GREG EATS OUT: The Crab Barrack, Anniston

Located where a Ruby Tuesday once was, the Crab Barrack is one of Anniston's new restaurants. (Stephen Gross / The Anniston Star)

We recently tried The Crab Barrack, the new seafood restaurant in the old Ruby Tuesday building in Anniston. First of all, let me say that I am excited that someone decided to open a restaurant there. We need more dining options in that area.

I love most all kinds of seafood, and this restaurant provides an extensive menu. I ordered the fried shrimp basket, which comes with eight fried shrimp and just one side item, Cajun fries. I also added a small side of cole slaw. The shrimp was very good, and the slaw was fair. It had a unique flavor that I was not familiar with. I was disappointed the restaurant did not serve hush puppies and slaw with the basket. You have to order an appetizer of 10 hushpuppies if you want them with your meal.
