"Crazy Cajuns In Inverness- Making "Loosiana" Proud! So I'm flipping through my "Enjoy The City" coupon book wondering what I wanted to try. After trying craw fish for the first time at a local craw fish festival, I decided that I would try it again and searched for a nearby Cajun restaurant that I had not already tried.
