I tried my first oyster at the creole cookery and it was amazing! The ambiance in the outdoor courtyard was exactly what we needed after a long travel day. Everything we tried was fantastic. They provided a kids menu with plenty of options.

Great Redfish especially topped with crab but get sauce on the side. Excellent historical setting with a ghost twist too. Have a drink in the courtyard but don't be surprised that not one picture came out. Easy to get to from the trolley.

Great service!! Happy special is great too from 3-6 with 75 cent raw oysters or 1.25 char grilled! Sit at the bar if you want to see oysters shucked. Neat atmosphere and great food and drinks!
