    The crab cakes are about an inch thick and perfectly crusted. Fried green tomatoes with a thinner corn crust are equally wonderful. They had a good flourless cake we would have tried if we weren't stuffed from the wonderful lunch. Best gf meal we've had in baton rouge hands down.

    Excellent gluten free food! Staff was very knowledgeable on GF. They have a dedicated fryer and GF batter so all fried things are GF! Fresh fish is delivered twice a day and delicious! Their fried catfish appetizer and fried green tomatoes were SO good! And our daughter was thrilled to be able to get chicken tenders from the kids menu!

    There is really nothing I can add that hasn't already been said about this wonderful place. It was as good as everyone said. Too bad I live 300 miles away!

    This place made my heart so Happy! I have to be Dairy free as well as GF and often find that all the exciting GF choices have dairy. But this place rocked my world! Fries green tomatoes with THE most amazing remoulade! And crab cakes with remoulade, with a corn and bacon side and delicious thin french fries. It was the best meal I've had in a long time! I'm not celiac but I do have reactions and I didn't have any symptoms after eating here.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful. I actually can’t have gluten or dairy and they double-checked with the chef that what I wanted would be safe. As a friend pointed out their drink menu “is on point.” Great!

    The chef came out to talk with us and make sure she knew what our food sensitivities were. Their catfish and all fried food are made with gluten free bread crumbs. They also have a dedicated frier for their French fried.

    This unsuspecting gem of a restaurant is tucked away at the end of a quiet shopping center slightly off the beaten path. Upon walking through the door you are warmly greeted by the charming host and any number of the attentive waitstaff. You quickly feel at home and realize you know this place. It is every trendy restaurant you have ever tried and fallen in love with. The menu is a symphony of creole and cajun with GF markers abound all indicated with a simple asterisk. No calling on managers or 20 questions with the server. To paraphrase Willy Wonka, it's all there, plain as day, clear as crystal. I ordered the fried seafood platter with catfish, oysters and shrimp all resting atop a mound of crispy French fries. I had finally found heaven and it was coated in gluten free batter. My Husband had the shrimp and grits which were also outstanding and GF. I can't wait to go back and try the seared yellowfin tuna and fall in love all over again.

    Excellent restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Baton Rouge. They did not have a Gluten Free Menu but the staff were all very knowledgeable about needing a GF meal due to an allergy. They have dedicated fryers. The cheesy grits were wonderful. And the fried seafood platter (which I have never been able to order at other restaurants) was delicious.

    A real neighborhood gem! My brother found this place when looking for a place to take me when I came to visit. I had gluten free fried seafood for the first time in over 5 years!!! It was delish!
