Dinner entrees include an assortment of home-cooked specials. There's lots of seafood - blackened salmon, grouper and mahi-mahi served on a platter, as well as your choice of shrimp, catfish or oysters cooked to order any way you like them. There's also Shrimp Creole, a fine shrimp or crawfish Etouffee, and as one might expect, tasty red beans and rice.
They're all good, but my favorite Cajun Yard Dog dinner is the meatloaf. It's done up Cajun style - a mix of beef and pork topped with a tomato gravy and served, as are the seafood platters, with two sides.
Sides, just to name a few, include wonderfully creamy grits, Southern smothered cabbage, crispy fried okra, chunky smashed potatoes and the best fried green tomatoes on the south side.
Po' boys are on both the dinner and lunch menus. This is the classic Cajun sandwich featuring fried oysters, shrimp or catfish, as well as any of the blackened seafoods, on a toasted baguette with lettuce and tomato, dressed with a delicious rémoulade and served with fries on the side.
Try the bread pudding, key lime pound cake or the pecan pie - in fact, go to dinner with friends and try them all. You'll be glad you did.
