The place is located in Bush, Louisiana, which is somewhere north of Covington and south of Bogalusa. Talk about the boomies, but it's worth the drive. Just take LA-21 until you get there. South from Bogalusa, the House of Seafood is located just after 21 turns right and goes from four lanes to two. It will be on the left. Coming north from Covington, the restaurant will be on the right. If the two-lane highway you're on goes left to four lanes, you went too far.
Now I present ... the Buffet:
This is what you get for $21.95, almost a city block of food! And that doesn't include the salad bar, veggie bar, or desert bar. Don't worry, I took a photo of the desert bar.
Shrimp, Crabs, and Crawfish galore! The crabs are in season and are great. They are heavy to the lift. The legs pull off with the lump crabmeat still connected. For the shrimp and crawfish, make a sauce to spice them up before eating.
Oysters on the Half Shell:
Oysters on the half shell, that's industry's way of saying raw oysters. And these are big for a month without an "R". Those that don't know, in the old days, you only ate oysters in months from SeptembeR to MaRch. These look good, really good.
Self-Serve Seafood Platter:
Fried shrimp, fried oysters, fried calamari, stuffed shrimp, stuffed crabs, hushpuppies, etc.
Seafood Gumbo & Shrimp Creole:
The red stuff is shrimp creole, a New Orleans favorite. the brown stuff in the back is the seafood gumbo, a Louisiana diet mainstay.
This a Louisiana favorite ... fried frog legs. And they don't taste like chicken. They taste like frog legs and these frog legs are as good as any place in southeast Louisiana.
That's only part of the desert bar. The best stuff on the bar in my opinion are two dishes: the bread pudding and the peach cobbler. But there are a couple of chocolate dishes for the decadent.
