We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner, starting with a selection of oysters. I had the menu favorite shrimp and grits. Grits were a little loose, but shrimp and sauce were very tasty. My date had the fried chicken, and as a native Texan, it meet with his approval, as did the collard greens. A busy night but they managed it well. We've been there when it wasn't such a busy night and our experience was slightly better, as you might expect. If you like New Orleans food, this will provide you with a comparable experience.

The first thing that came to my attention is the atmosphere. Came here for brunch and had a great time. The second thing was the service. The server was polite, inviting, helpful, and even the owner or manager swung by to see how we were doing. Lastly, the food was delicious. The biscuits were so perfectly done, I wish we could have ordered a dozen to go. GooglePlace - January 2018

The look and feel is nostalgia at its best. Food and service casual but prompt and friendly. The Meyer Lemon Ice Box Cake was a fitting end to the Fried Chicken Dinner. Oysters were fresh and cold the way they should be. Grits and Collard Greens top notch. No Fifth Star:Being Picky cause one piece of the Fried Chicken was slightly Dry. I plan to go back many times. BTW the other Two Pieces were perfect.👌 GooglePlace - December 2017

We had a 7:45pm reservation for 2, but weren't seating until 8:35pm - a 50 minute wait. Once we were seated, it took the waitress 15 more minutes to acknowledge that we had sat down. She did not bring us water and did not ask what drinks we wanted until almost 45 minutes later. What started as a great date night ended up being an endless wait for food and drink. Would NOT recommend this cafe to anyone. GooglePlace - November 2017

Great old fashioned! Love the overall look for the place. High ceilings, ceiling fans, private booths make for a romantic atmosphere. The food makes it great for groups. Unfortunately, service is spotty, maybe due to a small, overworked waitstaff that if you’re in a booth, you just tend to be forgotten. GooglePlace - October 2017
