The the other fare is what it is. Most people come for Crawfish when it is in season. I personally go with other menu items such as the club.
As for the bar scene it varies more than a bi-polar schitzo. Cool and low key some nights, douchbaggery in full effect other nights. Parking always sucks unless you get there around 10am, just before they open.
There are still a few bartenders that will take care of you, until they burn out, which could be any day now.
