This is a solid lunch staple. It is good but could easily be much better. The menu is great and (frustratingly rarely for Pretoria) features good fish and sea food. The oysters are reliable and delicious. The kids like the place and the trio of kebabs with rice and veggies works well for them. The service is obliging and knowledgable.... More

We visited Crawdaddy's at the tail end of our trip to South Africa. Definitely kept the best to last. I went for Pork Knuckle, and the better half had Seafood Chowder. Both were excellent meals, and the portions were enormous. Especially for the price. We were very impressed. Also impressive was the dedicated play area for kids. These are standard... More

The meat is the thing to go for here. Service is fine. Slightly cramped but if you are hungry it's worth a stop. They coped well with a large family group.

There is a lot more to the menu than steaks, but there is very much a meaty theme. This was a dinner with friends, we all had steaks of differing cuts, and all commented on how buttery soft they were. Delicious. Beware if you order extra onion rings, the portion is huge! Good service, friendly staff. I hear you need... More

Take time out at their new restaurant located in the Silver Lakes area. Great space, trendy, funky, lots of outdoor space, big play area for children, do not have to be close to this play area, food still good and menu offers a large variety, very big portions, craft beer options have been added. All and all a very positive... More

We went to Crawdaddys to celebrate my birthday. We were placed in the new non-smoking area, where Jimmys Prawns used to be. This part of the restaurant was filled with cigarette smoke. It was really awful, because we couldnt enjoy our food and we left soon because of the room being smoke-filled. This was very disappointing, because we enjoy going... More
