Six Feet Under Restaurant Review

: This second location of a neighborhood joint near Oakland Cemetery (hence the name) lacks the original outpost’s view, but captures a vista of its own that gazes toward the Midtown skyline. Set next to a towering communications rig, the pub generates much of its own electricity from a windmill that churns at the rear of the building. Pub grub rules, although barbecued salmon, spicy Buffalo shrimp and oysters are also options. The Six Feet Under Steamer is a take on Frogmore stew (aka low country boil), with seafood, sausage, corn on the cob and new potatoes. Other items include seafood baskets, with the combo being the best deal; catfish (sometimes muddy tasting) or scallops are $1 extra. All are properly dusted in cornmeal and fried until crisp. House-made tartar sauce is assembled fresh daily. Veggie platters and a burger will keep anti-seafood folks fed. The ice box-style Key lime pie is tasty work, although we find the crust impenetrable. Instead of choosing from the inadequate wine list, get a brew --- there are 24 on tap. The late-night menu, operative after 10 p.m., features appetizers and baskets.
