Shuck-N-Dive Cajun Sports Café

The restaurant offers only one dessert, and you might as well give in and eat it, if only because the waiter will call you a sissy if you claim you're too full. The homemade bread pudding was a superior specimen, soft but not mushy, the sweet retaining its integrity under a dousing of warm vanilla sauce. No one's too stuffed for a bite of this.

We were disappointed by a couple of items: The jambalaya, a mixture of mostly rice and tomatoes, was awfully bland; and a Gulf shrimp appetizer, a half-pound of shrimp served cold and in the shell and laden with pickling spices, was a little flaky from overcooking. But for the most part, the Shuck-N-Dive Cajun Sports Café is a swampy oasis in the middle of sandy Fort Lauderdale beach. Surprise.
