I love seafood and this is the place to go for lunch or dinner. I would suggest a platter for lunch, as they are reasonable priced and you get two sides with them. My favorite is the broiled shrimp, scallops, and fish. It is the perfect portion for lunch, and the seasoning is great. They also have a fried seafood platter, fried clam strips, catfish, shrimp, and more. In addition, they have an extensive selection of sandwiches if you aren’t in the mood for a platter. I would suggest the crab cake sandwich r the oyster Po’Boy. Both are great and a tradition with the locals.
Check out the appetizer menu for some great seafood scores. They have oysters, oyster shooters, mussels, shrimp, chowders, and salmon bites. They are a great start to rest of the meal.
For dinner, the options for food are endless: the broiled combo (fish, scallops, crab cakes, and shrimp), seafood skillet Lafayette (crabmeat; scallops; shrimp; portabella mushrooms; and a rich, creamy cheese sauce), seafood bouillabaisse (everything from the sea that you can eat, all thrown together with pasta), and the fresh flounder topped with crabmeat. The list goes on an on. If you are in a simpler mood, you can get the daily special filet of fish, some clam strips, fried catfish, or crab legs.
If you aren’t a seafood lover or just feel the need for some meat, they offer a chicken breast, barbeque, and steak. But, personally, I would stick with the seafood; you are on the water after all. They have an extensive kid’s menu here, and they offer them everything from grilled cheese to clam strips.
They offer some good desserts, and the brownie sundae is very good. They have perfected the art of warming the brownie, then adding chocolate sauce and cold, creamy vanilla ice cream. The key lime cheesecake is a different take on the recipe, because it also includes white chocolate. I would suggest this dessert to settle your stomach (in case you overindulged).
