In the Oscar-winning movie Forrest Gump, one of the title character's best pals, Bubba, lists more than 20 ways one can cook shrimp. Though the chefs at Fish Bone Grill—which is now celebrating 30 years in business—don’t cover them all, they come pretty close. The Fish Bone team tends to stick to a few staples—crab legs, catfish, and oysters in addition to shrimp—but there’s hardly a lack of variety on their menu. Patrons can order the fresh seafood in any number of ways, including golden fried, blackened, sautéed in a New Orleans–style stir-fry, mixed in an étouffée, or hidden inside a piñata. The chefs also incorporate additional fresh seafood, such as salmon, mahi-mahi, tilapia, sea scallops, and alaskan snow-crab legs into a few of their specialties, and they even throw in a few land-faring meals such as chicken-breast sandwiches and chicken tenders. Regardless of your order, the portions are always generous, encouraging you to grab a beer and stick around to enjoy the fun, vibrant atmosphere of this modern throwback to an old oyster bar.

Though its name and logo imply a particularity for oysters, Aw Shucks’ menu goes beyond that to feature a diverse range of seafood options. Patrons can order anything from tilapia tacos to the house-specialty fresh shrimp cocktail with avocado and serrano peppers, and distinctly Cajun options include po’ boys, whole catfish, and boiled shrimp. Oysters are of course available, and arrive iced on the half shell or served fried with french fries. Meals are complemented by pitchers of beer, wine coolers, and blended margaritas.
