We learned about Crawdaddy's Kitchen from tripadvisor. We ate there on Saturday, October 4th. In addition to my wife and I, we had our 18-year old grandson, his girlfriend, and his roommate. All of us loved the food. The service was excellent. The waitress greeted us, came to our table immediately and got drinks, quickly took our meal orders, and... More

First, I loved their hushpuppies. I had seafood gumbo and shrimp étouffée, both were good. Shrimp étouffée had nice butterly flavor to it. My husband had combo plate of fish and shrimp, which turned out a lot for him. They were both cooked fresh, hot and crispy. Staff were all helpful and friendly also.

We were on our way home from natchitochis and didn't want to have to worry about finding a place to eat in Shreveport plus it was getting late and a Sunday night. Read about this on our trip advisor app and it was open till 10:00 on a Sunday night so decided to give it a try. Great food friendly... More

Boudin Balls were delicious!!!! The Etouffee was ehhh. Nothing to get excited about. The rice tasted like instant rice but it wasn't that big of a deal. Fried crawfish was good! The best part was my boyfriends crawfish fettuccini alfredo. DELICIOUSSSS! We wanted to cry when we had to throw our leftovers away because our road trip back home was... More

We should have turned around & left when we saw the outside, but we didn't. I am a full blood Cajun, so I know Cajun food & this was bad. The roux was burned, which is a big Cajun no-no. The food tasted greasy & warmed over. Both me & my husband felt queasy all day after eating there. The... More

Yes, burning the roux is completely unacceptable, and we do everything in our power to make sure it's perfect every time. I'm so sorry that we fell short, especially because I know we can do better than this. Most of our customers rave about our authenticity and service, so I want to get to the bottom of this. I'll share... More

Well the saying "good things come to those who wait" is the best way you can put it for this restaurant. Who cares about the service when the food is this good. We will definitely be back. Chicken and sausage gumbo is great along with the fried crawfish tails and the crawfish etouffee. Don't be afraid to try the homemade... More

Ha! It sure does, Brandon! Though it's so great to hear that you loved all of our dishes and those hurricanes, it sounds like we missed the mark on service. Let me know if you want to talk about that -- I want every part of your visit to knock your socks off! Take care, Louis, Owner More

I was in town on business and had to try real Cajun style food. The food was great and the service was good too. I see many reviews saying their service was not good, but that was not my experience.
