I've been here a few times and the first couple of times were okay but nothing too remarkable. This time I had the southern fried chicken which is $20.00 for what is supposed to be half a chicken. I figured I'd eat half of it and take the other half home. I buy a whole chicken from the grocery store every week, and I know how many meals you can make from a chicken. What came was absolutely not half a chicken. There was a wing and a drumstick and then two larger pieces which I thought at first would be the thigh and breast. NOT. Both of those pieces were mostly bones and a lot of skin and approximately one bite of breast meat on each piece. They obviously cut part of the back into two pieces and tried to pass that off as real parts of the chicken. For $20.00 it was a huge rip-off. So that was the first problem.
The second thing wrong was that the coating wasn't very flavourful, it was quite bland. Even some salt would have helped. The gravy was thick and gluey; overall it was just terrible. It was absolutely the worst fried chicken I've ever had in my life. The beans and the coleslaw that came with it though were very good.
My partner ordered the seafood jambalaya and it was also very bland and mostly all rice with a very small amount of seafood. Again, $20 for a dish that is 95% flavourless, bland rice is a huge rip-off. As much as I like the atmosphere of the place, the food and the money that you pay for it is just not worth coming back for.
