In Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, there is a restaurant called Stinky‘s, which serves Cajun style seafood. We have attempted to eat there multiple times, but the wait has always been one to two hours. It’s a very popular restaurant! This time, we were able to get a table by arriving at 4:30 on a Monday. Not a great time for most people to eat dinner, but it works pretty well when you have a toddler who goes to bed early.
Stinky‘s has a lot of unique seafood options, but the one that stuck out to Mr. Handsome was crawfish pie. He was in the mood to try something new, so he ordered it and found it to be delicious. Even I took a bite and liked it, although it was definitely on the spicy side for me.
For my meal, I went with a safer option–grilled grouper with potatoes sautéed in garlic. Little buddy had fried catfish, which he loved.
After dinner, we walked out on the pier behind the restaurant. In the brackish water, we saw a bunch of turtles, both soft shell and hard shell. Little Buddy enjoyed watching some other kids feed them.
Are any of you blog readers brave enough to try crawfish pie?
Stay tuned for our big announcement, coming Friday at 7pm Central.
