If you are looking for a social place to gather, then this is your spot. The food is nothing to rave about and the drinks are water downed and look nothing like the menu photo. My friends and I also felt rushed to go because of how busy it was. Will not be back.
It's a fun place to meet friends or take the family. The food's terrific if you love Cajun cooking. Oysters, crab, crawfish, gumbo, shrimp, fried fish and wonderful key lime pie or the best tasting bread pudding in town. It's casual dining, so it's not trying to compete with Eddie V except in taste and quality of the food... you'll get home made fresh daily cooking, with crawfish and shrimp gumbo that will compete with any place in New Orleans, I guarantee. Ice cold beer on tap, and also margaritas and other frozen adult beverages... you'll be impressed with the quality of the grilled shrimp. Easy parking, easy to find at Ridglea Avenue and Camp Bowie, on the North side of the street near Walgreen's.
The Fort Worth Texas location, is run badly the management was rude, the shell fish we ate had bits of shell still on them when served, we called the main office to advise them of our background in the food industry and our visit, and we still have not recieved a call or email of apology, We do not recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a nice nightout or good food.Reminder if the top managers are reckless with customer service, the people below them will be the same, The only way to get good service is to really give your honest review, not a review from the managers who put fake reviews on this site.
Reservations don't seem to matter and hostesses are clueless and rude. Thirty minutes past our reservation time with our complete party waiting including a person in a wheelchair and they continued to seat people at the tables that should have been reserved for our group.
This is the 3rd time we've tried this place again in the last 6 mths. The 1 st 2 times we went the service was very very slow. The waitress seemed put off and irritated we were there. By the time our food came it was cold. Then when paying the bill it took over 30 min to even get our check after we said we had another engagement after 20 min of waiting. Then. We decided to go again today at 2 pm. We went and there were only about 4 tables there on a Monday. The waitress in fact same one we've had everytime we've gone came and gave us menus. She went off to make drinks, serve other tables take trash out, clean up tables. Go to the restroom. All this while we waited for her to come back and take our order. After staring at her for 25 min while she did this I went up to her and told her we were ready to order. I said poor thing. You must be the only one here. She said yes! Well me and the owner but he's saying he's busy and won't help me. We ordered all you can eat shrimp. We ate and when my husband that is a pretty big guy was ready for his seconds well, that took 20 more minutes to get and she brought back 6 more popcorn shrimps. Needless to say. Another disappointing experience here .. Maybe they need more wait staff. Like I said the last 3 times we went it was the same poor girl there by herself I guess. I guess I would have a stressed out attitude too. Won't be going back there again.
Nice place and good service. Fries are nice and crispy. Have been there twice, and like both times.
Meh! If my experience is typical, you'd better walk away now if you are reading this: many Vietnamese run 'cajun' restaurants are just OK, some are great, some are terrible, most are just OK. This one does not warrant an OK rating.Place seems popular, lots of couples and families come here. For some reason cocktails take forever to show up, and these were the specials. Service in general was just slow too. My fish combo platter was luke warm, fish and veggies, not sure if it was cooked for me or someone before me and I got the returned dish. The side of grits was soupy, and they give you a giant bowl of the stuff. My dining companions also picked and poked at their food, everyone was nice but since we all like to eat and most of us left food on the plates I'm guessing I wasn't alone in my assessment.This place blows.
I LOVE this place. The seafood is always choice selection, perfectly done. When the tuna burger is on the special, get it! Jana is the perfect manager - thoughtful, pleasantly chatty, all about the customer, and the wait staff is definitely on the spot. John does a perfect pour at the table (and he is wicked funny!), and Leah was a pure professional.
This has been the New Orleans experience in Fort Worth !!! Portions are just like New Orleans!!!
so far so good. hand battered fried pickles. great service.
