      Also in walking distance is Creolina's for good Cajun-Creole food. We went there before Spamalot last fall and had a very good meal. Find their menu here - http://snipurl.com/creolinas

        I understand Creolina's has closed. We usually go to Himmarshee before a show because they always are very cooperative when they know you have a time consideration. Oh, and the food is good, too!

            If you want something simple like a good steak, check out the RIver House. Its is like 500 feet from the theater, you can park your car with valet and leave it though the show (only like 6 bucks). Really pretty setting on the river with outside and big windows. Super romantic.
