Snug Harbor Restaurant Review

: Snug Harbor’s circa 1800s building has been home for the past three decades to one of the most notable jazz venues in the country. The kitchen is less about stellar food and more about providing a reasonably good taste of local cooking on your way into a show. A surprisingly good version of blackened fish is available, while the rest of the bill of fare contains workaday renditions of such local standards as shrimp rémoulade, gumbo, barbecued shrimp and crawfish etouffée. This is not a place to look for fine wines; it’s more of a beer and burger joint. In fact, the first-rate burger shares a pedigree with the more celebrated burger at Port of Call, which uses Snug Harbor’s kitchen to prep its own burgers. Desserts are limited to bread pudding and pecan pie. If you’ve come with music in mind, you might do well to order from the limited bar menu on the other side of the wall. After all, you don't come to Snug Harbor for the food, but to feed your soul with the music.
