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!

Licking my piggy lips right now my friends as I look at this treasure of food porn. Mom/dad went out last night on a date – which is another story in itself – snorts. But look at what they had for dinner – OMP! They went to this restaurant called Bay Breeze which is located in Lovejoy, Georgia. It’s known for their portions and wonderfully delightful food. Now, we are in the south and you know our motto – if you slow down too long, we will fry it 🙂
So mom/dad decided to split this ONE meal. Yes friends – that is ONE meal. Fried flounder, popcorn shrimp and Jumbo shrimp. What you don’t see under all of that is french fries and hush puppies. And mom said there was a side of slaw not in the picture. ALL THAT FOOD and it only cost like $13 bucks for everything. Awesome deal huh? And daddy said they had plenty.
Dear Bacon – This cold. This awful weather outside. This snow and ice. Make.it.go.away. I’m so ready for Spring. I go outside to do my business and I just can’t wait to get back inside to the heat. Help. Signed Passed Out Frozen
Dear Passed Out Frozen – Soon my little friend, very soon. I can almost smell Spring. I can hear the birds. I can see the flowers starting to come out to play. Hang in there little guy – it will be here soon. I can feel it in my piggy bones!
Dear Bacon – I think we got it wrong. See, we heard two fisherman talking about French kissing. They were describing it but I don’t think this what they meant. Do you? Signed Frenchie
Dear Frenchie – Okay my friends I had to ask daddy about this one because I had no clue as well. Daddy said that it may feel like you are swallowing the other one’s head if you don’t do it right. It’s more tongue action and less swallowing the head of your loved one. He kind of lost me after that. It sounded gross. Then I heard mom laughing at me because I said it was gross. Rolls piggy eyes. Humans are so weird. Just stay with regular kissing – best of luck!
Dear Bacon – Our human, he is weird. He thought it “would be so neat” to put our food in the middle of the pool full of water. Really human? This is funny? Really? Bacon you gotta help us to get even. Signed Pissed Off
Dear Pissed Off – What in the world?! This means WAR my friends. Do you hear me – W.A.R. Here’s what you do. There’s this fluffy white stuff the humans *have* to have in their litter box they call the bathroom. Gather it all. Every single last roll of the fluffy stuff. Then take it out back in the back yard and throw it in the pool with all of the water. Evil snorts. That’ll get them where it hurts. Trust me on this.
Dear Bacon – True love always finds a way. Whether it is across the world, the next state, the next city or the next stall. We are firm believers. Signed Love for Two
Dear Love for Two – That is so very sweet and special my friend. As I read it, rain of joyous tears came down my snout. So sweet – keep it alive my friends.
Dear Bacon – I’m keeping an eye on my brother. I just left him something and he should smell it in 3, 2, 1 – Barks with laughter. Signed SBD
Dear SBD – Oh dear piggy heavens. Don’t tell me SBD as in Silent But Deadly. Drops piggy head and shakes it. There’s always one in the group. WOW! It never gets old hearing about farts – snorts.
REMEMBER FRIENDS – We can’t have Dear Bacon issues without YOU. Keep your pictures and questions coming to me via email 🙂
OMP (Oh my piggy). I saw this on the internet and I *must* take notes.
The next time that mommy washes the fish tank that holds 007 and 007.5, I have to do this to them. I think it will be hilarious. It will scare them so much – snorts.
Perhaps I can get Mouse Girl and Hemi to help out. Can you imagine the looks on those poor fish faces? Snorts – Too funny!!
Happy Sunday my friends!
