We’re craving crustaceans, so we go for shrimp and grits ($22) and crab cakes ($18). For the former, we opt for blackened shrimp and find them reasonably well-seasoned and not overdone. There’s plenty skewered atop the massive bowl of grits, but the blue crab sauce tastes like under-seasoned gravy, not helped by the clumpy, under-seasoned grits. The crab cakes satisfy with meatiness, but they’re under that same creamy-bland blue crab sauce, though garlic rice satisfies with allium delight. But when we’re walking out with a bill that breaks $50 with tip for two entrées without appetizers or drinks, we expect better.
