Great seafood/creole/New Orleans-style restaurant located right in the heart of downtown Jensen Beach (a cool area filled with local restaurants, bars, and shops). We walked from a nearby hotel, but street parking was available (though may be hard to get on weekends/holidays). Very energetic, happening live music scene (which can be loud if you choose to sit outdoors).

Despite being quite crowded, service was great and beer was cold (excited to see Abita Purple Haze on draft). Everything we tried was delicious - especially the lobster bisque. Lots of unique dinner options, including New Orleans favorites like crawfish etoufee and jambalaya. Dinners are not cheap (but are comparable to any other fresh seafood restaurant in the area) and that would be the only reason I wouldn't return on a regular basis. But perfect for special cravings, a night out, and special occasions.

Crawfish etouffee with just enough spice to be flavorful, just large enough portion to get your monies worth, and just enough going on at a seven pm Monday night to keep the mood 'Nawlins Style. Large bowl of etouffee with a mound of white rice in center, and a perfectly enticing red boiled crawfish resting on top. Pretty good smoked fish dip, BUT down the street a few blocks as New England Seafood Market restaurant if probably the BEST smoked fish dip for my palate. Over all, Crawdaddy's was a good choice for lunch for the "not too spicy" palate I have.

Oh my God! What a meal! A few years ago you could find us in Jensen almost every night and definitely on the weekends. We used to eat here on a fairly regular basis but then the house renovation started and we rarely traveled far from the house. Well we are settled in and decided to venture back down to Jensen at Crawdaddy's for supper. We are now sitting at home asking why did we eat so much?????? It was fantastic that's why! I had the Traditional Jambalaya and my partner had the Mahi New Orleans Special both were delicious and sizably portioned. Our server was on the ball and very good. Of course we couldn't ignore dessert so here's where the overstuffed factor came in. Bread Pudding with a
banana slices and a bourbon glaze.......holy crap Batman that was incredible! My partner had the Brownie a la mode.........more good stuff. I am glad they have continued to maintain their quality and flavor. We will return again.

We enjoyed lunch outside on the patio. It was a fun as the entire outdoor area is a New Orleans-style retreat. The shade and decor is classic Lousiana and just a little different. We had pasta and oysters and the fresh fish wrap and it was all very good. Beers were cold and the right price. The children's menu is more than mac and cheese and chicken nuggets. (Which is a huge plus for us.) While our server was pleasant, she was not attentive and it took a while to get the check. Perhaps it was the "kid" factor, but we were there for lunch and not holding a table from the party crowd on Friday night. The indoor space is limited here and the bar is not large. Go for the patio. It is charming!
