Shrimp Creole

Shrimp Creole

A New Orleans original! True comfort food for any Cajun and a zesty family favorite of Bay County Residents, Sue’s version has a spicy bite, but maintains acceptable boundaries… you know, like Sue. Anyway, we can’t tell you exactly what’s in it, it’s just that good!

Shrimp J Michael

Shrimp J Michael

Thick and creamy with a slight kick, just enough to keep you coming back for more. Sue’s Shrimp J. Michael’s is tangy, with a touch of curry in a secret sauce filled with a generous portion of shrimp, mushrooms, bell peppers and green onions served alongside a bed of white rice and garlic bread. M’mm Good!

This is a great local place. The service is good and the food is great. The Roast Beef Supreme Sandwich is my favorite, but everything is great.

My family visited Sue's on 390 which has become a custom when visiting this area. The restaurant is moderate in size, with a great menu & a real local flavor with a great local following. 

My wife and I have been to Sue's multiple times since it first opened, and we have never been disappointed. Can't go wrong with their tomato soup. 

Wow - What a gem! Our large party was accommodated and seated within no time. The staff was very friendly and took the time to explain the specials (that are on a board where the entrance is). 

Was really fresh fast and priced right. Super Key Lime pie.
Julie was a super waitress!!!!!
Oysters were fresh, fish sandwich was great and hush puppies were home made.
