We finally got to dine at a real "down home" restaurant. Took my granddaughters and wife up to the Kiln to get some good food, and it was good. But this is not the place for those who have lingering Covid concerns. The place was packed, as it tends to be, and we didn't witness a single individual sporting a mask. We made reservations for 5PM and arrived about 10 minutes early - we were seated promptly at 5PM. Despite being super busy we served immediately and attended to very well. The food was good, but the rice in the gumbo was problematic. . . .it seemed as though someone had added additional rice during the cooking process as some of the rice was mushy and some was almost crunchy. The gumbo itself was almost perfect the roux right on point not too blond - not burned. One of my grandaughters opted for a Sirloin Steak instead of seafood. It was just slightly overcooked but still made a very good meal for her. The rest of us had seafood . . . fried shrimp and oysters were very good. Catfish and Redfish even better. Stuffed crab was wonderful as was the crawfish pie. Wonderful place for locals and even worth the trip as a destination restaurant if your expectations are realistic.
