The Cypress Waters development is centered around a 300-acre lake, which gives residents and visitors plenty of opportunities to hangout by the water. For starters, head to the casual Flying Fish for oysters, crab, catfish baskets, grilled salmon and trout, po’boys, and gumbo, all washed down with cold beers.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
Seafood doesn’t have to be an expensive meal out—or a stuffy experience. Walk up to the counter at one of several locations of this fast-casual eatery for fried seafood baskets with less-common proteins such as alligator and frog legs. You can practically create your own favorite po’boys, jambalaya, gumbo, and grilled options aplenty from the large selection of seafood. (Pro tip: Show up on Wednesdays for all-you-can-eat catfish or Sundays for dollar oysters and you can really get bang on a budget.)
