Our party of six was seated in the corner near the back bar and our drinks came quickly. I decreed today a special occasion and threw off my ‘cheap eats’ rules and Ms. Classy and I each ordered a glass of wine and our party started with an order of crab and artichoke dip ($9.25). I really liked the large, tender hunks of artichoke and large shreds of crab. The cheese was creamy and the flavor was very mild as to not overpower the crab.
My brother chimed in and said the jambalaya was absolutely amazing. He noted that the sausage was some of the best he’s ever had in his life (real chorizo, not some package-seasoned ground sausage). He continued to gush on and said the calamari raised his expectations for all future calamari. His only previous experience with calamari was the deep fried appetizer at Red Lobster, so he admitted that his bar was set fairly low, but permanently raised after this dinner. I did notice that it was an impressive amount of meat (especially of the seafood persuasion) for a $14.95 meal.
