Quality seafood. Came highly recommended by our grad. Stuffed shrimp was delicious. Gave rating of 4 due to small portion of oysters on po-boy. 6 small oysters on 6 inch roll just doesn't make sense. I pointed it out to the server. And manager said 6 was all I'd get.

Look, if you're gonna eat fried fish, it ought to be good. This was fabulous. We had whitefish, shrimp, oysters, crab balls and it all tasted like its fish of origin, not just breading. I also had a cup of the jambalaya and it was tasty.

We sat outside to take advantage of the view, but the flies and birds are a bit annoying and this was in December. Better to stay inside.

Service was top-notch. I have been in $$$$ places and not had such attentive service. Everyone was great. Will definitely return.

Tried to go Saturday night of Dickens but line was well put of the door so returned on Sunday night, it was rainy out n pretty quiet when we arrived a little before 8pm. Cajun shrimp with Cajun potatoes, garlic bread n traded slaw for hush puppies. Hubs had fried shrimp with hush puppies n fries. Also had boudin. Shrimp portions are tasty n generous. Cajun is spicy and yummy. Boudin was grilled n tasty served with crackers and hush puppies. Staff were friendly, it was slow on this rainy evening and staff seemed to get along well and were fun to chat with as well.

First time visit. Great location with view. The fish/shrimp platter was the best. Generous portions of each. The shrimp were large and had a little spice, but not too much. The gumbo was bland and tasted like vegetable soup, disappointed and would not order that again. Will visit again.

I'm 67 and when I surfed as a teen this location was a Burger Chef but you wouldn't know it now. The casual restaurant has been a long time favorite when my daughter lived on the island from 2000 until Hurricane Ike. The Cajun and fried seafood is about as tasty as it gets and the portions are overly generous. If you're hungry and want seafood, this is the place to go. There is interior and outdoor seating. The best time to sit outside is in spring and summer and watch the sunset. The staff are friendly and the prices are very reasonable.
