  • Andrea kService was great, food was good and I enjoyed the jazz band. The only complaint I have is about the valet parking. The guy that took our car was not very friendly.

    55555 by Andrea k


  • Michael TCrawfish Etouffee was delicious, as was the Blackened Catfish.. The Red Beans and Rice was a little bland for my taste, and the beans were hard and undercooked.. Will return to try the Gumbo..

  • Michael TEtouffee..

    55555 by Michael T


  • Lavonda BThis is a MUST HAVE when you are in Charlotte. If you are vegan/vegetarian, please ask for the sautéed veggies over mash or rice because it's not on the menu.

    55555 by Lavonda B


  • Antonia L.Fried Green tomatoes are my favorite! Shrimp and grits is probably the best in the area

    55555 by Antonia L.

  • Wendy KThe crawfish etouffee is to die for! The Voodoo beer is also wonderful when paired with the fried oysters with remoulade sauce.

    55555 by Wendy K


  • Hale HoeflickSecond place is not that bad. There is no replacement for New Orleans food while in New Orleans but everything is absolutely wonderful. Hard to pass up live jazz. It can be loud but well worth it.

    55555 by Hale Hoeflick
