Like the other two restaurants of the same owners, Back Bay and Salute, Lookout 49 is as popular a dining spot as it is a favorite "watering hole."

I’ve been here several times and enjoyed their blackened amberjack, which was fresh and served with a tasty sautéed vegetable medley of squash, broccoli and green beans.

Good dining here depends on what you order.

In a recent group lunch, I ordered blackened redfish with a Florentine topping and their signature vegetable medley. The redfish wasn’t great, perhaps not fresh and the blackening spices were bland. Fellow diners ordered fettuccini with shrimp or crawfish, or blackened chicken and Jambalaya. Thumbs up for the fettuccini and crawfish, thumbs down for the fettuccine and shrimp because it was too watery and thumbs up for the chicken and jambalaya - mixed reviews indeed.

Lookout 49 is casual, often crowded at night, also family friendly and inexpensive - definitely a good value. Service: good. © 2009
