Nice looking place with a beautiful view. Right across from the New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor. You can watch the zillion dollar yachts cruise out the harbor en route to Lake Pontchartrain. The main dining room has a regular bar, oyster bar, and a char-grilled oyster station. You can also dine on an outdoor balcony cooled with fans.
I’m normally a pretty crabby person, so we started out with a double shot of crab. Crab Cakes and Crab Dip:
Both were very good! I asked the waiter about the crab dip before we ordered, and he described it as a cream cheese based dip with lump crab meat, served with house made tortilla chips. So I was expecting hot chips and cold dip. It was the opposite. The dip was piping hot but the chips were cold, but good!
Next we moved on to a cup of Crawfish Etouffee and Turtle Soup:
The etouffee was a total disappointment. Decent flavor but there were only FOUR crawfish tails in the whole cup. So I paid $8.95 for a cup of rice and sauce. Not acceptable.
Speaking of disappointment, they didn’t bring me any Sherry to add to my turtle soup. I thought there was a law in Louisiana saying they had to do that. Anyway, it was just “Ok” at best. I forgot to ask if they use real turtle meat in their soup.
We finished off with the Seafood Salad and the BBQ Shrimp Po-Boy:
Both were delicious! And they served the po-boy like you’d serve a French Dip sandwich. With a little bowl of the buttery, delicious, bbq shrimp sauce on the side to dip the sandwich in! Easily the best BBQ Shrimp poboy I ever had. If you like the one Liuzza’s serves, you’ve got to come try this one.
Oh, finally, on the way out I snapped this picture of some oysters on the half shell some guy ordered:
If you dine out in public you’re not above a weirdo like me taking pictures of your food. I love horseradish, and there’s a container of it on each table. These raw oysters were HUGE! If your a fan, this is a good place to have them.
Overall a great lunch. I recommend the place.
