    Their happy hour cannot be beat. Three signature cocktails for $5 each and bar bites at $5 make this a great after work/early evening option. Sit on the patio if the weather is nice!

    The Southern-themed restaurant offers $5 cocktails and $4 beers during its weekday happy hour, along with half-price appetizers, such as biscuits and gravy, pork sliders and bread-and-butter pickles. Read more

    Good for lunch or dinner with a nice menu of the Louisiana classics. The gumbo & jambalaya are good. Plenty of nice seafood option. Sunday Brunch is a must try too.

    I live on the other side of the country, when I'm in DC I always come here at least once! Quality, creativity, flavors, presentation to portion size I give this place 5 stars!

    Charbroiled oysters are phenomenal. Eggs acadiana crab cakes are a good choice- generous with potatoes- maybe too much. Seafood crepes are a good appetizer

    The free biscuits with pepper-jelly butter, BBQ Shrimp, Turtle Soup, and Chargrilled Oysters. Po'boys are the best in DC, but are only available on weekdays at lunch.

    The crab cakes were delightful. I was very pleased with my duck entree. Other items to try are the beignets and pecan tart. The grillades and grits with veal are also good.

    Try the Fried Green Tomatoes - Very tasty fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp. At the top of the pic is cream cheese & pepper jelly, which is perfect on a homemade biscuit!

    The best dish on the menu is by far the CHAR-BROILED OYSTERS- smothered in butter and Parmesan, grilled on the half shell and served with a baguette!!! OMG! Orgasmic!!!

    Extremely comfortable "table for 1" section above the bar area that's got great chairs and relatively quiet compared to the rest of the restaurant.

    Charbroiled Oysters are fantastic. Corn and crab soup is amazing. If you're in Washington DC, you must visit this restaurant.

    The chopped seafood salad is perfect on a hot day. If you even think you like charbroiled oysters, theirs is the best I've ever had. The manger, Boo Kim, is a real gentleman.

    This place has a great kid's menu, offers crayons and sculpty wax sticks to kids, and won't freak out about decent kid behavior. The adult food and drinks are top-notch.

    For $29, you can chow down on unlimited Gulf oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp, meat pies, beignets, and more. Bonus, you can watch sports there.

    We sat outside on a weeknight and the service was rather mediocre, at best; however, the BLT salad and duck were pretty good, and I was told the same of everyone else's entree.

    Wonderful place. Management needs to offer the bucket of Abitas for every happy hour on the patio. Saves the staff from running for drafts. Read more

    Happy hour ends before some get off from work. Applies to appetizers only, but the drinks are well worth the full price.

    Don\'t have Tim serve you. He\'s a disrespectful and pretentious pile of bullocks. Derek is great though! The BLT salad, fried catfish were great, avoid the shrimp and grits.
