Our Holiday Take Home Menu is available again this year and includes entrees such as fried turkeys, smoked turkeys, and smoked Boston Butt and beef brisket, desserts made from scratch, plus traditional sides highlighting a taste of fresh local seafood available this time of year, including crab, shrimp, crawfish and oysters. and desserts prepared from scratch.

One of our favorite dishes on the Take Home Menu is our Shrimp & Crab Stuffed Mirlitons. Mirliton, pronounced Mella-ton, originated in Central America and are also referred to as vegetable pears and chayote squash. They have a delicate flavor and can be prepared the same way as a summer squash.
Our take on the classic dish is always a crowd pleaser. You can order it from us today, or make it yourself using our holiday recipe!
