Video games such as Golden Tee, Big Buck Hunter and trivia keep the age-diverse crowd coming back for more, and the jukebox's music selection ranges from acid jazz to Top 40 to country. A selection of New Orleans-style bar food is available for noshing; try the catfish po'boy with cabbage and hot sauce or fish tacos.
