We tried other dishes too, but this steak was my favorite. It's a lie, they were all my favorite... but last meal on earth? I want this steak.
OMG!!! Wasn't expecting it to be so wonderful. So rich & flavorful! This is a must try for any newcomers 👍
Better than back home!!!
Being raised in Louisiana I know the quality Of food from Louisiana and this food is that quality. Service was AMAZING!!! I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for food recommendations. Definitely top quality food and drinks!!
We first had this dish in New Orleans and fell in love with it. It was always a special treat to return to Louisiana to have it. To learn that it was being served in San Diego was a awesome. We tried it and San Diego's version at Louisiana Purchase did not disappoint! Craving it since. We'll be back!
Awesome service... Amazing atmosphere inspite of the Election Day Parade!!
This is NOT commercial restaurant gumbo. It's ya mama's gumbo!!! And the leftovers ......BANGIN'!! Oh!!! And the collard greens! If you've ever had greens from Max's wine dive in Dallas .....they're running neck and neck. You have to get the greens with the gumbo. It's a must!
Mmmm so succulent and go. It just may better be, better than sex.
A must have dessert! Highly recommend trying ! We love this place. When they had happy hour my favorite dish was the crawfish Mac and cheese. Soooo goood !
OMG!!! The restaurant and food is wonderful. I enjoyed the atmosphere, ambiance and personable staff. I came back the next day to get the catfish. I will definitely make this place on my "go too" restaurant!
Grilled oysters were a great appetizer to start our meal. Very savory and tasty.
The wings were crispy , delicious , well seasoned and better than any other wing spot I've been to in San Diego. There is nothing like lemon pepper wet!
So delicious! Savory sweet and just the right almighty of cheesy, fan favorite for sure !
Had this with mac and cheese and greens and everything was pretty delicious. This was my first time going ever and I loved it. The catfish was so flavorful and I are on it for two days after my visit. I returned again for the seafood broil on Thursday's and had the crab legs and cheddar biscuits and everything was on point! The biscuits were were so buttery and soft and definitely worth the calorie splurge. I appreciate how seriously the staff is taking the Covid protocols with reminding you to keep your mask on while not seated, having partitions and great spacing between tables AND the restaurant being partially outdoors. It is a place I'd return for real soul food.
Sooo good. The perfect combination I never knew existed. Wings were cooked to perfection. Crawfish were the perfect toppers.
Gumbo was delicious
I absolutely loved this dish! Everything was cooked perfectly. The chicken was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Macaroni and cheese had just the right amount of seasonings and was very cheesey. I definitely recommend this meal you will not be disappointed.
A party in my mouth
First let me say... where did y'all find this fillet?! It's huuggeee!! Flaky!! It came out steaming hot, so pretty and crispy! Omg! I had the Mac and cheese (Lawd) Green(Good Gawt) and them biscuits ... them was not my mama bisquitssssss(in my Martin voice)! They was better than my mama biscuits and I'll tell her she just gone have to whoop me! Chef! Amazing! Everything ..Amazing! I wish I could upload this video I took of the hot sauce drip 💧 I did... now I'm tore back I gotta go lay down ...GOD BLESS YALL AND THANK YOU!! Love Cree!
Better than my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Unbelievable and even better than I expected 😁
Being from Louisiana & a great cook myself, I was greatly impressed & jealous!! It was so good 😁
This food item is soooo good that my taste buds didn't know how to act!!! I recommend this dish!!! You will not regret it!!!
OMG this was delicious! I've been craving catfish for months and this truly delivered. I had the Mac & cheese and red beans & rice.
These garlic cheddar biscuits were just an appetizer for an amazing main course: the king crab leg boil. We had the cheddar biscuits, king crab legs, and sausages. We polished it off with Maker's Mark boiler makers with a twist. We also sipped on the au jus from the crab boil. Man was this fantastic. To be honest I'm not even really a shell fish fan. This meal made me a true believer though. It knocked my socks off so hard that they flew all the way around the world and then hit me in the back!
The shrimp and grits were absolutely divine! Perfectly cooked shrimp, and the flavor and texture of the grits is just perfect. Hands down, best I've ever had outside of New Orleans!! Will be back to try more very soon :)
I also had the Hurricane! Everything was AMAZING! The owner/Cook is truly a blessing! Food was great! Atmosphere was also great! I'll most likely be back during the week for the specials!
I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SOMETHING SO GREAT UNTIL YOU GUYS! Coming from Louisiana it's hard to find places that are even close to the original taste of New Orleans cuisine, but you guys were completely on point with these oysters. One word, amazing.
Amazing dish!!!!!! I thank you guys for great customer service. My family and friends really enjoyed it. I will definitely be back.
OMG!!!!! Is all I kept saying with every bite I took. Then I was mad that I was just trying this place Saturday. My husband and I can't wait and look forward to going back. We also can't wait to share this place with our friends in town and any that come from out of town!!!!!
DELICIOUS! sauce was very creamy and noodles were cooked perfectly. Lobster was delightful as well. Great quantity and amazing quality. (not related to the dish but the "appetizer dish" was adorable!)
I tried the shrimp with grits .... So good, just like in New Orleans!!
Soul rolls are my favorite ,hands down
Flavor was delicious. The pop rocks can be a little aggressive but overall highly recommend and would order again.
It was out of this world...outstanding!
The shrimp and grits were cooked to perfection. it was so well seasoned made me believe I was in New Orleans
We ordered the dragos and the Shrimp Etoufe special, both dishes made my tastebuds want to cry from joy. The pasta in the Dragos was rich and just creamy enough to not overpower the lobster. The etoufe was delicious and had be eating my least favorite vegetable celery with no second thoughts. Defninately will be back
My friend loved it for her birthday. Big fan of Chloe.
