ADDISON – Now that Mardi Gras is over, that doesn’t mean the crawfish cravings have dwindled. For that reason, folks are packing into Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse.

This Dallas staple has been around since1988. The man behind the plan? Lafayette Louisiana native Nathan Peck --who left working at a Houston seafood spot – to start one of his own.

But why Dallas?

"This location. When I drove up in the parking lot, she whispered my name,” Peck said.

And the rest is history. With a menu full of seafood, where do you even start?

"When people go to the restaurant, they want something recommended to them,” Peck said. “I said baby, everything is good. Just order what you like to eat."

From freshly prepared fish to oyster, fried catfish, shrimp and gumbo. Oh, and the crawfish. Who can turn down crawfish? Some folks even order steak.

But it doesn’t just stop at the food. Chew on This, Nate’s has live blue’s music on Sunday nights – no cover!

"The blues talks to my soul,” Peck said.

Music and mudbugs? That's what we call a magical cajun combo!
