I am a valued customer and every visit is like heaven on earth. Every dish that I have eaten there was always fresh and on time. The employees are super great.

Food is okay but overpriced. For Cajun food it's not seasoned well enough for me. Nice outdoor patio for enjoying mudbugs. Decor is of course a Cajun theme, but all the things on the walls are dust collectors. In general the place appears dirty.

I'm really surprised that you feel this way, Cathy. As you mentioned, we do get a lot of locals around here, and as such, we do our best to make everyone feel at home. It's true that we're not fancy, but we'd never want to appear dirty. I'm going to look into this further, but I can assure you that... More

Found this place and had to try some crawfish etouffee! Our kids thought it smelled inside, but I think it was mostly the seafood. Atmosphere was fun! We stopped in for lunch and the service was great! We ordered the alligator tail and pistolette's to start. Kids loved the alligator and we did too! But I could have made a... More

We have several places to go for seafood in southern Lousiana but nothing around Shreveport. My husband had the Oyster Poor Boy and I had the Boiled Crawfish. Both were really good. The Crawfish was cooked perfect....didn't seem to have been setting in warm water prior to serving. Wished they had been a little bigger.....less crawfish means less work! Had... More

Sorry for the confusion, Linda! I hope we got that all straightened out, but let me know if that hasn't been taken care of yet. That aside, it sounds like you and your husband had a fantastic time, and I couldn't be happier to hear that. Thanks for the wonderful review, and be sure to come back and see us... More

A recent trip involved a drive from Shreveport to south Louisiana and I ended up stopping by Crawdaddy's Kitchen for a late-ish Sunday lunch. Place was still pretty full, so I took a seat at the bar. The menu contains typical Louisiana seafood house items such as fried catfish, shrimp and oysters; boiled shrimp and crawfish; gumbos and oysters on... More

Thanks for stopping by! Although I'm glad you liked our crawfish, I'm sorry if there was a bit too much breading on those tails for you. Still, that's good feedback, and so are your comments about your greens—I'm going to look into that right away. In the meantime, thanks again, and I hope we'll see you next time you're passing...

Yes, your server really did miss out by not making you feel more welcome, Bob. I'm so sorry to hear that, and I'm going to speak to the whole team to make sure that everyone feels at home. That aside, I wish you had been more impressed with your crawfish. As you mentioned, the season has just started, and they... More

This place was the worst I had in a long time. The food was cold and nasty. Not sure how they are at the top of any list. Not recommend at all.

I'm really surprised to hear about this. All of our dishes should be piping hot and exploding with those Cajun flavors we know and love, so I'm sorry if we fell short. However, I know we're better than that, and I'd like to dig deeper to find out what went wrong. If you have any further feedback, let me know.... More
