6414 W. Greenfield Ave.
The theme is Cajun, but the biggest draw is the multitude of seafood specials listed on the dinner menu. Start with oysters on the half shell or a half pound of crawfish tails, then choose from a broad menu of red snapper, king crab, prawns or a bouillabaisse loaded with assorted seafood. Creole-rubbed ribeye will appeal to carnivores. Portions are large and prices are modest, so be prepared to wait for a table. (J.B.) $$-$$$. CC. RS. FF. Handicap access. 778-2228
Maxie's Southern Comfort
6732 W. Fairview Ave.
Maxie's offers Southern food and hospitality. While much is Louisiana in inspiration starting with gumbo, jambalaya and po' boy sandwiches, there is Carolina pulled pork and shrimp with grits. Check out the fresh seafood and oysters on the half shell. Save room for the peach pie. (J.B.) $$-$$$. CC. FB. FF. Handicap access. 292-3969
