Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fresh seafood at Val’s Marina in Maurepas.
At Val’s Marina, cooks carry on a 50-year tradition of grilling and frying fresh seafood in a casual eatery ornamented with LSU memorabilia. Diners should remove cumbersome crusader helmets before slurping up shrimp-and-corn soup ($6.50+) and sinking teeth into fried-shrimp dinners, served with fries, salad, and hush puppies ($12.50). The juicy 14-ounce choice rib eye arrives tableside solo ($16.50) or paired with a side of crabmeat au gratin. Everyday favorites, such as the soft-shell crab topped with étouffée ($19), sate seafaring appetites and help expand stomachs to better hide family heirlooms.
