Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Hook an edible option with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Creole fare at Sammy's Seafood Restaurant.

Located in the heart of the French Quarter on Bourbon Street, Sammy's Seafood offers authentic Louisianan seafood and delectable Creole cuisine. Their menu provides a host of items suitable both for the fledgling Creole consumer and the bayou-born native. Guests start to calibrate taste buds to Creole flavor with the fried alligator ($6.90) or a half-dozen oysters ($7.95), before moving on to fried soft-shell crab, distinguishable from other crabs by its extensive use of moisturizer, which comes with french-fried potatoes and coleslaw ($16.90). The steak and shrimp combines land and sea in a street fight of USDA-prime rib-eye steak cooked to order and arriving adjacent to rumble-ready shrimp blackened, fried, or broiled ($25.95). Classics make their way onto the menu in the form of lobster tail ($19.95) and traditional, rich crawfish étouffée ($14.75), made with fresh crawfish tails sautéed in spicy dark Cajun sauce, both served with rice and a salad.

Fuel postdinner Bourbon Street adventures with Sammy's frozen daiquiris made with fresh fruit ($6), wines ($3.50 a glass), and beers ($3 draft, bottles from $3.50). Customers can sip drinks while taking in the patio's excellent view of Bourbon Street and its scintillating goings-on or dine indoors by the fireplace and chandeliered ceilings for cozier confines.

Sammy's Seafood Restaurant

Sammy's Seafood Restaurant sits at the center of the French Quarter, surrounded by 18th-century buildings and iron balconies that personify the district. A candy-stripe awning shields a dining patio, filtering sunrays and airborne Mardi Gras beads while offering a view of Bourbon Street's perennial foot traffic. In this quaint setting, chefs prepare fried alligator and crawfish étoufée, just two of the seafood dishes on the creole-inspired menu. Blackened, fried, and heavily spiced dishes comprise the majority of options, hearkening Cajun preparation techniques. Patrons who dine indoors find themselves in a cozy dining room flanked by wooden walls and a brick fireplace.
