We visited Mahoney's before a Mardi Gras ball. The hostess was a lovely, charming woman who joked around with us like she might with her own family. Our server has been with them for 20+ years. He made great recommendations which we appreciated. We started with the Presidential Platter loaded with fried crab claws and soft shell crabs. As we enjoyed that with a cocktail, Mr. Bobby Mahoney stopped by our table to chat for a minute. You can tell they are very hands on and dedicated to your enjoying the experience. My husband had Veal Antonio and he loved it. I had the stuffed snapper and it was fantastic-creamy, delicious and full of huge, gulf shrimp! They absolutely deserve the reputation they have. If you come to the coast treat yourself and if you live here-treat yourself again!
