You don't go for the aesthetics - go for the crawfish!

When we read on facebook that Richard's was offering crawfish that evening, we decided to go... Arriving only minutes after opening, we still had to wait in line for a half hour to get in... But, we made good use of that time, talking to locals who were also waiting. Our favorite was a local... read more

Phone in the wall type place but the food was fantastic. Had catfish and crawfish for the first time and was delighted at how good they were. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful considering we were crawfish virgins so to speak. Locals that were there came over and talked with us once they found out we were from Alberta. Even... More

We learned about Richards from a friend who raved about the crawfish so my wife and I made the trek from New Orleans and we were so glad we did. I had to use GPS as Abbeville is not easy to get around. We got there before opening and looked at the empty parking lot and metal clad building wondering... More

I had the seafood buffet and everything I tried was well seasoned. My dinner companion (from the area) had the select crabs and found them to be excellent in size and seasoning. The price is per crab but if they are that good it is worth it. I would not recommend the place for atmosphere. I was a little concerned... More

You have to try this place. Great food, great service and great prices. They have a great menu choice or even a buffet.

The food is just okay. Nothing to get excited over. You can find much better at several other local establishments. Service is poor and management is rude, even for a polite complaint. Will never go again. :(

People rave about the crawfish, but I can't eat them and ordered boiled crabs. What a mistake! I ate one because I was hungry, but I brought the other 5 home to do what Richard's failed to do. Seasoning did not exist. None. When I went to check out, I was asked how I enjoyed my meal, I said the... More
