Snug Harbor Restaurant Review

: The biggest names in American jazz have played the stage at Snug Harbor, but on your way in, you may want to fortify yourself with some pretty decent food. 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. One surprise is a standout filet. Don't expect fine wines at Snug Harbor; 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 prepare 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. Snug Harbor's draw, after all, isn't the food; it's the music.
