Biggest Crawfish I have EVER had!

Wonderful service and prices. Fried shrimp were amazing - but the craw dad's were incredible. Worth the 30 minute trip from Lafayette.

When you give a restaurant a rating you have to take into account the food (taste and presentation), the service (speed and courtesy), the atmosphere (compared to other restaurants of the same type) and of course the overall price verses the overall experience. When it comes to food I'd have to say that it was without a doubt the best... More

Cajun claws catered an event recently, and they rocked it as usual. Great staff and excellent crawfish. I plan to use them for my daughters birthday this year as well. Can't wait!

The long lineups are a testament to the quality seafood served here. There are other items on the menu but if you're not having boiled crawfish or fried/boiled shrimp, you're in the wrong place. High end of the price scale but the crawfish are clean and large. Highly recommended. Tip: instead of waiting 3 hrs in line, go early and... More

This is one of my restaurants that I will go way out of my way to eat at. We are staying in Henderson right next to a cafe that has "crawfish" in it's name and drove for over an hour to eat here. Not just for the crawfish though. It also has the finest fried shrimp we have ever had... More

Everytime i have been here the food has been beyond wonderful. I have always ordered the boiled crawfish so i cannot judge other items, but their crawfish have always been flavorful and HUGE! They are kinda high compared to other places but you get what you pay for! i would recommend this place to everyone.

As good as Hawks, and less of a schlep. A tad expensive, but worth every penny. Get there by 4 to put your name in, or you wont be seated till late

Cajun Claws is a small town delight! A true Cajun experience. Mr Donnie Choate, born and raised in Abbeville, gives a wonderful dining experience. At Cajun Claws your platter consists of hand picked prime crawfish. Add corn, and potatoes and your meal is complete? Seasoned to perfection, the true Cajun cuisine. Also a town with some of the friendliest people... More

I taste SUGAR in their fried shrimp. I prefer a salty taste. I also thought the crawfish was good just not as flavorful as I prefer. It all depends on your tastes.
