Ye Olde College Inn Restaurant Review: Operating continuously since 1933, Ye Olde College Inn still innovates and attract crowds. Big portions and reasonable prices keep it going, and a few more upscale items are available on the menu as well. Gargantuan onion rings, appropriately greasy burgers, and home-style hot plates are the leaders of the pack, while baked Gulf fish with crawfish is a lighter alternative. Fried green tomatoes and a shrimp rémoulade po' boy are worthy options, as is the highly original oyster, Havarti and bacon po’ boy. Pair a cold beer with your overstuffed sandwich. And if you thought you’d seen it all when it comes to desserts, how about a fried bread pudding po’ boy? Proprietor John Blancher also owns the bowling alley-music club Mid-City Lanes Rock’N’Bowl (located adjacent to the restaurant). Sometimes he offers free passes to the evening's show with the purchase of an entrée at College Inn, so dinner here can be just the start of a rocking evening. Be sure to visit the restaurant’s adjacent urban farm.
