Charlie's Creole Kitchen

Big Easy transplants the McGuinness clan opened Dodie's in 1989. They serve family-inspired recipes that are a gumbo blend of Cajun and New Orleans cuisine. Expect mudbugs and shrimp in all their permutations and several po-boy options, such as catfish, atop checkered tablecloths. It's got all that, plus families, surrounded by a mishmash of beer signs, crawfish decorations, sports games on big screens and N'Awlins art. If you're leery of that, call in your order for pick-up.
