Some Southern Comfort...

Walk in and you’re so warmly invited by this excellent restaurant and their staff. The building itself is fabulous, warm, inviting, beautifully decorated and featured with deep colors and warm wood accents. We came in to try their food around the time of their Mardi Gras menu and we had thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We started with a great wine, very reasonably priced and ordered our appetizers. We both ordered the Jambalaya Cajun Soup, it was so flavorful! It was hardy, a little spicy and perfect for waking up the pallet.
Next I had ordered the Grilled Louisiana Cajun Catfish. It was perfectly grilled and topped with a tangy Bayou vegetable relish, served among some Mardi Gras rice the portion was perfect and the Catfish was perfectly grilled. As the fish literally melted in your mouth, the rice added an excellent texture and spice. My husband ordered the BBQ Pork Back Ribs. It comes as slow-cooked fall-off-the-bone back ribs that you can get. It's smothered with they're famous BBQ sauce which holds up well and both spicy and sweet. Served along with it sweet potato, French fries, coleslaw and ancho chipotle dipping sauce. There is not anything you can complain about with that.
We had finished it all off with a little dessert. I ordered the Bourbon Banana Bread, it's baked with a layer of milk chocolate is moist and then paired with a velvety smooth Custard. It's not overly sweet and the custard compliments the bourbon banana bread so well you want to lick the plate clean. My husband had the key lime pie, it was smooth and tangy topped with fresh whip cream you end this night with a party on your taste buds.

Overall we had received it all for well under $100 bucks and for a bottle of wine, appetizers, entree's and dessert that just does not happen often. I was very surprised as to how much I really enjoyed this place and I will be back. It’s worth the drive and is a place I would recommend again and again!

Enjoy and stay hungry!
