Cape St George Lighthouse
Boss Oyster Seafood
Super Crisp On The Outside, Fresh On The Inside
Crispy & Light
The crisp exterior was father light. There was absolutely nothing heavy or greasy about these shrimp. They were a pleasure to eat. Just like that, no condiment was needed.
Plump, Fresh, & Sweet
Boss Oysters, Fried
The oysters were equally divine.
(This visit was in May. Oyster season is over for the summer in Apalachicola Bay.)
Toucan’s Restaurant & Sports Bar
This view was fine.
But, this view was even better.
Hello, Other Road Trips:
We only grabbed one bar? Mistake.
Note To Self: Next time, take the whole box of Buckeye Bars!
Ok, we probably won’t take whole box.
When you add peanut butter to a chocolate bar, it becomes a meal.
This bar just barely made it out of the parking lot.
The 5 Layer Bar was equally delicious.
Sausage & Peppers Pizza
The chain restaurants dominate (by far) in Lake City, Florida. And, for a fast casual chain, this wasn’t bad at all. If we’re in the area, we’d return.
1000 Degrees Pizza
Did we stumble into an ugly food contest?
While that might appear to be the case, we proudly confess to loving this meal all the same. The crab cakes (two rounds of almost pure jumbo lump crab) were everything that you could want. The crab was perfectly sweet and tender in that incredibly fresh way that you want a crab cake to be. The taste of browned butter kissed the golden edges. The aged tenderloin had great flavor. And, it was meltingly tender.
We must give the prize of ugliest of the ugly to the bleu cheese hash. Still, delicious. It was beyond rich and loaded with bleu cheese. (We’ll be stealing this idea for our next home made brunch. Those potatoes are clearly begging to be paired with a batch of custard-y scrambled eggs.)
If we’re in the area again, we’d happily return.
Big Fish Restaurant
Two Frozen Adult-Style Beverages
First things first, we need an icy beverage. It’s HOT out there!
The fried fish (thick, tender and flaky cod fillets, we think?) and the gumbo disappeared first. If we return, we’d both opt for the fried fish dinners with gumbo. Sea -N- Suds, it’s right on the beach. So, if we return to Gulf Shores, there will be another visit. (Another restaurant and bar on the beach? Pink Pony Pub)
Sea N Suds
Two sites, both deep dive sites with excellent visibility on all dives (the barge & the tug)
Shrimp Étouffée Platter
Shrimp ‘N Grits
Thankfully, this dish doesn’t mangle a foreign language (see below). But, it is served with an absolutely puzzling side dish of cole slaw. Please, don’t ask us to explain the cole slaw. We can’t. And, quite frankly, we didn’t enjoy the way it sat there mocking us as we ate our staggeringly mediocre (and excessively salty) meal.
This was a great big world of “eh”. These pictures purely serve as a reminder.
Note the absence of one accent mark and the location of the second.
This was clearly an omen.
