“First time at eating crawfish”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Four of us had dinner here. We all had three pounds of boiled crawfish in the hottest sauce they offer. Three pounds of crawfish for $12.50 pp. This was the first time that any of us had ever eaten crawfish. The owner of the restaurant showed us how to eat them. It took us over two hours to eat all of them as the meat in the tail is very small and requires lots of tedious work for just a small amount of food. The owner told us that this was most likely the last night that they would be serving fresh crawfish this season as the end of season for crawfish is usually over by beginning of July but this year the season lasted about a month longer than usual. Fresh crawfish means that the crawfish are alive right before they boil them vs. the frozen crawfish. The owner of this restaurant said she only serves fresh crawfish. Crawfish turn dark color (almost black) at the end of season and it is very difficult to get the tail meat out when they are this old. This was the first time any of us had ever eaten crawfish so we have nothing to compare it against but we enjoyed the experience.

“love this place!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

With one word I can describe this place: FUN !!! The menu is straight Cajun but has some twists to it like fried bread pudding. The employees all seem to love working there. You wont leave hungry, be sure to ask for a sample of the Praline Liqueur.......

“Delicious at a good price...”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

The people at the swamp tours suggested this place. It was delicious. We got tons of food with appetizers and alcohol for around 40 bucks. If you are hungry for some canjun food and don't want to spend a fortune, this is the place to go.

“All u can eat crawfish”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

We went here to have the all u can eat crawfish. And we pigged out. They didnt have any lime juice. The crawfish was delicious and fresh. They even put less seasoning on it for me. Cajun food is so spicey. Can't wait to go back.

“Great Fried Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

While on a Swamp Tour, we asked for a suggestion to get a good burger. Everything was delicious. Leave room for dessert, Fried Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce was outstanding! Our family also had a hamburger steak with Étouffée on top, Huey Long Hamburgers and Onion Petals, and Crawfish Étouffée! Will definitely eat here again!
