This was my second time here and my wife's first.
We love New Orleans and have been there many times. We LOVE crawfish (mudbugs) and they are pretty hard to come by in CT! Spicy and steaming hot with what we considered to be a moderate but satisfying "burn." Very good flavor (and juicy enough to suck dem little heads)!
The crawfish themselves were fresh and great texture. A little small by Big Easy standards, but decent. (Waiter said they can make them spicier/hotter on request.
We each tried the frog legs, which are flamed at the table. I thought they were kind of salty but very tasty. Wife liked them as is. (The waiter said they can adjust the salt if I mention it.)
She had the shrimp Po Boy. It comes with fried popcorn shrimp but can be upped to the larger shrimp and made grilled for $5 more. It looked good with nice fresh veggies and soft/firm shrimp. Came with cole slaw and sweet potato chips. I had the grilled catfish special - its 3 nice fillets gently grilled with spinach and other sautéed veggies in a very light sauce. I loved it. It came with yellow rice, steamed fresh broccoli and a nice hunk of cornbread. (Also got a nice fresh salad and bread.)
This is a nice change of pace and we will be back. Friendly service. Very casual.
Oh, and the Virgin Lime in de Coconut frozen drink is fantastic! If you've never had an Abita Amber (and you like amber beers), give it a try. It's not bad.
