Steamboat Bills – Lake Charles, Louisiana

Steamboat Bills seafood looks like it might be a tourist trap, but it’s not. We stopped here for an early lunch while driving through Lake Charles. I’m glad we stopped when we did, because by the time we left there was a line out the door.

I ordered the “Small Platter”, which was anything small. It came with catfish, fried shrimp, stuffed shrimp, stuffed crab, fries, and a roll. The catfish was delicately breaded very moist. The shrimp was fried into crispy popcorn nuggets. The stuffed shrimp and crab were both tasty and stuffed with moist breading. French fries were perfect. The roll was like a beignet without the sugar; soft on the inside with a delicate crust. There were so many other great Cajun items on the menu that I want to eat next time I pass through Lake Charles.
