I went twice and crawfish were exceptional. The first time they were slightly over cooked but the second time they were perfect. The place is packed all the time, and they are understaffed. It's not bad service, they are just overwhelmed.

I travel with my job, and I am constantly looking for off the beaten path restaurants. I chose this place the other day and was not disappointed. I ordered the shrimp and made it spicy, it was a great choice. I added the alligator and chicken sausage ,and I was glad that I did. One can not go to a... More

Okay so first of all, this is a seafood restaurant in a landlocked region, so you have to lower your expectations several notches to begin with. Also, this seems peculiar, but I'm not a fan of their trademark dish, the crawfish. I like crawfish, but I haven't been impressed with the flavor pairing that they use here. My go-to dish... More

This place is good but it's not great. The seasonings are delicious, that's one thing I really loved. But the crawfish were so small, especially for the price! I wouldn't really recommend this place unless you were dying to eat some crawfish.

The shrimp, clams and crawfish were fresh and plentiful. I didn't love the garlic butter sauce. It tasted more like what I would have expected with a Cajun sauce, which isn't what I wanted, and was a little odd tasting, even though I like Cajun food. So, the flavor was disappointing. Also, we ordered medium spiciness because of reviews that... More

Went here for dinner and found the food to be average at best. The shrimp was very mushy and the Crawfish not very flavorful. But the worst part was the service.... we waited over 40 minutes after our order before even the first item was brought The items were brought over a 10 minute time in different order and yet...

My wife and I live near and often mention wanting to try Bucket of Crawfish out. 3 years later here we are. It seemed to be a no frills place. Plastic covered the tables and the patrons with their oversized bibs. I took this to mean we were in for an adventure. Well, back to the no frills for a... More

I am from New Orleans, LA. I was so excited to hear that I could possibly get crawfish in Utah. Sadly it was NOTHING like a true crawfish boil. No real juices boiled into the crawfish or anything. They just throw some hot sauce in a bag and call it authentic. If you are looking for real southern crawfish don't... More

This was add I expected;another Utah attempt at food they don't know. Unless you eat the whole Crawfish you won't taste anything. I am born and raised in Louisiana and if you are looking to get you Crawfish fix here, you are out of luck. The cost is very high. We paid $10+ for Crawfish that cost $5.40 in Louisiana.... More

My boyfriend and I go to this place all the time because we love it so much! It's not a place you'd expect to see in Utah, but I think it's a sign of how far we've come AND grown. We always order the shrimp, mussels and crawfish and we're never disappointed whether we get them in lemon butter, cajun,... More
