Joyce & I went to a great Cajun restaurant last night that Norm and Margye introduced us to called Knotty Pine on the Bayou. Good crawfish eating and many other things Cajun. You know before you walk in to this place that it is popular by the number of cars parked along the side of the road.
This restaurant overlooks the Licking River and while it is still cold here – I can tell that when the weather is nice it would be a lot of fun to eat out on the porch (or the lawn) over looking the river.
The actual dining area of the restaurant is kind of unusual in that, according to our waiter, the restaurant was built many years ago and the building has been settling. The slope of the floor is dramatic and it is kind of surprising to me that the place hasn’t broken itself apart. I don’t know if you can tell from this photograph but the floor starting at the reest room door slopes to the right at probably a 5 to 10 degree pitch and the grey carpeted area slopes down away from the wall at about a 10 degree pitch. I took this picture from our table (foreground) and over the course of the evening I observed a few women step out of the bathroom and almost stumble because of the pitch. It’s amazing. Our table had a table cloth with glass over it. When I got to the table and set my bottle of beer down – I had to grab it because it started sliding across the table toward the edge!
