Quality Seafood

5621 Airport Blvd., 454-5827

Monday-Saturday, 10am-6:45pm

The small cafe in this retail seafood emporium could be one of the best-kept secrets in town. Where could the fish possibly be any fresher, except maybe the coast? The turtle soup, gumbo, and oyster po-boys are just divine, and the fried fish dinners, catfish included, are wonderful, too. Food prepared to eat-in or takeout.
