Holy Crawfish!

This neighborhood joint was our lunch stop during an escorted tour. The exterior looks more like an abandoned strip mall with boarded-up windows than a “palace.” But a dive it’s not. Inside, the bar and multiple dining rooms are rec-room casual - laid back and filled with locals who flock here... read more

Inside, the bar and multiple dining rooms are rec-room casual - laid back and filled with locals who flock here for reasonably-priced seafood that’s fresh, yummy and generously portioned.... More

Glad I found this place. The crawfish were huge and perfectly cooked - only downside was the four pound minimum. Also had gumbo - very good; boudin balls - good but I've had better; crawfish pistolette - also good. Service was decent. Definitely will be back to try the crabs and maybe some fried seafood.

The food was hot but lacking flavor. We tried both gumbos on the menu and after all the reviews I was ready to indulge....not quite all it was cracked up to be. Smoky, dark rue, microscopic shrimp and not much substance. The fried seafood platter was generous in portion but not much to write home about. I was pleasantly surprised... More

Loved everything, disliked nothing. Best seafood or chicken & sausage gumbo ever. Boiled crabs, huge, and even fried crabs. Great service

Its crrawfish time and i had my third crawfish dinner at Seafood Palace on Saturday night.The tray was large , the crawfish were big, and tasted delicious. I always enjoy this restaurant any time of year. Their crab and shrimp gumbo is to die for. This is a localy owned restaurant and it is always packed especially during drawfish season.... More

Just finished another fabulous snow crab meal at our favorite stop on the route to Texas. Husband and I split one order of 4 clusters. If you are on I10 and love good seafood, this is the place for you!

If you're looking for awesome tasting seafood, fried, broiled, boiled, stewed, or gumbo, this is the place. Very casual, exceptional service, and reasonable prices. Most of their employees and cooks have been there forever. Truly a hidden treasure on Enterprise Blvd. Highly recommend it!

The owner and staff offer exceptional service, truly look out for people visiting. Outside is not the most attractive, but the inside is very comfortable and casually attractive. I have been traveling in Louisiana and Mississippi monthly on business for the past 2 years. I have therefore had a great deal of seafood and southern cooking. This was the best... More

The food and service were great!! Prices are very reasonable. The owner and staff demonstrated genuine "Southern Hospitality". Upon first arrival, the outside is rather unassuming...but once you get inside, the decor and atmosphere is great.
