my first instinct was to write this review while I was still in the restaurant, sick to my stomach. but I waited until today to calm down and think a bit. But, after being sick all night...here goes. This is not the Deanie's from days gone by, or even the Deanie's from a year or two ago. The food was bland, overcooked, and no taste whatsoever. The biggest disappointment was the onion rings, they used to come out in MOUND, to be observed while the waitress carried the platter through the dining room. Now, it was 6 pitiful rings on a decorative skillet. The grease used to fry the catfish, shrimp ect was so old and overused, all you tasted was GREASE, and continued to taste it well after you left. The worst part was the "crawfish po'boy"...this was the nastiest thing I've ever tasted. The crawfish were from the freezer and tasted rotten...after you chewed them for a while a stale fish taste came over your mouth and caused you to gag. We did send that back and it was taken off the bill, but still...for a restaurant to serve that in the first place was unacceptable. The BBQ shrimp, overcooked and placed in a dish of hot worcestershire sauce...pitiful. I am highly disappointed in Deanie's, this used to be THE GO-TO place for seafood...now, it's the place you go to if you're suffering severe constipation and want to pay $200 for relief. Never again, there are way too many other seafood places that won't get you sick.
