Hawks served very good Crawfish, a little expensive & a ride way out in the woods but the owners are very nice & the purging process guarantees exceptionally clean Crawfish. This is the type where seasoning is added on top of the shells. Cold beer & nice wait staff.

Purged and cooked to perfection. If you haven't tried it, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to these true Louisiana delicacies!

A little hard to find but well worth the drive! Follow the signs to great food! Great atmosphere and perfect crawfish! A fun place to eat for locals and tourist. Crawfish not too spicy, good size and tender! Delicious! Great staff!

This was our second crawfish restaurant experience and the one I had been waiting to try for quite some time. You can actually taste the difference in the crawfish to other places - the purging they do is what makes the difference. I cannot fault the other restaurant we dined at (Louisiana Crawfish Time), the food there was delicious but... More

The crawfish are very good and clean. And I like that I can order extra spicy, because if your lips don't burn, they're not good crawfish. :) But the prices....WOW! They're a LOT pricier than most places for boiled crawfish. They ARE good, but not worth $6.65 a pound PLUS having to pay for boiled potato and corn which is... More

Clean. Delicious. Worth the Drive. Sure, there's the whole "experience" of a REAL Cajun restaurant--well-seasoned food, relaxed atmosphere and you better have a GPS if you're gonna find it. But let's face it. It's a restaurant. In the end, it's all about the food. And Hawk's doesn't disappoint. Crawfish so clean they look like they were scrubbed with little brushes--when... More

I read about Hawk's in the April 2013 issue of Louisiana Kitchen magazine and was intrigued with the whole process of the crawfish "cleanse"... I mean after all...these are mud bugs! Well, we packed up Saturday and made the 3.5 hour trip to check out these "clean" crawfish. We got to Hawk's around 4:45 in the afternoon. They open at... More

Okay, I get it… THE CRAWFISH ARE CLEAN and the experience of driving out into the woods is UNIQUE, but let’ be honest… THIS IS NOT THE SAME HAWK’S AS 10 YEARS AGO. The service here is average. The prices are as high as anywhere you go in this area for similar food. But the biggest reason to go to... More

Crawfish season started early this year, and it's something my family waits for as much or more than Christmas. And Hawk's never fails to please. The crawfish are large and perfectly seasoned. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. It's a happy place, and you feel welcome - not to mention satisfied when you leave. If you have a bit of... More
