What They’re Known for: The Square Grouper is known for their delicious food and their Creole and Cajun spices. Here, you can delve your fork deep into a rich, flavorful, and bubbly bowl of mac-and-cheese, or you can enjoy a classic po’ boy. Each po’ boy is made fresh from the bread to the meat, cheese, and toppings. Dinner is a great tasting of traditional New Orleans food including jambalaya, gumbo, and BBQ beef brisket.
What to Watch for: The atmosphere is quite happening on the weekends, and you should expect it to be busy. You can arrive early to ensure you get a seat, otherwise, you may have to wait a bit. In addition, the atmosphere can be quite loud as many people crowd in for late-night drinks and snacks. The atmosphere is family-friendly as well so you can bring the whole gang.
