**** (4 stars)
I’ve always enjoyed the original Big Easy near Stoneybrook, so I was looking forward to this new location. It occupies the spot that was previously several failed Italian restaurants, and so far it seems much more successful. I was pleased to see they’ve fixed many of the lighting and layout problems of the previous occupants.
The food seems pretty much the same as at the other location. We enjoyed everything we tried, including the crab dip, seafood sampler appetizer, etoufee and cajun shrimp salad.
For non-Cajun enthusiasts there are also plenty of other choices.
We were originally seated next to an obnoxious woman and her bratty kids, so we moved outside to the delightful, large patio.
There’s a nice cocktail list.
Service was very good.
