|Cheesy Crawfish $8.99|
I ordered the smoked chicken and conecuh baked pasta as my entree. It consists of conecuh sausage, chicken and penne pasta in a cream sauce. The entire thing was covered with some cheese and herbs (tasted like parsley and cilantro) and baked. I thought it was a good mixture of meats and pasta; although some of the chicken were in really big chunks. The chicken didn't taste smoked to me; rather baked or pan fried. It was tasty.
My brother had one of the new burgers; the alligator crab cake burger. It came with one side and he got the gouda grits. This burger was pretty big and came dressed with a lettuce, tomato, red onion and a creole tasting mayonnaise. I had one bite of the burger and thought it was bland. When I tried some of the crab cake itself, I found that it was really heavy on the oregano. It completely overshadowed the delicate taste of the crab. I don't know if alligator was suppose to be a part of the crab cake or not but I didn't see or taste any. Maybe it's made with "alligator crab"; if there is such a thing. Towards the end, my brother decided to forego the bun and ate the crab cake itself. He noticed that the crab was not picked throughly for shells. He kept finding several pieces in each bite. The gouda grits was a good as I remembered it. But it quickly got cold because we were sitting under this huge ceiling fan. We left it primarily untouched because cold grits is just no good.
