About us

We are a family-owned restaurant located in Lockhart Texas; The little city with the big heart! The city has a great selection of restaurants but not many seafood establishments. As fans of New Orleans style seafood, we wanted to bring that to our amazing town. We take pride in serving the best food around and strive to make your visit a great experience.
