They have changed and that's a good thing.
I visited the restaurant for a business lunch when it reopened and was pleasantly surprised. The menu has been revamped and the atmosphere has changed. The food choices are good.
Third Ward smokehouse featuring Southern Creole style BBQ, steaks and seafood.. In Short The tidy Third Ward eatery named for basketball superstar Clyde Drexler was a mainstay of the local barbecue scene and has re-invented itself as a quality smoke house and seafood restaurant. The decor is traditional and comfortable, making it equally appealing for a business lunch or a dinner date. Menu favorites include smoked chicken, grilled chicken breast, home-style ribs, grilled rib eye, smoked salmon, barbecue brisket, spare ribs, sausage links, catfish po-boys and shrimp po-boys.
