A little bit of diversity. There are some higher scale clients that come in. Lynard Snikard, Van Zant! 38 special. They always get lightly steamed oysters. Filet mignon is my favorite thing to cook.

What I like best about this……I love hearing that people had a wonderful time eating what I prepared. We put a lot of love in the food. We put love in everything we do.. Main ingredient.

What advice/tips do you have for clients?
If you want to be on the line have a passion for it before you come in. A lt of people come in and think you can just cook but you got to hussle. The number one thing for getting food out on time is having a great team. Team work. Robert McDade. What thy call is that the torno. Its a french term it means the round man a guy who can do anything in kitchen.

Because of our location our busy season is February 1st though the middle of June. Slow seasons are late summer.
