Captain Benny's Half Shell Oyster Bar

You can't go wrong with this little chain's fried catfish: magically greaseless, with a batter that does credit to cornmeal, it makes you happy to live on the Gulf Coast. If you are in the mood for oysters, they're available on the half-shell or baked. Shrimp is present in all imaginable ways: fried, grilled, crawfish style and more. In the mood for Cajun? Go for Benny's boudin balls or alligator prepared Cajun-fried style.
