    Have the Black Jack char grilled oysters for an appetizer they are exquisite, I also had the Blackened salmon cooked medium, it was probably the best I've had, melt in your mouth delicious

    Go for a fried shrimp poboy or the New Orleans style BBQ shrimp, which is served over a fried grit cake. The selection of craft beer seems endless. Join Chimes Beer U!

    Boudin balls and the crawfish étouffée is awesome! They have a huge draft and bottled beer list, you can see their list on beermenu.com too!

    The key differentiator between this location and the one on campus is Chimes East has chargrilled oysters -- which alone are worth the drive out east.

    Darn good food in a beautiful building with great service and extremely reasonable prices. Don't forget to ask for the beer menu!

    The red beans and rice with sausage is always tasty and filling. I think the best bang for your buck. The fried catfish platter is a lot of good food too for a decent price.

    Try the cheese fries, fried alligator, and seafood pasta. This place has a great selection of beer. A local favorite.

    I'm obsessed with the chargrilled oysters here. Also, the Barney. It's Abita Purple Haze and Andygator. Order it and thank me later!

    The turkey croissant and burger are so good. Of course, the seafood is good but who would have thought about sandwiches.

    Can't go wrong with anything you order! My personal fave is the crabcake sandwich...oh, and the stuffed shrimp, shrimp and corn soup...etc.

    The suburbia edition of the original Chimes. Not as good of an atmosphere but the wicked good food and beer selection hit the mark.

    The fried catfish was perfectly executed, and it paired excellently with the crawfish etouffee.

    Obviously the beer selection is among the best in town. But what really impresses me is the boudin omelet at Sunday brunch.

    The atmosphere was great, when my order was taken the waiter didn't write down my order he said he had it memorized, when it finally came it was all wrong. He never gave me his name.
