Freshest Seafood In Lake Charles at Steamboat Bill's?
Steamboat Bill's is a local icon with three locations in Louisiana. We visited the Lakeshore drive establishment in Lake Charles. Lunch here can be busy because of the quality seafood offered. Businessmen, farmers, ranchers, office folks, locals and travelers in-the-know are all here ordering boiled, fried and stuffed shrimp, Po-boys, dinner platters, Cajun fried seafood, and my favorite the Shrimp or Crawfish Pistolette (pictured).
Unique to Louisiana cuisine the Pistolette is a roll stuffed with shrimp or crawfish (seasonal) either fried or baked, and covered in a savory sauce. These delicate little pastries are pillowy light and have that sweet and savory fresh seafood flavor that only local shrimp can offer. Oh my! Stick a fork in me I am done. They sell a great seasoning that makes a wonderful souvenir to take home too.
