Travels in the South

02 May

Oh my friends – mom/dad found the *best* local seafood restaurant.  It is called Fishers of Men and they are located at 1500 Mt Zion Road, Suite 20, Morrow.  They are open everyday except Sunday.

Mom/dad went there one Saturday night to check it out and they have since been back repeatedly.  Why?  Let me tell you why mom/dad like it so much.

The food is authentic.  As you’ve read on my blog, mom/dad like to travel and they like to eat.  They’ve eaten everywhere.  And this place can hold their own with some of the other restaurants they’ve been to all over the world.

The atmosphere is home. You go in, order and pay for your food.  Then you  find a comfy spot and wait smelling all of that deliciousness being created in the kitchen for your order.  There’s no rush to herd you out of the restaurant like some places do.  Everything is cooked fresh to order so it comes out sizzling hot.

And let me tell you one more thing.  You may go in as a stranger but you will leave as family.

When mom/dad went the first time, they ordered two of the whiting and shrimp dinners.  That’s four pieces of whiting and thirteen shrimp with fries.  They didn’t have any clue how much food they would get.  Look at all of that food!  And yes, dad said they snorted it all down – can you believe that?

There is a LOT of pictures below that mom/dad wanted to share with you – no they didn’t order everything at once – snorts with piggy laughter.  As I’ve said, they have been there many times in the past couple of weeks.

As they like to tell one of the owners Arlene, they are working their way through the menu.  Today, I wanted to share with you some of their fabulous food.  And, if you are in the area we highly suggest you try this place.

You will not regret it!  In fact, as mom/dad try more of their food, you might see them here again on Travels in the South.

.

Now try not to get too hungry looking at these gorgeous pictures!

In no particular order, the following pictures are:  scallops (sweet, succulent and flaky on the inside like they should be); crab sticks (we had to ask what these were too!  crab meat breaded and fried); oysters and catfish; whiting and shrimp; whiting and the best seafood salad and clams.  And let me add by saying there french fries are crispy and there onion rings are out of this world!!  Mom/dad have also tried their wonderful cole slaw and grits.  Yes grits are good for you!

        Oh no!! They run wild here in the south. In fact, my mom makes some of the best ones… I can confirm that too. She’s given me some. Snorts with piggy laughter XOXO – Bacon

        My wife has made them, but not often. It’s one of the things from my 9 months in the south that I actually miss.

        Sorry Bacon. I have never had grits that I liked. I hope we can still be friends.

        But of course. Although… I bet you would love mom’s grits. She fixes them up with shredded cheddar cheese and even puts crumbles of – gulps – bacon or sausage in them. Of course when I’m not around you know so I don’t have nightmares. XOXO – Bacon

      Mom/dad say this place is fantastic. They are going back tonight to try some other new stuff. Maybe – just maybe – they will bring me a piggy bag back home. I’ll keep my hooves crossed. XOXO – Bacon

    In terms of seafood, we have Red Lobster and Captain D’s (think Long John Silver’s). Before, we had The Whale Inn and Zuider Zee, both sit down places and overpriced fish. Zuider Zee was the cooler place since the outside had a Dutch windmill and the inside was like you were in Holland.

    O/T: Do you watch Kindred Spirits with Amy Bruni and Adam Berry? Last night (Tue night) was a Kindred Spirits marathon on DA Channel. Amy is the cutest ghost hunter on TV. It must be her red hair, lol.

      Ya’ll so need a really good seafood place there. We actually went back again last night to this place. It was so good! And the atmosphere just feels like you are at home – you can take your time and not feel rushed.

      YES – I watch Kindred Spirits too. Amy and Adam were actually on Ghost Hunters before they created this show together. Amy is so down to earth. I follow her on Facebook too.

        I remember Amy and Adam when they were on Ghost Hunters. I always thought they were underutilized on GH, especially Adam.

        YES I so agree!! I like their new show. I’m looking forward to seeing some new ones for sure. XOXO – Bacon

         

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
