Last year a seafood restaurant opened in the former east side Granite City space at 2255 N. Webb Road called Blue Hook Cajun Seafood & Bar. We stopped by during their opening and had an enjoyable and delicious experience. The only problem was my extended family didn’t get to go and kept pushing me to go back. I’m rarely one to ever say no to a family meal so this time I was joined by parents and siblings as we revisited Blue Hook.

Before we get into the review, I might as well talk about the hot topic that was so hotly debated when they first opened. While they go by the name of Blue Hook Cajun Seafood & Bar, it’s probably not what most people think of when they see Cajun. They do offer some dishes that many are familiar with, but with a different spin. If you can get over the whole definition of what true “Cajun” is and accept the fact people do things differently, then this just might be the restaurant for you.
A big focus of what Blue Hook does is their seafood combos. They have everything from shrimp to crawfish to snow crab legs to king crab legs and more. I’d wager to say it’s the most popular thing there.
There was a huge group of nine that all enjoyed a variety of different dishes. Much of my intention was having a good time instead of blogging, but I did manage to get some pictures:
We tried oysters, po boys, Cajun nachos, crab cakes, and many of their combos. I had the oysters along with a seafood combo consisting of snow crabs, crawfish and shrimp. The food came out hot and fresh in good portion sizes. I wasn’t served dinky little shrimp or crawfish. It was a seafood feast that satisfied every craving I had. The beauty of their combos is also picking your level of heat and sauce. You can have it as mild as needed or turn up the heat. I’m a big fan of their Blue Hook’s All-In done medium. It was a flavorful blend that offered the right amount of heat for me.
So, now that I’ve gone with my friends and then my family, who else do I need to take out to Blue Hook?
