For more than 30 years, this party spot has brought the flavor of Mardi Gras to downtown with its nightly live music and spicy cooking. Oysters are offered in almost two dozen styles. Classic fare includes red beans and rice, étouffée, jambalaya and gumbo, plus shrimp and grits. A variety of sandwiches and tacos are featured, including a muffaletta and po' boys. For a taste of something different, try the fried gator bites or crawfish enchiladas. The courtyard beer garden is a popular spot in warm weather.
