This place was average. The wait staff was friendly and the food came out in a timely manner; however the food tasted really bland. We were told that the company was still adjusting recipes but you pretty much get an understanding on the style of preparation they are going to have. I’d have to try this place again in 3 to 5 months before I could honestly recommend it to others. Oysters We ordered two different types: The Alabama White BBQ Sauce and the Butter & Garlic. The oysters are prepared in a wood fire oven as opposed to being prepared charbroiled. This cooking style definitely made a difference in the overall taste. Both styles just okay but definitely not worth recommending or trying again. The Alabama White BBQ ones actually tasted a little better than the Butter & Garlic. Catfish & Chips The fish tasted good. It was beer battered (like Captain D’s) and I was informed that upfront, but not sure how many people really like this style an over traditional cornmeal breading. The chips were French fries. Low Country Boil This was a traditional boil, consisting of shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes. The shrimp were very large. This dish would have been way better if it had more seasoning. If ordering, suggest heavy seasoning. Nashville Hot Chicken This was the better dish of the visit. I love spicy food and description was very accurate. However, the balance of spice to flavor was great. This dish is not for everyone but it’s one of the better entrees. I’d order this again.
This place is the definition of “a hole in the wall”. And it’s even BYOB. You order your each item individually at a window, they prepare it and you pick a place to sit. This allows you to order any combination of your favorite items! We ordered 2 points of shrimp, 2 pounds of crawfish, crab legs, potatoes, sausage and corn. Everything was good. The ONLY things I wish they would serve are fried catfish and French fries. I’d highly recommend this place to any seafood lover.
My husband and I have eaten here for lunch several times and have enjoyed it every time we went. The food was good and different from many other restaurants in the area. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because we had to sit at a bar table that wasn't all that comfortable. We have also been bar patrons of the Lodge and agree that it has a fun vibe.
