Superior Seafood & Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: Superior Seafood stays true to using not only Gulf seafood, but as many products indigenous to Louisiana as possible. Even the décor keeps that faith as many elements are items salvaged from old local structures. The menu begins with traditional seafood appetizers, including crab cakes, crawfish cornbread, and crab-stuffed mushrooms. Entrées range from crawfish etouffée and pan-seared Gulf fish to less traditional dishes such as brochettes of Gulf shrimp and andouille sausage with Monterey jack cheese. Cocktails are front and center, served from a 32-foot zinc bar. Desserts are predictable for a seafood house (bread pudding, carrot cake), with some unreasonably high in price. Speaking of prices, the product is generally overpriced. A dozen oysters on the half shell come in at a whopping $15 at both lunch and dinner, while a regular fried shrimp po' boy costs $16 at dinner, although it’s just $11 at lunch; one may order a half sandwich at either service for less money. The wine list is quite limited but well-thought-out to accompany the seafood-heavy menu.
