Most delicious seafood restaurant?

Sarah1083 Jul 14, 2011 08:17 AM

Have a few friends coming in town this weekend from Atlanta and their two food requests are good seafood and poboys. What restaurant do you think serves up the most delicious seafood? Looking for something in the $20-30 entree range, though a little higher would be fine. I'm concerned less with the ambiance and service and more with pure food ratings.

And while we're on the topic, what's poboy do you always take visitors to try? I'm partial to Parkway, but what do you think is the most consistently good example?

    Nearly every restaurant has seafood selections. Are you looking for a particular dish, local flavor or seafood in general? I would pull up some menus from restaurants you like, then let your guests decide.

    Parkway would probably be my choice, unless you want oyster po boys (Bozos) .

      As far as poboys, depends on what kind. IMO R&O's has the best roast beef, Parkway a close second, but that's just me. Seafood poboys I can't comment on as I don't eat seafood poboys. Much prefer my oysters raw and shrimp boiled.

        for poboys, i like getting one shrimp and one RB at Parkway, and splitting em w/ my guests.

          Is Johnny's still good for poboys? I have it on my list to try in 2 weeks. I like Parkway but was wanting to try Mahoney's and found it it's not that great so I put Johnny's on the list.

          For seafood, my favorite shrimp are the bbq shrimp at Mr. B's. In fact, it's my favorite dish in any restaurant anywhere. Favorite oysters are the chargrilled oysters at Drago's in Metairie.
