I really really wanted to love this place. I love seafood, I love Forrest Gump and I love themed restaurants. But I just couldn't :(
The food was pretty dire, extremely overpriced and the portion was tiny which was shocking especially since this is an American establishment famous for their large meals.
I ordered the New Orleans shrimps with cajun spices and coconut rice. I got a small plate with rice partly hard inside but sticky like it was reheated in a microwave, about ten or eight little shrimps that were a bit hard too and practically tasteless, some tasteless garlic bread (without any spices) and all that was swimming is lightly spiced brown butter-like sauce. This dish was around £17! And then came a very watery cocktail, so watery I thought it was non-alcoholic only to discover later on in the menu that it had some rum in it, and it was £8. So the whole meal knocked me down about £26!! For a lumpy rice, a few shrimps and watery lemonade... Terrible
The only reason I gave them 2 stars is the interior design is great. You feel like you're dining on a verandah somewhere in Louisiana.
I hope they do something about the food and the portions, but unless I hear they improved I won't be back and will be discouraging friends from going. What a shame :(
