We love their very fresh shrimps, clams, Dungeness crabs and fish and sweet potato chips. Also, they have friendly workers who attend to your needs right away!

I must say it's better then boiling crab BUT Kickin' Crab is WAY better compared to this place. We wanted to try something new, came here and there was not that many people at this place for a 6:30 Pm, dinner time. Interior walling was nice. There was a bug that was red with wings running on the floor. Luckily,... More

Do you like cajun spices? Fresh oyster, crawfish, jumbo shrimp, lobster by the pound delivered to your table in funny bags swimming in the best cajun sauce ever? Yes, this place has it all, and you will pay probably half of what you ever paid in the past. We only spent 2 days in the area, and yet we dined... More

Been here a number of times with the family we all enjoy the place and their customer service. The shrimp and crawfish are the best overall.

First time at a place like this, and we had a great time! The food was fresh, and service was great. Food took some time, but I can't knock off points for preparing my food right. I'd go again!

I eat at one of the Vietenamese crawfish eateries at least once a month, i.e., Boiling Crab (the original one), Crawdaddy, and Red Crawfish and other copy-cat that are beginning to crop up all over the Bay area. Crawdaddy is the one come closest to matching Boiling Crab in terms of flavor and quality of the food. One thing in... More
