    Hard to say... They'e all so different! Four I enjoy are Great Southern, Grayton Seafood, Chanticleer, and Hurricane.

    Now that's a good question!

    Of course Chef Jim Shirley's grits are legendary at Great Southern and The Bay.

    Would love to hear other opinions...

    My opinion is this thread is making me hungry. There is almost nothing better than shrimp and grits in general.

    There's a new Scallop and Grits I'm dying to try at Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House in Baytowne.

    I'm from Charleston, SC, so my first suggestion is to go there for shrimp and grits.

    However, if that isn't a choice, go to The Bay and get the Faux Ya Ya.

    Great Southern's are good! The Faux Ya Ya at the Bay is good but is too rich for me or there is something in it that my innards don't like, not sure which. Hurricane's are good too. And if you are on Panama City Beach, Salty Sue's in phenomenal. Hint: get the small one.

    My only requirement, and this can make it or break it with me, is that the tails must be off the shrimp before it comes to my table. I do not like cutting the tails and that yummy little section of meat off, and I certainly do not like digging in my food to peel them off by hand. And NO, you are not supposed to eat the tails!

    Same here. The tails are too annoying.

    Just a follow-up...we went to AJ's In Grayton Saturday night. Listened to CRB accoustic in the front courtyard and I haf the Grouper n Grits. It was fabulous! Silky creamy grits with fresh asparagus Spears and a huge piece of grouper that was perfectly cooked. The serving was huge. I wound up taking part of it home. Warmed it up Sunday morning and topped it off with an over medium egg. It was still as fantastic! Highly recommend!
