CRAWDADDYS, Owner at Crawdaddy's Kitchen, responded to this review

First and foremost, Joshua, we apologize that your experience left so much to be desired. Frankly, though, what you described from our drinks down to our crawfish is very out of character for us. Usually, our crawfish are big, meaty, and flavorful, our étouffée authentic,...More

Food was great. I ordered a fish and shrimp combo, and I swear it was piled up higher than the plate was wide. Could only finish half of it. The service was acceptable.

Will start by saying we are from the northwest and this is our first trip to the South and experience with local southern or Cajun cooking. We had the fried fish, boudin balls, pickled tomatoes, gumbo, and cornbread with crawfish. Everything was delicious. Spicy, not...More

We're not about providing a hit-or-miss experience, Chris, so it's disappointing to see that's what you got. We were surprised to hear that the crawfish were on the smaller side, too -- that's not like us at all. Overall, we know we can do a...More

Nice size, good seasoning, not to hot or salty. Best onion rings around! Of course, cold beer! Inside and covered patio seating. Always crowed, go early.
