The food is... Interesting. The batter on anything fried is too thick and gritty. The red beans and rice are not like any red beans I have ever made or ordered. I'm from the deep south, so I know my southern food. This red beans and rice would be sold as chili anywhere else in the world. It clearly has chili powder in it, as well as cumin. The popcorn shrimp were decidedly frozen previously and the étouffée tasted a bit like a curry. Maybe it's a Texas take on a NOLA classic? The poboy and smoked oysters were ok according to my husband and mother-in-law, but nothing to remember.
The service was ok, and the atmosphere nice since you can look over the Barbour. I wouldn't come back for the food though. At least not of your looking for good southern food, or food that is properly seasoned/cooked.
