I adore Commander's. Finally had the turtle soup. It was amazing...just like everything else. I've hesitated to try it in the past. Just thought it would taste too weird. Turtle? Really.
Well, it's not weird at all. It is very, very rich. The turtle pieces tasted like crab...but not fishy. Just melt-in-your-mouth tender. I had the shrimp and grits.complex and wonderful. Just a tad on the spicy side. But, just barely. My husband had the pecan crusted gulf fish (black drum), and it was lovely. It had a very light cream sauce with a hint of sweet corn flavor. Was awesome with the fish.
My only complaint is that the service is too good. I feel they hover a bit much for my comfort. I don't want people at my table every minute interrupting conversations. But seriously, I'll deal with that to enjoy commanders every chance I can before I die.
