The dinner started fine when we arrived. We were seated fast but had to wait 10 minutes to order drinks. This week is Queens Feast in Charlotte so we ordered all 3 courses. The gumbo was not terrible for the first course but could use seasoning.We werent given silverware and my mother asked for it and the waiter only gave her one set and then told us we would have to share. We had to ask a buss boy for a set that he didnt mind getting for us. I ordered ettouffee and it looked great but tasted the opposite. My mother ordered the Diane and did enjoy it. We did not even make it to the desert.
Not quite 5 stars, but close to it for the entrees only. My entree was the headliner, Blackened chicken of which I added their shrimp sauce added that had red bell peppers, spinach and mushrooms over mashed potatoes with broccoli. To absolutely die for!!! This made up for the appetizers. The fried Oysters were bland, sauce included. Tried adding salt still a no go. The Seafood Gumbo, bland and not worth it. Salt did not help it, so sad. The seating be prepared to be packed in like sardines depending on where you are placed. The first floor rear seating was not as bad as the front of the restaurant. Was delighted to be placed there. I did not go upstairs so not sure of the arrangement. All in all I would return for entrees only.
Great Restaurant!! My husband and I went for Queens Feast meal but also ended up getting drinks and a couple extra appetizers. The Fried Green Tomatoes are sooo good!!! Fried Oysters are fantastic!!! We ordered 3 Way Diane and Cajun Pasta, which were out of this world. Can't believe we have not gone there more often than we have. All in all, super great experience and our waiter, Sully, was the best. Took care of us for everything without wait. Dining experience was perfect and not too close to other patrons. Definitely recommend!!! PS...Food was so great that we took our son and grandson a take-out meal. They are enjoying it now and said it is perfect!!!
It wasn't what I thought it would be
Absolutely wonderful! The atmosphere with the live music and cozy seating was just like we were in the French quarter. Our drinks and service were perfect! And the food was to DIE for! I had the pan seared duck and my partner had the cajun pasta! Absolutely 100% going to return!
