Review of Cajun Greek Restaurant

We are guilty of sticking to old familiar places in our recent visits to the Island, but today we ventured out to a restaurant we haven't visited before: Cajun Greek on 61st street, which was recommended by a friend of Mike's.

Dodging the orange construction cones made accessibility a bit tricky but we found the parking lot behind the restaurant had plenty of room. Cajun Greek appears to be a favorite with locals. The decor is Nautical Roadhouse--nothing fancy. It's definitely come as you are. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful and the service was quick and efficient.

We are out of crawfish season which is one of the restaurant's specialties and also oyster season is over. When it comes to oysters and crawfish I stick to the seasons so since it is crab season now
I tried the crab cakes on the theory that crab cakes are a test of a restaurant's commitment to good seafood. These did not disappoint--full of lump crab with almost no filler and a knockout chipotle mayonnaise. Mike had the fried shrimp and although he said they weren't quite as good as the ones at Gaido's (his standard of great fried shrimp) they were still very good.

The menu is mostly seafood with a few Greek themed offerings such as pita, olives and feta appetizers or "Greek hamburgers" which have feta and are made of ground beef rather than ground lamb. So on the whole I'd say its more Cajun Gulf than Greek.

Mike pronounced it worth a second visit, so I recommend it to my friends looking for good seafood in Galveston!
