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

You must try the seafood gumbo, the best hands down!! Fried shrimp are great and the boiled crabs are full and the catfish court bouillon is good too.

Being the fattie/foodie that I am, any request to go out to eat is always accepted! lmao... So, when my sister asked me if I wanted to go to Abbeville to have dinner I was ready! I am not very familiar with the Abbevile area so I was a bit curious and a tad apprehensive about what the food would... More
