Good, but lacking in a few bits of Louisiana culture.

DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY. You have been warned!

*Pros* The food is decent. The taste of the seafood in a bag is definitely cajun, and well marinated with the works. One whole bag (I can't remember which one I got) had enough crabs, prawns, mussels, cockles, corn and sausages enough for two to share. We also had the boston lobster (the price was on special!) marinated in garlic butter. The mid-joint wings was also pretty decent!

*Cons* Missing mallets! Mallets would be helpful, especially for the lobsters! And perhaps extra wet-wipes and napkins? How about putting a kitchen roll at the table?
And what happened to the root beer? Cajun-style seafood dinners demand either beer, or root beer if you are driving... And I was driving. The waitress told us that they used to carry root beer, but stopped due to low demand. She also told us a few things were no longer on the menu due to pricing costs, including the every popular lobster-sicle.

Recommended: The Works Sauce, no matter what seafood you are getting! The bags are good value.

The removal of some essential items that make it a truly Louisiana experience was pretty sad, as I have experienced  authentic US cajun before and unfortuately this was a derivative of the actual thing. But more importantly, which I hope the owners can probably read this, is that the marinade could possibly use a little stronger taste. The seafood is well marinated, but the cajun flavor I feel wasn't strong enough.

Overall, knowing that the restaurant is new, I'll give them a thumbs up for their effort, and hope that they can improve the authenticity and overall feel of southern-style seafood!

Bad Attitude

Did not like the service of the people working there at all. I will most likely not visit this place or recommend any of my families or friends there. There are too many better places out there to tolerate any bad attitudes in the service industry.

I catch no fish.

Was brought there by my friend, however didn't feel the seafood was that amazing. Maybe it's the way it was cooked and how unappetizing it looked when served in a plastic bag (isn't heated plastic supposed to give you cancer or something?). I've had real Cajun from Louisiana before, and this was not it.

Also thought the seafood wasn't that fresh; I tend to get an allergic reaction on my tongue to prawns crabs and lobsters that are not fresh. My tongue was itching that evening.

Thanks but I'll stick to others.
