Good looking young lady servers

Lunch July 5th. Nicky was our great looking young lady server, She provided great and fast service. I had tilapia and shrimp Over white rice with a white sauce. The shrimp was very rubbery and chewy, the tilapia and sauce were very good. The music was a bit loud for me. Try this place you will like... read more

I like this place. It has open bar and atmosphere. It isn't big but just enough seating to enjoy your surroundings. Menu choices range from oysters, clams, po boys, crawfish, peel n eat shrimp, crab legs etc. They have a smoked oyster that is really good. It is nice to get about a half dozen with a beer and enjoy... More

I typically give a restaurant two chances if they're not too bad. After my second visit, I give it 3 stars. Food's alright, nothing special. The hush puppies were the best thing on the menu, if that helps any. Everything else was too spicy!

My daughter had the shrimp platter, but none of the shrimp was de-veined. I thought that this was strange, but was told when I asked that all the shrimp was served with the vein in.

I was disappointed in our visit at the Trussville location. The "fresh" Royal Red shrimp were not the pretty red color they should have been and did not look fresh. They had a funny grayish color. The fried shrimp were so little they barely could butterfly them. However, the fried dill pickles were really good. We had not been here... More

There were 5 of us - the three college-agers ordered Shrimp PoBoys, which came with lots of curly fries. We ordered Cajun chicken with fried okra, and catfish Ponchatrain with crawfish etouffee, which were both very delicious. Prices quite reasonable (lunch).

I had the grilled chicken with rice. Everything was spicy hot and they use the same oil to fry everything in. I asked. My portion of chicken was under 2 ozs. For the price, not worth it at all! It was the tiniest chicken breast I've ever seen, and I asked that it not be spicy, yet it was spicy... More

We have been to the Cajun Steamer in Trussville many times. And we have gotten the snapper LOTS! It is so consistently good we order it again and again. Of course, sometimes it is cooked to slightly different levels of "doneness" for lack of a better term. But I concede that in restaurants....you are not going to get the same... More
