Appetizers/Sides

Many of our appetizers and sides could be interchanged. For example, cheddar biscuits are a perfect appetizer or side for any seafood meal. Because of this common crossover, you’ll find both here. Appetizers are usually great when you have a crowd since they are quick to make and easy to eat. And, of course, sides can help complete a meal.
