This Lakeshore "seafood house" "overlooking Lake Pontchartrain" feels like a "classic" thanks to a "marina-style setting" that reminds many "of the old-line restaurants at the lakefront years ago" ; "huge portions" of "delicious" "fried seafood platters, shrimp, oysters" , crab and po' boys are delivered at a "leisurely" pace that invites diners to savor the "gorgeous" views.

Always love the food! So happy they finally started serving breakfast on the weekends with a simple menu but so good. I always order the spinach and mushrooms omelet with fruit and its only $8. My husband orders the plain cheese omelet $7 with a stack of blueberry pancakes $9, which are so delicious! Their cheese biscuits and cheese grits are to die for! With coffee and a soda breakfast runs about $30 or so which compared to other local places is a steal! Will definitely continue to return again and again.

Amazing meal! The wedge salad was amazing with the candied bacon (so extra but so good), the raw oysters fresh and plump, the blue crab dip was delicious, the BBQ shrimp and grits amazing, and the drinks are on point. A pleasant meal by the water with an attentive staff. All the food came fast and hot. Tip: come for the awesome happy hour, can't beat 60 cents oysters! If you want outside seating come early. Special shout out to Christopher, he was great!

Amazing. Fresh. Food. First time here, came to visit and celebrate a friends 30th birthday. Blue Crab dip is amazing, very savory. Cat fish is fresh. The service is personable and they move with urgency. When we got there we thought there was a wait, but we were sat instantly. Server, Hayden was amazing and had great suggestions. He was very attentive. When we come back, we will be back for sure.
