Sweet & Juicy Seafood food truck is opening a restaurant in Louisville

A seafood food truck is opening its first brick-and-mortar location in Fern Creek by Christmas.

Lameshia Cunningham, the owner of Sweet & Juicy Seafood food truck, plans to open the restaurant at 8402 Hudson Lane as soon as inspections are passed.

“It’s perfect timing because my food truck just closed for the season,” Cunningham said. “People don’t really want to be out in the cold waiting for food.”

The 1,600-square-foot restaurant has 52 seats and two main seating areas. Cunningham said all he really needed was some paint to be ready to open. She anticipates the restaurant to be a “casual setting with good food, nothing fancy.”

Sweet & Juicy Seafood mainly serves Cajun-style seafood boils, including shrimp boils, crab boils, seafood platters and fried seafood dishes. There are three signature sauces: sweet Cajun, Cajun garlic and spicy, and guests can add corn, potatoes, sausages, shrimp or lobster to boil as they wish. In the restaurant, Cunningham will be adding on chicken boils, a burger or two, wings, and a seafood stuffed potato. Menu items range between $4 for appetizers to $50 for full platters.
