For a long time my husband and I had passed this place and said we should try it sometime. Thankfully we finally stopped and so glad we did. We love everything from the hamburger platter to the Super Seafood Platter, which we split. Haven't found anything we don't like. To top it off the service is great and quick. The... More

We were in the area and decided to give Crawdaddy's a try. To begin, our server was Shika.....she was excellent...great personality and knew the menu. We had the boudin balls as appetizer and this was an excellent choice. They were prepared perfectly and the dipping sauce was very tasty. My wife had catfish and shrimp. The catfish were seasoned perfectly... More

We went around 345 on a Monday hoping to get a good batch of crawfish before heading back west. We were disappointed especially since this place is rated number one in Shreveport. When the crawfish came out, they were small and mushy like they had been sitting for a while. They had ok flavor but was lacking in the spice... More

Oh no! There's no point in being rated #1 if we can't live up to it all the time. It sounds like you just got a bad batch, and we apologize that your crawfish wasn't as good as it should have been. We normally do a lot better than "mushy," and we hope you'll give us another try in the... More

Absolutely, hands down the best crawfish in the Shreveport/Bossier area. We love sitting out on the patio any time of year. It reminds me of being in South La.

I was in LA and had to have Crawfish. This place is hopping for a reason. They didn't disappoint. Casual dinning, priced appropriate. Friendly service. Boiled crawfish isn't on the menu. Just as and you shall receive.

My family drove into town and happened upon this gem of a place. If you like mud bugs this is the place for you , they are seasoned just right! It is a rustic atmosphere with a full bar and a large menu not just the crawfish. The family really enjoyed it.

The crawfish were great. Great taste and cooked just right. Better go early because it does get crowded.. They do an excellent job in getting a table as soon as possible. The staff were great and the atmosphere was good. The fish is great also, but unless you are real hungry better get the small order.Great place to eat
