Our First Trip to Felix’s Fish Camp

We finally made our first, long-overdue trip to Felix’s Fish Camp on the Mobile Bay Causeway. It is one cool looking joint — reminds me a little of the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, SC from the outside.

“Rustic” is almost an understatement when describing the exterior. It’s rusty, weathered, and, well, almost unsightly when viewed from the outside. The palm trees and blue skies do help to brighten things up a bit!

The neon sign is sweet – especially when the letters light up one at a time!

After some debate, I opted for the massive Crab Cakes made with local Gulf crab meat and perched atop two fried green tomato slices. They were also accompanied with a couple of corn-laden hush puppies and some amazing dipping sauce. To our delight, it was “Comeback Sauce” – a concoction we first became familiar with when we resided in the great state of Mississippi. It’s rich, just a bit tart, and a tad chunky. How to describe it? Maybe a kicked up tartar sauce? It’s damn good … I CAN tell ya that!

My side dish was a Baby Lima and Cream Corn Succotash. Not too bad.

Apparently the crab cakes aren’t the only big thangs in L.A. (Lower AL).

    Amazing, wasn’t it. I think more than anything that her philosophy about life is something we should all adopt. If I can live that long and still be of use and still be enjoying what there is, then I hope God sees fit to let me be here. Come visit me at diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com. I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesday.

    Had a follow up visit today. The cream of crab soup was very good. Would have been even better with a splash of sherry. OK, does that make me a snob?

    The blackened Mahi Mahi was fresh and flaky. And as Adam Richman once said, “Once you go blackened, you’ll never go backened!”
