Who'd have thought a chain serving enormous volumes of food could be this good? Spectacular etouffee, lovingly prepared gumbos, delicately broiled seafood and mountains of fried stuff are turning out crowds that cause 90-minute waits. Go early. Real early.
The vibrant culture of New Orleans comes to Inman Park in this restaurant/market/community haven. The restaurant is located on the main floor and serves classic New Orleans dishes with a modern twist. Brunch is available on Saturdays and Sundays. The market is located on the lower level and boasts shelves of fair trade goods, organic homemade breads, premium cheeses and much more. A casual patio is also available for all your relaxation needs.
This Marietta seafood joint has one lengthy po'boy menu. Po'boys are served "dressed" and come with your choice of fresh-cut french fries or red beans and rice. The shrimp version is a monster of a sandwich, tightly wrapped in white paper, and measuring a foot in length. The shrimp are on the small side, but the amount packed into the sandwich makes up for this shortcoming. Don't forget one of the sauces, such as the lime-dill tartar.
Around for more than 30 years, this boisterous, no-frills seafood shack has a wrap-around bar and outdoor seating. The draw here is the steamed shrimp and lobster sold by the pound in aluminum bucket with tangy beer butter.
The paneled Southern seafood shack decor works (think wooden booths, long tables, a horseshoe bar). And so does the food. Shrimp, crab cakes, oysters, crab legs, clams, scallops, mussels, catfish and po'boys are all fresh and tasty. All in all, Six Feet Under fills the gap of the disappearing inexpensive seafood shack.
