Wonderful off the beaten path local place. Packed at 2pm on a Saturday. Very lively with an engaging server. Food was tasty, authentic, and more than enough. Don't pass it up while traveling. Just say no to chains!!!!

Wow! One of the best casual restaurants. Extra delicious food. Great service (Ashley). I feel the real Louisiana atmosphere. I can't wait to bring the rest of the family for my next visit to Shreveport.

While in Shreveport we looked for a place to eat and was looking for some Cajun food. Checked tripadvisor and found Crawdaddy's Kitchen. Found the reviews to be mixed but generally favorable and I also took note the owners responded to the comments which I thought was good. We went there early for dinner. The place was pretty much empty... More

The fried crawfish tails were so good. The waitress was funny and made jokes that caused us the enjoy our visit. I love the decor. It looks so cajun.

Crawdaddy's is a great casual place to eat, with really good food. The Crawdad's are great and so is the fried shrimp.

I love this place. I've been going here for years. It's my favorite crawfish in Shreveport. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The other menu options are good too. I've had fabulous service. A few times there's been an occasional poor server. But I still give it a 5.

Favorite place to eat when in town! Excellent food, great prices, great atmosphere and good service. Always pretty busy so that speaks to the food/value.

Seeing that this place was rated highly, I thought I'd give it a try. Upon entering, I could see this is clearly a casual place, with a bar as well as patio dining. Several families were eating, as were several couples on a Tuesday evening. Since the temperature had reached 100 degrees, no one was dining outside! The hostess quickly... More
