We found this wonderful little restaurant tucked alongside a little river in peaceful Townsend, TN. We received a warm, friendly greeting upon arrival. I ordered the shrimp po'boy and my husband had the shrimp étouffée. We also ordered fried green tomatoes. The tomatoes were really tasty, lightly fried with a thin crispy coating and served with both ranch sauce and another sauce made with ranch, hot sauce and spices. This sauce had a really nice kick to it. The shrimp po'boy was serve on a very light crisp roll. The shrimp were fried to perfection. The sandwich was topped off with crisp lettuce, tomatoes and a tasty sauce. The shrimp étouffée was also very tasty with plenty of shrimp and spicy andouille. I got the sweet potato fries with my sandwich - the best I've ever had - hand cut, not frozen from a package! We topped our meal off with fresh-made beignets and coffee. These were lighter and tastier than the ones we had in New Orleans!
The restaurant is small and doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside was warm, inviting, very tastefully decorated with an exquisite view of the river. We ate indoors, but they also have a really nice outdoor patio with the same view of the river.
The prices were very reasonable- lunch around $7.00.
We learned they also have live music several times a week. There is also a small bar when you first enter.
We learned that they have only been in business since last October. Hope they have continued success. We will be back again!
