B's Cracklin: South side BBQ
High quality brisket perfect in every way. Dipping sauce was a perfect match. The Mac&Cheese was very good, plenty of cheesy flavor. The cornbread Hoecake ( Johnny Cake ) was not to my taste nor was the home made slaw ( not enough flavor in either). Next time I'll try the ribs with M&C but with the BBQ beans
Logans Road House: Steak House
Went with 2 others. 2 of us ordered the meatloaf. server returned & told us they had just run out. I ordered the 1/2 rack of ribs, sautéed mushrooms & mac&cheese. rack was good but could have used more sauce. shrooms where a bit salty but real not canned and the M&C was OK. Blue cheese salad dressing was very good. Service was very good. Fried fish I tasted and was very good, nice crunchy coating
Out Back Steak House: Aussie fun
I have eaten here many times over the years. The smaller, cheaper steaks are not as good as the larger or more expensive steaks. That's to be expected at any steak house. The steaks or lamb ribs cooked as requested. Sides are varied & good. The Bloomin Onion is not the best way to go for onion rings nor is the Caesar Salad and it's not a seafood place but they have descent fish entree's, I would recommend almost everything else.
Favorite Dish: The ribeye or porterhouse with blue cheese salad, baked potato & broccoli.
FAMOUS ASIAN RESTAURANT: JAPANESE - THAI - CHINESE
After settling into our motel room, it was dinner time. In the lobby there was a brochure for a nearby chinese restaurant FAMOUS ASIAN and it was just a short drive away on Dean Forrest Road. It was located in a brand new little strip mall.
It sure was a busy little place, as they seemed to do a lot of take-out and delivery. It was obviously a family business, as dad and son were doing the delivery and mom was answering the phone and doing the tables.
They offered Dinner Combinations, so that's what we had. Hans had sweet and sour chicken ($7.45) which came with Pork Fried Rice and Egg Roll. I had Chicken with Cashew Nuts ($7.45) and it also came with PorkFried Rice and Egg Roll.
First she came with the freshly cooked egg rolls which were delicious.
Then came my plate of chicken with Cashews, which was absolutely delicious and there was so much, that I took some back to the motel to heat up in the microwave for later that night.

Sweet Potatoes Kitchen: Sweet Tater is different
Again different preparation of food. Some like it some do not. Owned by Toucan Café. Example would be a BLT that has tarter sauce instead of mayo. Unusual but that's not to my taste. Mint on the beans.
Crab Shack: Great Oysters when in season at the Shack
Lots of local blue crab. Great steamed oysters. Remember even though snow crab & king crab, mussels are great tasting they are not from around theses parts. A little touristy with alligators to feed.
Favorite Dish: Steamed oysters or shrimp
Tangerine Fusion and Sushi Bar: Tangarine Asian
5 visited & all had a great meal. Above average presentation. Very romantic 1/2 circle side booths seperated by cloth curtains gives a bit of privacy. We had various Thai dishes $15 to $20. Specialty dishes $20 to $30
Carrabba's Italian Grill: Carrabba's is not my Italian
Red sauce is terrible to me, taste alot like Salsa. Sicilian style sauce, It then ruins the taste of other dished like the lazagna. Service was slow & the most expensive Carona I ever bought, even at airports, $5.50. Outragous
Pirates House Restaurant: Pirate
Lunch buffet. Waitress was very nice & attentive even though they where very busy. Had the buffet. Every thing was good Southern food. Fried chicken, fried flounder, about 5 vegies, 2 pasta dishes, rolls, taters, mac&cheese. Best was the Banana Pudding or as my nice calls it nana pudding. Needs alittle sprucing up but acceptable. Plenty of parking in the rear. Much better value & food then Paula Deans.
If you have children they can take a free ghost tour in the building.
Favorite Dish: Buffet fried chicken
Troy's Mediterranean: Mediterranean done right
Mediterranean food in a nice atmosphere. good service
Favorite Dish: Best meal is the lamb shank. The 2 seafood dishes mixed seafood stew & seafood fettucini are also excellent. Service was very good. App. the mussles, & calamari
Tubby's Tank House: Tubby's
Shrimp & Grits - really good. Broiled Salmon sandwich cooked perfectly with Mac & Cheese. Great atmosphere . Great service & fast considering how busy they where. Large meals.
Favorite Dish: Shrimp & Grits or the Crab Stew
All the other fried chicken restaurants wish they had chicken & sides like Popeyes. Never under cooked but never dry. I prefer the spicy but the regular is fine. The side are great especially the dirty rice.
Favorite Dish: Spicy wings with dirty rice & a biscuit.
Carlito's: Mexican service
Very much like a places in Mexico as far as decorations. Mostly the typical Mexican food. Shrimp has to much preservatives ( not local ) & I had a reaction to it that nobody would want. Every thing else was OK but not great including the fish taco's
Pad Thai: Thai food at it's best
Many Thai dishes at a reasonable price is what makes this restaurant different. Previous chef at another popular Thai restaurant using fresh ingredients insures genuine Thai food every time. You can have your dish at what ever heat level you like. Not hot at all to all the way to Thai hot.
Favorite Dish: Seafood in basil garlic sauce just below Thai hot. Pad Kee Mao
HaHot: Many combinations to choice from
1st you get a bowl that you put your protein in ( almost to the top ) with many choices including pork bacon, sausage sirloin steak, shrimp, bay scallops, squid, chicken, faux crab & a few others. then you place a paper provided to separate your vegies ( about 16 kinds ) mushrooms, cabbage, red onions, white onions, broccoli, and more. Then you put spices in a bowl, then sauces in another small bowl ( about 12 kinds including Thai peanut, spicy Thai, teriyaki, garlic, ginger & others. All of this cooked & place in a bowl with either rice, fried rice or 6 different kinds of noodles.
Favorite Dish: Pork with various vegies, spicy Thai sauce. It was only $8.95 plus drink & was so full I did not really need dinner that night. I managed to shove down a cookie or 2. The menu gives suggestions on what mixtures to add to your bowl. They also have a regular menu & sushi.
