Black Diamond Oyster Bar
This little outpost on the way to the naval base serves fresh seafood with a Cajun bent. Inside it feels like a down-home cafe, but the back patio, with its live-music stage fashioned from a pontoon boat, is where things come to life. The place is kid-friendly, dog-friendly, flip-flop-friendly, and ice-cold-beer-friendly. And even on the hottest of days, fans keep it breezy enough to enjoy your crawfish tails and crab-stuffed flounder.
