Famous Dishes

Seafood-filled mushroom caps


Named for a 19th century riverboat captain known for his practical jokes and beer-drinking pet pig, Simp McGhee's serves a variety of Cajun-inspired seafood and beef dishes in a quaint, elegant atmosphere. The restaurant's signature dish, mushroom caps, makes a great appetizer to share, but you'll want to keep them all to yourself. Tender mushroom caps are filled with bacon, jack cheese and creamy seafood dressing for the ultimate in predinner snacking.
