“Swamp Shack is right”

I have to agree, this place has hit “River-side-swamp-shack” to a Tee. I don’t think Martha could have done better than they did, but mind you the food is good.
Do get there early on weekdays since they close at 8pm, and the staff does not seem too accommodating when you come in at 7:30, as the first thing out of her mouth was “we close in 15 min”. (I was told they close in 30 min at 7:10pm).
The food is good, damn good Cajun. Etouffee was awesome. The gumbo I would skip on, just did not have that scald that it needed.
The Muffaletta’s were good and they have a Veggie one as well.
The decor was just plain odd. Mostly wall to wall shelves with different kinds of Cajun Hot Sauces. Ball burner this, tally-scalder that, hot as hell what-not, and so on.
I did notice by they front door they had Chicory Coffee Blend, this is not something you find much outside of Louisiana.
Strange place this swamp shack be.
