Great meal, service underwhelming
by Schwartz on 1/22/12
Ate here after the WWII museum. The restaurant is gorgeous. Our server sucked, but I'm fairly certain that was entirely her fault and not an issue with the restaurant as a whole. If I'm dropping $50 on lunch for two, I don't expect to need to remind the server to refill my water.

Drinks:
Jezebel: I'm a huge fan of Hendrick's gin, so when I saw it used in a cocktail I was all about it...it's too bad that the cocktail sucked. Way too sweet. Oh well, shoulda known better.

Entrees:
French dip: Wife decided to go with it instead of straying out too much. It was damn good, but nothing special/out of the ordinary.

Perfect pig poboy: Very reminiscent of a banh mi. Pickled veggies, cilantro, mint. Lots of pork products...if I recall correctly, pulled pork, pork belly, and ham. I thought it was great. The lightness of the veggies and herbs were a perfect contrast to the fat of the pork belly.

Total without tip: $50

went for an early dinner yesterday.

I had the perfect pig po boy. it was dressed banh mi style, with pork shoulder, ham and belly. was excellent. others at the table had the soft shell crab po boy, shrimp po boy, fried oyster app, chicken fried steak, sloppy joe sliders, and mini cheeseburgers. everyone enjoyed the meal.

service was great. waitress was knowledgable, and managed to keep our drinks full without being inrusive. was my 2nd time there (last time i got the pork cheeks, which were also very good)

I highly recommend this place. will be going back soon for the beef tongue sandwich.

nice lunch spot
by Eddie Vedder on 3/3/10
got the shrimp and sausage poboy. huge sandwich with lots of sausage and shrimp and an excellent sauce. sausage is made in-house and not in a casing, so it is irregularly sized chunks. has a sweet flavor i wasn't expecting but was very good. enjoyed the sandwich quite a bit. had to eat it with a fork because it was too big and messy to pickup. ended up leaving half of the bread because I was full but wanted to make sure I didn't leave any shrimp or sausage behind.

wife had the pulled pork sandwich. it was also huge, with big chunks of roast pork. was very good; wife could only eat about half of it.

both meals came with homemade chips. chips were ok but very greasy; nothing special.

service was excellent. wait staff was very polite and extremely attentive. place was pretty busy but we didn't have to wait long for anything. we order based on waiter's recommendations and were very pleased.

definitely worth the stop, especially if you are at the D-Day museum anyway.

The shrimp and spicy sausage poboy is EXCELLENT! The homemade chips that came with it were ok.
