Vegetarians welcome.

This restaurant offers a great variety of different dishes for meat eaters and vegetarians. The quality of the dishes remains consistent year after year. The service is excellent and the ambience is relaxed and pleasant.

This laid back establishment is a landmark in Pretoria - people flock here and it's easy to see why. A very expansive menu, from ribs to wings to gigantic seafood platters - Crawdaddy's has it all. Very good value for what you're getting. Try the ribs or one of their spectacular prawn/seafood platters!

This restaurant just hits the spot. I can't quite put a finger on it but there is just something about this place that makes it feel like home. It is fun and laid back with great food and service! I haven't tried everything on the menu but everything I have tried was mouthwatering. Great for a dinner with friend or... More

My first time at Crawdaddy's and it was a memorable experience. The restaurant was full and we had no booking but the friendly manager squeezed us in though. Fast and friendly service. I had a combo of ribs and chicken strips which was average. The ribs were soft and tasty but very dry. The chicken strips was clearly made in... More

Went there to celebrate a birthday. Dark and strange looking but the food was excellent. There were international guests who took photos of their food and were also impressed with the taste.

Nice family restaurant if you want to have some prawns Little crowded on each as much as you can evenings which makes the service slow. Not very child friendly and almost impossible for someone in a wheelchair.

Always full and there must be a reason. We love their chowders, the best in Pretoria. Being a fish eater, I find there is more than the usual "fish and chips" that is offered and so if you feel like the taste of a good sea food chowder - they do a remarkable one. Meat is excellent according to the... More
