4. Scat Cat’s Club (French Quarter)
In addition to the refreshing cocktails and tasty beers, guests relaxing at Scat Cat’s will be able to find a small selection of snack foods. Homestyle chicken and waffles with candied bacon, a Sassagoula crab dip, as well as Mardi Gras macaroni and cheese mixed with shrimp, Andouille sausage, and a cornbread crumble, plus savory crawfish étouffée accompanied with steamed rice and a zesty shellfish stew. Prices are reasonable, so there is no reason that you shouldn’t have more than one!
5. Boatwrights Dining Hall (Riverside)
The only table service restaurant at either resort, Boatwrights is only open for dinner and serves homestyle entrees with a Cajun-flair. To begin your meal, guests can enjoy delicious cornbread while choosing what appetizer or entrée to have. On the appetizer menu, you’ll find a crawfish bisque, barbecue shrimp, as well as a crawfish, shrimp, oyster, and okra mixture fried in cornmeal with a remoulade dipping sauce. On the dinner menu, guests can have catfish, prime rib, a grilled strip steak, jambalaya, pork tenderloin, shrimp and grits, as well as étouffée and ribs. You’ll be able to add-on some great enhancements to your meal — crawfish mac and cheese, fried okra, Southern greens, as well as red beans and rice!
You’ll find that the Port Orleans Resorts are a great value for guests looking for a thematic experience, but also for the amenities offered to guests. Guests will be able to enjoy all of the lounges, food courts, and restaurants regardless of where they are staying, but to get the full experience, we highly recommend you grab a room at either of these moderate resorts! Your stomach (and wallet) will thank you!
