we made a reservation here for lunch because the reviews said to online but when we arrived here the restaurant was practically empty except for a very senior citizens.

Joe had the crawfish bisque, he said there wasn’t much crawfish in it and the bisque was watery.

This appetizer was amazing! The fried oysters with brie were perfect. It was piping hot of course but that just made the brie melt faster before I bit into it.

Joe had the crawfish etouffee and was surprised it wasn’t the typical creamy sauce that etouffee is usually presented in. He actually said that it seemed that they had poured some of the crawfish bisque over rice and called it crawfish etouffee. I hope for Clancy’s sake that they didn’t do that.

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the crispy soft shell crab. The flavor of the crab was lost among all the spices. The crispiness was a nice texture though.  I had read online that it was one of the best ones in town and so I had high hopes but this dish sort of fell short of my expectations. Also, the mashed potatoes came out really cold!
