The food here was absolutely delicious. I'll have to say that my favorite hamburger is served at Red Robin, but this restaurant may have beat red robin's burgers. They also have a good selection of seafood and comfort food. The atmosphere of the restaurants kind of like an old Diner. Feels very classic. This is definitely a place worth checking out if you're in New Orleans!

Went in on a random whim as we had just arrived in New Orleans and this was one of three restaurants that were super close to our hotel. Turned out to be a great choice. Food is reasonably priced. Had the grilled catfish which was prepared perfectly along with the pimento grits. The grits were absolutely amazing and a glass of sweet tea. Being raised by my grandparents in Virginia I can say the sweet tea was absolutely on point. Amazing experience the one and only complaint would be the cornbread which I found lacking. Didn’t have much taste and was just a dense hunk to go along with the meal. However, it ultimately did not detract from how amazing everything else was.

Excellent food and drinks. Good variety. Accommodating staff. So good we ate both dinners on a weekend trip to NOLA at High Hat.
