVABLE!
