Louis's at Sanford's
Some outstanding food but...I had heard a number of great things about Louis and most of the food did not disappoint! The Angels on Horseback (oyster wrapped in bacon on toast) was outstanding as was the Lobster Pot Pie. The "Southern Pate" (pimento cheese of course!) was another wonderful find. They have an extremely impressive wine list, better than I have seen in many upscale restaurants and very reasonably priced. They also have a very well stocked bar with some hard to find bourbons. No problem with the service at all. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars was a disappointing Shrimp and Grits (too salty, the grits were lost in the cream sauce) and standard shoestring fries (I expected better then that). Overall, would go back without a second thought.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely not a calabash buffetGrilled scallops over shrimp hash was well executed but slightly greasy, needed a green vegetable to counter the fried potatoes and mustard butter. Highly recommend outdoor seating, which shows signs of recent expansion. Mostly empty at 6:30 on a weeknight. Waitress was attentive.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMKitchen was very slow. OurKitchen was very slow. Our poor waitress had to deal with it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was simple, but excellent,Dinner was simple, but excellent, as you would expect from Louis Osteen. Delicious shaved brussels sprout salad, flounder done to perfection, and good unobtrusive service. What more could you ask for?
We will definitely return whenever we are in the area.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
