Good Cajun food near Civic Center with quality oyster selection, delicious hush puppies and a modern ambiance. Boxing room is a great stop if you're craving some NOLA-style food and drinks. Large, open room with a modern feel, the food overall is really good and the prices are high but reasonable for what you get.

Solid Southern food, amazing service, pleasant ambiance, no wait. I went at 5:30PM on a Sunday and had no wait (surprise!) for a table for 3. Our waitress was amazing -- she spent several minutes explaining the menu, coloring the descriptions with her preferences, which was exactly what we wanted. The hush puppies are good (of course). For mains, I liked the Shrimp Po Boy and the Gulf Shrimp & Rock Cod Court Bouillon. The shrimp in the former were deep fried to perfection. Decadent, delicious flavor. The ambiance is kind of rustic. We had a nice booth next to a window. The circular overhead lighting is really cool too. I'll be back to this place at some point.

Awesome spot near the Opera House. Brilliant southern and Creole flavors. Wines on tap. Decent beer list. I recommend the fried gator tail, and the fried oyster sandwich. Good ambience, friendly service, and you can make reservations on OpenTable. I made a reservation for 6 p.m. And call the restaurant to see if I can move it up by 30 minutes and they were able to accommodate me. This is a great pick if you're going to the Opera House the food was tasty and service was super quick and we got to the theater on time.

Not really sure why this place doesn't at least have 4 stars. I've come here twice now for brunch, and I have to say I would say it's a solid place for brunch. It's located right across from a parking garage on Gough and Grove, so if you're worried about parking in Hayes Valley, this place should be an easy choice. The place is pretty cute inside, and it has a raw oyster bar which is pretty cool. Both times I've come here I got the gumbo soup, and I was pretty satisfied both times. It has a nice deep smokey flavor, some kick, and good chunks of sausage. I really liked the fried catfish po'boy. Was fried really well - crisp on the outside, and still moist. Service was solid - no complaints both times. Came here before 1PM each time, and it was pretty slow, so if you're looking to secure a reservation, this could be a good choice. Lastly, not many places are fit for groups over 4, and this place is sizable enough where you could maybe come with a group of 8 for brunch.

Came for brunch on Sunday morning; took awhile to get our food. Hush puppies and beignets were okay. (I still like Brenda's beignets are better.) The pork belly hash and gumbo were pretty decent. Nice place to hang out; liked the space a lot.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for a quick bite before the SF Symphony. Our waiter was very attentive and able to get us to the symphony on time. We had their salad special of the day-- I can't remember what it was but I know it did have fresh peaches and was delicious. We shared a half dozen oysters which were just ok (the variety the waiter recommended were smaller than we expected :( ). I loved the duck & sausage jambalaya. I ordered the small portion and wish I had ordered the large instead. My boyfriend had the gumbo which was just okay, a bit lacking in flavor compared to what we've had in the south. We'll have to come back for the happy hour and try more of the small plates!
