    The food is good...it always is. My only complaint this time was the service. Neither of us got what we ordered - - - we both asked for the Po Boy platter (one with crawfish, the other with catfish). The waiter insisted that the Po Boy platter did NOT come with a Po Boy. I even pointed it out to the waiter on the menu and said "we want the Po Boy platter with a Po Boy. I got fried crawfish, hush puppies and fries. No Po Boy. My son got fried catfish, hush puppies and fries. Also, no Po Boy. We were in a hurry so we just ate and left. Again, the food was delicious. Just not what we ordered.

    This is a good restaurant, but I think we caught them on an off night. Shrimp po’boys, jambalaya, and gumbo were excellent. However, the crab bisque was lukewarm and the wine was under chilled. The lobster ravioli was strongly pitched. It was pretty good, but not $57 good. That’s my bad. It was marked “market price”, and I failed to ask what that was. Overall, the evening was a bit of a disappointment. We’ll be back because we have experienced this restaurant at its best, and it’s best is pretty good.

    Great service, but the dish I ordered was not that great. The fish was thin, small, way over cooked and chewy. The cost to quality ratio was way off, way way off. On a better note, he bread pudding was outstanding. Not sure I’d return though.

    My daughter is a budding foodie and has been asking to eat here for about a year, so I decided to surprise her for our foodie Friday Funday date tonight. The small, family-run environment was really nice, and Chef David Brittain was kind enough to pause in checking in with his customers so she could snag a picture with him. We were super blessed to be served by the stupendous Nicole, who was knowledgeable and eager to help us to find the best dishes to match our tastes for the evening. Each table had a bowl of chips to crunch on while we waited for our starter of Crawfish Mac and Cheese Stuffed Eggrolls. You have to try these! Nicole brought us a small sample of the tarter sauce, which was different from any tarter sauce I have tasted before. It was really delicious on the chips. We were also treated to a sampling of an off-the-menu item by Chef David. It was a poke bowl of sorts made with bluefin ahi tuna, coconut milk, coconut cream, red and green onions, cilantro, and serrano peppers. It was cool, creamy, and delicious. We are hoping to see it on the menu soon. For our entree, we shared Barramundi served over a cream corn and crawfish cake, finished with roasted red peppers, mushrooms, and delicious honey mustard, rosemary, and wine butter sauce. It was delicious and a huge portion that we shared and I still had enough leftover for my lunch today. Dessert was too difficult to choose, so we ordered 2! We shared the bread pudding with praline sauce and the chocolate lava cake. The praline sauce on the bread pudding was lovely, smooth, and creamy.. really nice, but the show stopper dessert was the rich, decadent, chocolatey goodness of the lava cake. It was served with vanilla ice cream that just really offset the warm, gooey chocolate cake. It came with two small cakes, so we planned to share one with family, but it was so good it didn't make it to them! We really enjoyed every part of our experience at Shilleci’s and recommend you go visit.

    We ordered the stuffed shrimp and these were perfectly prepared and cooked; Tasted great and plenty to eat. The calamari appetizer was not ready prior to meal so we cancelled it. We waited about 45min for our meal after ordering. We would dine here again.

    The food was creative and delicious. The waitstaff were all attentive but not overbearing. The presentation was also exceptional. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and could not have been more pleased with the experience. We enjoyed the seafood gumbo and the main dishes including the lobster ravioli. Please save room for the bread pudding or you will have missed out on a special treat.

    Schillieci’s has excellent service & very good food. The location has plenty of parking and being in Market Street there are things to do nearby before or afterwards. The restaurant itself is somewhat plain with a simple reception, and basic furniture & decor. Note that their website has no pictures of the venue, only of the different dishes served. Prices are noticeably high for the overall experience but not ridiculous. I was there for lunch and had a pasta dish with lots of crawfish that was very good and so filling I couldn’t finish it all that costs $27. With an iced tea and a generous but deserving tip it was $40, more than I usually spend for lunch. If you’re mainly focused on the caliber of the food & service it’s worth a visit. If you’re trying to impress someone with swanky ambience there are better choices. I plan to return occasionally as I want to try more of their dishes and I’m willing to pay a little extra for a better menu & very good service.

    Friendly attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Starters - Crab Bisque and Red Beans & Rice were off the charts delicious! Mains - Jambalaya shrimp dish was v good, well presented and v tasty... however the crawfish etouffee was surprisingly bland, well presented but lacked flavor which was surprising and a little disapointing. Would recommend another trip to try other dishes - overall a solid 7/10
