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.

The FOOD and SERVICE was great!! The FRESHEST seafood. Went on a very cold night, but the atmosphere made it warm. Let's talk about that BLUE CRAB DIP😍😍 the wait staff is very knowledgeable about the menu. I would recommend this place again.

I had a fantastic time here with my family! There was live music downstairs and for a more subdued environment a dinning rooming upstairs with an upstairs patio overlooking the lake. The band was terrific. We dined upstairs and ordered calamari, shrimp and grits, blue crab pasta and a burger. Everyone enjoyed their food. I would say for expense wise it's 2.5 to 3 $ out of 5$. I do recommend this place.

The view is magnificent. The service was good and attentive. Food was good. Parmesan calamari was great and raw oysters were cold and salty. Prices are just too high for the product. They wanted 31 dollars for the stuffed flounder. Place was packed so his bless em
