As a first time visitor to the area I was looking for some good local seafood choices. Someone recommended Mudcat Charlie's and it sounded like a local enough kind of joint. The waitress was absolutely gorgeous, could certainly be a model and was also generally ignorant about the menu. I asked her what the house specialty was. What was the one dish I would have to have if I was only ever able to eat there once in my lifetime? She said, "People say the steaks are good....and the seafood." Wow. So, I guess the pork and chicken are out but otherwise everything is "the best thing" they have.
I decided (on my own) to have the stuffed soft shell crab and it was delicious. Gator appetizer was also good. The hush puppies were a little dry. The waitress remained gorgeous throughout my entire meal. The 5 stars for atmosphere are mostly for her but the 2 stars for service was because she had no idea what was coming out of that kitchen.
