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

Can't speak to other entrées but when crawfish season is on, so is Richards! Typically, the season runs Feb-Mar thru mid-May.

Went to Richard's while visiting the Abbeville area on the advice of our RV campground host. Typical Cajun restaurant with boiled crayfish and other Cajun items. The first thing that we noticed was that the prices were much higher than other comparable Cajun restaurants in the area. Since the prices were so high we ordered a couple of appetizers (fried...

We drove for an hour out of Lafayette to a town called Abbeville. Our dear friend, whom we had come to visit and who lives in Lafayette, had told us this is a wonderful place for seafood. I was frightened by the idea of eating boiled, whole crawfish, but I decided to give it a try. When we drove up,... More

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
