Landry’s has never been a personal favorite. It feels like the menu changes every time I visit, which isn’t often. Their gumbo is made with a signature burned roux that tastes like overcooked gravy. It’s highly undesirable and the company should consider removing it from the menu. The Fried Seafood Platter was good and appropriately priced. The Gold Burger was good as well. Overall, the experience was lesser than desirable. While both entrees were good, having to ask suggestions multiple times for what should have been simple menu options and then needing additional condiments to make the experience feel okay just makes you want to dine where you know things will be perfect every visit.
Seafood and Chicken Box closed this location in May 2009. Opened in the new location is 5954 Chalkville Mountain Road, Suite 200 in the Trussville Shoping Center. Still family owned and operated, same delicious food seasoned with their unique seasoned called "GOO"
Every now and then you have to throw caution to the wind and splurge on yourself whether it be with a new outfit, a nice vacation or a wonderful meal. The wonderful meal is where "Ocean" comes in. This isn't your average seafood restaurant where you'll find a decent meal at a decent price. A visit to Ocean is an experience. And yes, the food is pricey but the menu is extensive, the service is exceptional and the atmospere is classy and cozy. By far, the best seafood meal I've had in town.
