Another Chance for Tricky Fish

Misty says…

at 12:15, we were the only customers inside...read our review to find out why

I was pleasantly surprised when I returned from my maternity leave and there was a deck on the front of the Tricky Fish.  If anyone remembers the steps that were on the front, they were a death trap (especially for the oddly clumsy, like me)!  The concrete slab steps towered in the front of the building (at least 5 or 6 feet tall) with no railing.  Of course, I have a trained eye for such dangerous settings as I am married to an attorney; but I am sure that everyone who dined there spotted it.  In fact, I am surprised that in the time that it took them to build the deck, that someone did not fall off, sue the Tricky Fish and put them out of business!

I took a glance at the menu and the mix of Cajun, Creole and Low Country cuisine sucked me right in the door.

I entered the moderate sized dining room and was greeted right away. I found my seat and surveyed the space. State flags and various pictures decorate the space. The dining room is far from cramped, but the low ceilings can be a little distracting. I tried to order my new favorite drink – an Arnold Palmer, but they only had canned lemonade so I just had iced tea for about $1. Continue reading
