From the Proprietor
We are thrilled to have our delicious shell Gulf oysters back in house. I just want to give our oyster lovers a heads up on the size of the Gulf oysters right now. Normally we usually get around 80-100 oysters in a box, but right now we are averaging 50-60 in a box. Bottom line - they are HUGE! So please take that into consideration when buying boxes of shell Gulf oysters. 

October 12 (Friday!) is National Gumbo Day! We will be dishing up chicken and sausage gumbo along with our traditional seafood gumbo in the restaurant in celebration. We hope you can  join us!

Quick construction update: Everything is still coming along. We hit a few road bumps with equipment and such but we are back on track and truckin' right along! The most exciting update this week (at least to me!) is the bathroom stalls. Handmade with love and absolutely beautiful - I can't wait till they are done.  Check out the newest pictures here
