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

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

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.
