Great early season crawfish, quick service, fresh shrimp but the best of the best is the seafood gumbo. To die for. Friendy staff and country prices seal the deal. Park in the lot before the restaurant.

Time was, this was the place to go, down the bayou in Abbeville. That was then, this is now. In this part of the country, just because you have a funky tin-roof boil house, that isn't enough. The food has to be great, as well. Boiled crabs here are still good, and if that's all you're looking for, then all... More

Just what we wanted to find, shrimp and crabs by the dozens. It's not pretty, but we had good service and excellent food on Saturday night. Didn't try the buffet, I wanted crabs and shrimp. I'm not a local, but the crabs were hot and very good. I had shrimp boiled in Bloody Mary mix, very good, will try this... More

This is THE PLACE to eat crawfish. There is no other place like this, get there early. Seafood gumbo is a MUST. The crawfish are big and juicy. The boiled shrimp are tasty. The seafood buffet has it all gumbo, catfish, frog legs, gumbo, étouffée, etc.... Never had a bad experience here its always been consistently good as we have... More

We went to dinner with 20 other people and had a wonderful time. We lined up outside an hour ahead of opening to make sure we got crawfish. They get about 300 pounds a day. It is early in the crawfish season, so they were small to medium. Most of us had the boiled crawfish. A single portion of three... More

Crawfish hands down is the best here. Big and always seasoned perfectly! Hamburger steak is great with the grilled onions grilled under steam! Ask for Megan Richard to be your server!! Best there is!!

The buffet here is absolutely a bargain. But if you're looking for crawfish, go ahead and order the big plate. Super fresh, perfectly done and a HUGE platter. The buffet features a lot to select from, and there's plenty of crawfish choices....just not the steamed kind on your platter. A local favorite, it's worth tracking down if you're anywhere close!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and we are SO glad they did! We would have never found it on our own. It is somewhat off the beaten path, but worth finding. We stopped here for dinner the first night of our vacation and were extremely pleased with everything we tried. We started off with their Appetizer Sampler for... More
