THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Creole Seafood House & Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: It’s Mardi Gras all the time here with lots of purples, greens and golds throughout the interior. All guests get New Orleans-style beaded necklaces as well. The festivities extend to the food; there’s much to shout about. The baked crabcakes are one of the continual hits, as is Grouper Beinville-grouper topped with pieces of fish, crabmeat, shrimp, mushrooms, spices and a light cheese sauce. The blackened marinated tuna is also a treat. One of this restaurant’s signature items is the boiled crawfish (served when in season from December to July). It is flown in from Louisiana and served daily with an all-you-can-eat option. A lighter, but no less tasty choice, is spinach sauce over a poached egg on top of toasted French bread. As if they weren’t busy enough, the restaurant makes its own hot sauces (also available for takeout) and smoked pork sausage.
