We were in Georgetown today exploring after a meeting with a client. We asked her about restaurants in the area and she recommended Big Tuna. Not only that, she said to try the deep fried whole Flounder. We walked into the front of the restaurant (it has a back entrance on the water front as well) and were surprised at how rustic it is. They had a pet Scarlett Macaw near the front door that caught my wife's attention, so we delayed a little before getting seated. The place was deserted and we were a little worried, but the hostess took us through to the back and outside again. Another doubt because it was too cold to sit outside. THEN she turned left to the doors on the side of a really old large shack that looked ready to fall dow. She threw open the doors and there it was. A rustic, warm dining room with planks, fishing gear and an old pirogue hanging from the ceiling. We ordered She-Crab soup, Seafood Gumbo and a whole fried Flounder to share. The She-Crab soup was sublime. One of the best, if not the best we have had. The gumbo was different. No roux. Just a thin soup with the vegetables, sausage and shrimp in it. Pretty good, but it was obvious the shrimp were frozen because it's not shrimp season and the taste was a freezer taste. It was good, nonetheless. Now, I have to say that the Flounder was exceptional. It was scored on both side and very lightly breaded. We ate BOTH side, skin and all. Really an exceptional find. It's fun to explore Front Street and the waterfront, too!
