Place, food and ambiance are great. The service was a bit slow. We were a party of 9 so had a lot of order, but two coffees were cold and the bottomless Mimosas did not have any fizz left in them. Other than that our Starters and Entrees were delicious and warm. More

Cajun | Redondo Beach, Beach Cities

We went on Mardi Gras for the party, and it was good music and good fun. Super packed, which was to be expected as it was unusually busy. The rush overwhelmed the bar staff so the service was poor, and they had "one-night-only" bar staff ,who were very nice, but who didn't know the specials, nor what was in stock. Food came out of the kitchen in parts, so people were eating while it was hot, but without complete meals....my side dish came out after I was basically done, so I got a box to go. It was still delicious, and The Pig Whistle Flight was worth the wait. We go a few times a year, and I'm sure we'll go back again. More
