Okay, okay… I’ll admit this place is good, but seriously– is it worth the hype? The longest I’d be willing to wait for this place is 30 minutes. It’s not real Cajun food, but the flavors are good. The seafood is fresh. The servers are nice. And I guess for the location and community, the restaurant is kind of a novelty. Heck, they serve you food in a plastic bag. I’m shocked my dad ate as much as he did.

I think I prefer their garlic butter flavor over lemon pepper and the whole shebang. I’d stay away from their fried calamari and oysters the next time (at least at this branch), but I might try their catfish. (If you want good fried oysters, buy some oysters– enough to feed you, me, and my fam– and come over to my house. I’ll get my dad to fry them up for you.) The clams and shrimp were good, but the corn was definitely my favorite. Next time, I’ll get the dungeness crab too.

I keep hearing that the Garden Grove location is the best, so I guess I’ll have to swing by that spot next time.

PRICE: Reasonable
RATING: Good food, but not a fan of the atmosphere.
DIRECTIONS: NQRW456L to Union Square
RESERVATIONS: You’ll need them during game times

The food was good, but not good enough to make up for the frat like atmosphere. Maybe if I were into sports or white frat boys I’d come back.
