From the ICW east bound turn left at Chef Menteur Pass. Call the "RR swing bridge" on VHF-13 as you round the enterance to the pass. Be forwarned, there can be quite a bit of current. Once through the RR bridge make a wide turn to the left into the first inlet. Marked by a well worn out shell ground and right next to the old fort. Proceed slowly sounding as you go. Locals report the water can get very low (less than 4 feet). About 300 yards in turn right into the marina. There is an old marina on the right and a boat ramp dead ahead. Sounding as you go slowly turn left and you will see a yellow two story four-plex. The marina is right in front of it. There are two piers right before the fuel pumps for visiting boats.

Go only in at high water. The entrance is soft but has even at HW only 4 ft. Rest was ok, but the Dock has no electricity.

Great place with some really good food!, 2012-02-26

The chef fell in love with Cajun food when going to school in Illinois, so after graduation, he moved to the area. He suggested the blackened shrimp and they were the best I have ever eaten. Another patron told me shrimp season had just ended, else I would have gotten some jumbo shrimp right off the boats that fish out of there.

$25 to spend the night. They only have 15/20 amp electricity at the docks. No showers, but restrooms in the bar area are available through the little store.

The bartender could not tell us how to find the place over the phone. Turn West into the first bayou North of the RR bridge, South of the remains of the old Fort. We had enough water to get our 5.5' draft sailboat in, and there was a small towboat in the marina, too.

Nice place, 2011-12-31

This is for the price a quick stop over before the Mississippi Sound, or returning from the Sound. I developed a engine and fuel problem and was told about by a boat that was there and heard me talking to a tug about places to get fuel. The RR Swing Bridge heard me and gave directions. Beware of current through the bridge. Approch slow and sound as you go. I had 7 feet of water (Three if you subtrack the Keel.

No one to help dock unless someone is at the fuel pier. Beth the store manager / Marina harbor master was a Trip. Lot os fun. When we arrived there was no fuel at the fuel dock. IT was off season. But they are also a filling station. Luckly that I had two 5 gal cans for gas. IT was a short walk from the pump to the dock ( 100 to 150 ft.. They normally have gas at the pumps but had just ran out.

All in all a nice place but mainly geared for the local fisherman. As I said this was off season, but the food at the resturant was great. But no heads, or showers that why the two star,
