We had dinner here in the busy summer season and were happy to find the restaurant open for lunch during the fall. It was very quiet when we arrived just after noon. Our server was friendly and attentive.
I really wanted the crabcake but didn't see it on the menu. I didn't inquire about it, only because on a cold day the crawfish gumbo caught my attention. It was a generous portion with 2 fried shrimp topping the mound of rice, bite sized pieces of crawfish and sausages were in the sauce, which was not overly spiced. I added some Old Bay and hot sauce which was already on the table.
My husband ordered the clam chowder and a shrimp po boy. The chowder was loaded with flavor and clams, ham and potatoes. The po boy was huge with plump fried shrimp. The sandwich came with shoe string fries.
Even if you're not ordering oysters here, the rest of the seafood is fresh and well prepared.
