Default Semi live report

OK the wife and I went here early this afternoon, so it's not really live. My first impression of the place was that it reminded me of a sports bar, with large TVs on the walls. We ordered, and the food arrived quickly. I ordered fried catfish & oysters. She got the fried shrimp. Our sides were red beans & rice and onion rings. All the food was outstanding! It was so good, we decided to order a cup of chowder each. She got the clam and I got the lobster. The problem with restaurants like this one is that I want to order what I know is good, but I also want to try something new. There wasn't anything I wouldn't want to order again. We'll defenitely be going back.

Man I appreciate you stopping by and I am happy the food was good. We got slammed about 6 pm, had lots of folks waiting in line, I am sure we may not have pleased everyone but i think it would be because of the service and not the food. How do you prepare for this, we did not really advertise to speak of, I think we served over 250 plates today, crazy. We will get better, we are expecting big crowds Friday and the weekend, don't hold it against us if everything is not perfect, give us a second chance, we are new to this business.Thanks for even trying us out.

You know amigo every company and and restaurants go threw growing pains and learning curve, especially when you get slammed that first week or so. Can't wait to come see you when Riley and I are up there during Christmas.

Going great, Fridays and Saturday evenings have been pretty packed up until around 8 or so, we will be there tonight celebrating, my son popped the question last night and she said yes. If you see a rowdy crowd in the back it will probably be us.

I am going to let the cat out of the bag, we put in for a permit to extend the parking lot, should be able to get 20 plus more spots, we are going to add a cantina in the back of the building, right now it is about 1800 feet of storage, hopefully it will have open view roll up doors that lead out into a really cool outdoor garden for eating or just having a drink, if the city will allow it will be a game changer, we are also checking into valet parking for Fridays and Saturdays, if i have to I will have the employees park at my house, I have plenty room and I live about 400 yards away, that would give us 60-65 parking spaces.

We tried to order crawfish Thursday and they were sold out, they did tell us they were small and we would get quite a few dead ones, we should have some in the next week or so, we are going to experiment with how we are going to prepare them, thinking about going with the clean water boil or steam and then soak in seasoned water, been doing a lot of research on it, any opinions are welcome.

The spicier the better for me.

I know it's hard for a restaurant to have real spicy stuff, as not everyone likes that, but if there's something on a menu that claims to be spicy, I'm ordering it.
