Arrived around 11:30 ...I would suggest you do the same as the place was packed with many others waiting in line as we left around 12:30. You will have the choice of dining downstairs, outside or upstairs. We decided to sit upstairs by the bar...nice atmosphere with several TVs so you can keep up with scores... The beer was fresh...

Party of four ate there last night. All the food tasted very good and the service was good but two of the meals along with both bowls of chowder were either tepid or cold. The oysters on my poboy were cold, not even room temperature. Both chowders and my wife's grilled shrimp and mashed potatoes were room temperature.

I had mango mahi mahi and my husband had crab cake Benedict. Both were amazing! Highly recommend Sunday brunch.

I'm a local, and I've never had a bad meal at Crawdaddy's. It's a little expensive for dinner, but once you eat the food you won't regret paying the price. Lunch prices aren't bad either. For your main course, I'd recommend pretty much anything on the menu, and if you're still up for dessert afterward go for the creme brûlée.... More

We stopped here for lunch while traveling through the area. We stopped on a Thursday about 11:20 am and we're the 1st one's there. I had the Louisiana hot garlic shrimp with grilled asparagus and red potatoes, my husband ordered the crab cakes with cajun rice and a side salad. Both of our meals were good, but I would have...

My wife and I have eaten there several times. They have something for everyone....inside dining if it's hot, cold, or raining....outside seating for fresh air and ambiance.......and a bar upstairs with outside balcony seating for your social enjoyment. Food is always top notch. I never hesitate when my wife suggests going there. In a nice part of downtown across the... More

Had lunch today at Crawdaddy's West Side Grill. We each started a draft chocolate stout, which our waitress Eleanor highly recommended. We ordered the Blackened Catfish with Jambalaya $7.99 and the Shrimp & Grits $7.99. They changed the shrimp & grits from a greasy tomato based sauce to a lighter lemon sauce. Both of us preferred the new lemon sauce.... More

They have a great selection of plates for Cajun foods. We love to go eat here whenever we have sometime to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. It's laid back and you can sit outside or on the porch or upstairs or downstairs it's all wonderful. Definitely a place to try out if your in town!!
