We went to eat boiled crawfish for the first time ever. They were good and well spiced, burning the lips a bit. We also had steamed shrimp, they were ok but a bit under steamed, so the shell was a bit hard to remove. The service was great, the atmosphere was fun. Great place to people watch.

Yup, they're pretty hot! Sorry that you weren't as happy with your shrimp as you were with the crawfish, though. We'll make sure this doesn't happen again, and we hope we'll get to show you a five-star dinner soon! All the best, Louis and Ollie, Owners More

En route to elsewhere and spending the night at a hotel along the Interstate in Shreveport, my wife and I wanted something a little different for dinner. We found Crawdaddy's Kitchen on Trip Advisor and saw its excellent reviews, so decided to check it out. Very glad that we did. Friendly, casual setting with great service and reasonable value for...

Exactly what we wanted. The food was perfect and so was the staff. For once I got fried seafood that wasn't so overly deep fried you can't tell what you're eating. Staff was southern charming and friendly. We will be back!

Not a fancy restaurant, but a very good spot for good seafood in a casual setting. I had fried crab claws, shrimp and oysters, and my husband had fried catfish. . All was delicious. The service was good and the staff was very friendly. We stopped here after reading TA reviews and were not disappointed. It's a bit of a... More

I got the 1/2 and 1/2 crawfish platter - half fried half etoufe (sp). Was absolutely amazing. Also got a side of red beans and rice to try - was not disappointed. Other people at the table got the crawfish boil, alligator and a fried platter. Nothing but positive comments. Alligator was very good, as were the boiled crawfish I... More

I was here and had to have some fried gator before I left Louisiana. I ordered the spicy fried alligator and it was delicious! Had that with some onion rings and a couple cold beers and it was an amazing lunch! The service was great too, our waitress was back every 5 minutes to check on us. A must eat... More

Fried alligator, onion rings, and a few beers -- we like the way you think, Chawley! We're pumped that you could stop by and enjoy lunch with us before you left town. Hope you'll come back and see us next time you're in Louisiana! Cheers, Louis and Ollie, Owners More

Great Cajun cuisine, I had a pound of crawfish and the catfish etouffee and was extremely satisfied. Also, drink Abita beer brewed in Louisiana. Locals are extremely friendly so grab a bar stool and start up a conversation.
