Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen pork cheek, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Cajun-influenced cuisine and drinks at Lulu's Bait Shack.
Lulu's Bait Shop serves an eclectic menu of Cajun and southern-style dishes in a laidback environment. Warm up hot sauce hatches with a bowl of homemade shrimp gumbo ($4.95) before adventuring into a plate piled with golden-fried bites of prime alligator tail ($8.95). Raw bar repasts feature half-pounds of peel-and-eat shrimp steamed in a house blend of spices ($9.95) or ice-cold oysters (market price). Freshly caught salmon, snapper, tilapia, and mahi filets sate Ahabian appetites with a customizable collection of toppings and rubs. Creole transplants looking for a taste of New Orleans can nostalgically nosh on a fried shrimp po' boy ($8.95) or crawfish étouffée made with a spicy roux and seasoned rice ($9.95).
Conduct fork forays into festive fare amid the lively atmosphere of the indoor dining area, or retire to the picturesque outdoor patio for scenic ocean views and liberal doses of fresh air.
