When it comes to food, I’m definitely a meat and potatoes kind of girl. Don’t get me wrong – I love pretty much all food (except for celery!), and I’ve definitely been known to order a seafood dish from time to time, but most of the time, I’ll choose steak over salmon. And I’ll choose bacon over…well, I’ll choose bacon over just about everything. 😉
So it’s quite surprising that Peacemaker Lobster & Crab was at the top of my foodie to-do list (does anyone else have a foodie to-do list? Just me? Okay…). I heard so many good things about this place, and I just had to try it!
I had a couple of friends that were more than willing to join me. 🙂
Hi Debby and Drew! Debby is a new friend, and I feel like Drew has been on the blog so many times he doesn’t need an introduction! They’re both great. 🙂
It was a pretty crowded night, so while we waited for a table to open up, we plopped ourselves down at the bar.
And I did what I do best; I scoured the cocktail menu…
and I ordered a drink!
This is the Louie. It contains vodka, ginger liquor, lemon juice, cucumber juice, and a cayenne and salted rim.
I’m not a huge fan of vodka, but the ginger liquor drew me in, so I took a chance.
And it was gooooood! It was a light and refreshing drink, and all of the flavors melded together perfectly. The cucumber flavor was very pronounced, but it was a good thing!
It wasn’t long before a table opened up. Let’s move on to the good stuff, shall we?
Peacemaker has a lot of goodies on their menu. All kinds of rolls (lobster, crab, clam), boils (lobster, shrimp, crab), poorboys (catfish, smoked brisket, pork link, sweet potato), and…salad?
If you’re one of those people that orders salads at restaurants, will you please contact me and tell me why? I can’t imagine looking through a menu with all kinds of glorious options and settling on a salad instead. To each their own, I guess! 🙂
Anyway, everything on the menu sounded good, and it was hard for me to make a decision! So many good food options to choose from – such a hard life, right? #firstworldproblems
We were all starving, so we ordered some peel & eat shrimp to tide us over while we decided on entrees.
These were so good! I loved the cocktail sauce. It was a little sweet, which was interesting…but it worked!
After demolishing the shrimp, we were finally ready to order. I had heard so many good things about Peacemaker’s lobster roll, so I had to go with that.
I ordered mine Connecticut Style (warm, with butter). I also ordered a side of fries. I know, I know…fries? How boring of me. I guess I shouldn’t make fun of people that order salads, eh?
Debby also ordered the lobster roll, and Drew ended up going with the pork link. They are also a lot less boring than I am, and the sides they ordered proved that point; they each ordered hush puppies, and Drew also ordered a side of fried green tomatoes.
The hush puppies were good, and the fried green tomatoes were great! I forgot how much I love those things.
After sucking down my Louie, I needed wanted something else to drink. Aside from yummy cocktails, Peacemaker also has a pretty good beer list!
I went with the Sante Fe Happy Camper IPA.
It made me a happy camper. 🙂
Before long, our entrees came out. Check out my lobster roll!
I’m going to lick the screen right now. Don’t judge me. Why am I telling y’all this? (And why do I still say y’all?)
My fries looked fantastic, too.
Not only did my food look amazing, it tasted amazing. The lobster roll was delicious; the roll itself was soft and warm, and the huge chunks of lobster made me happy. It took away some of the sting of paying $24 for a sandwich. Just let that sink in for a bit, guys. You only live once, though…right?
As for the fries? They were good, too! They weren’t anything special, but they were just what I wanted, and they hit the spot.
Drew’s pork roll looked awesome:
I stole a bite and it really was awesome. Super flavorful and it even had a bit of a kick to it!
Overall, my experience at Peacemaker was pretty good! Nothing really blew my mind, but it was a solid meal. If you’re in the area, you should stop by!
See you next week!
