We drove in from Granby for dinner wanting seafood and we were not disappointed. The red fish special was amazing and my husband enjoyed the Cajun cod. The wine was reasonably priced and the outdoor seating beautiful. Good service too!

Four of us pulled into Fontenot's Seafood and were seated outside on a lovely evening. We all ordered differently -- Shrimp Etouffee was excellent. Great appetizers; good wine. Recommend
