The fried shrimp here rival many of the "go-to" stops on the gulf. I'm not sure how many runs to the gulf the Lash's take, but they're doing it right. The food here is great. It's not "seafood trying to be seafood" it's the real deal fresh seafood, just cozily located on the backwater of the Tennessee River. My staple... More

We are staying at the Fisherman's Resort and walked over for dinner on a Thursday night. We had heard that they get busy early, so we were there by 5:30 and were seated promptly. Within 15 minutes, the place had a line forming for the "all you can eat frog legs" special. My husband got a platter that had an... More

Small and rustic, the setting is the backwater of the Tennessee River, in a vintage fish camp. Our go to item on the Lashes menu is the perfectly fried gulf shrimp. Do yourself a favor and order a dozen. We also enjoy the slaw and hushpuppies.

The menu claims all meals are cooked to order, not true. This time my grilled shrimp were luke warm and tough, indicating they had sat for a while after being cooked. Likewise with the hush puppies which were excellent last time. This time they were old. The cole slaw was still excellent, next time I'll get it as another side,... More

Wonderful, marvelous, outstanding, I could go on and on. The gumbo is as good as you will ever have. The seafood platter has a lot of everything. All the seafood is fresh from the coast. Shrimp is big and tasty. Popcorn shrimp and clam strips full of flavor. Service was great. We arrived at 4 and by the time we... More

This place has the best fried oysters. I can't even go to the gulf and find oysters this good. Their tartar sauce is out of this world. I'm in love with their seafood platter.

Yes, you have to go down a winding, bumpy road through the fisherman's resort to get to the restaurant, Lash's. We had to wait about 1/2 hour and the ac wasn't reaching the waiting room. We tried the chairs outside but they're under an ac vent, so inside was better. The ac was reaching the dining room, it was still... More

They bring on fresh shrimp a few times every week. Gumbo is great and orsters are good, They also have a store north of the damn to buy fresh shrimp gumbo and they steam your shrimp for free.

Very out of the way, hidden between a trailer park and creek, but well worth the search. Fried oysters freshest and best I've had in a long time. Blue cheese salad dressing is the best! Very quick service, but I understand that there can be a long wait if you aren't there by 5 pm.
