Not that I needed an excuse to eat here, but we went when I received my $10 birthday discount. Awesome crispy fried oysters and fried catfish. We also had fantastic service. Ask for Nona.

If your wanting real Cajun food while here from out of town this is where you want to go. I've had most everything on the menu and never had a bad dish. Service is good too however not a cheap place to eat but you get what you pay for!

If you're looking for authentic Cajun cooking, this is it. If you're looking for dining ambience, this is NOT the place! Blue jeans, cutoff shorts and sandals are perfect. Oysters on the half shell (otherwise known as "raw oysters"), crawfish etouffee, spicy gumbo, are my favs here. Friendly staff, families welcome.

We chose this restaurant based on the exceptional Trip Advisor reviews but have to say it wasn't worth the out of the way drive. The food was good - fried aligator, shrimp poor boy and fried shrimp platter - but wasn't distinctive. On the plus side - it's locally owned with a home style atmosphere and friendly staff.

We're really sorry that you were disappointed, Cathy, especially since we're a little out of the way for you. We work hard to make sure that every dish is outstanding and packed with the Cajun and Creole flavors we love, but we'll definitely talk to the team to make sure our shrimp is just as great as it's always been....

This place was just amazing. You could not ask for a better waitress. Her name is Nona. Our food was hot and fresh and very good. We showed an interest in the crawfish but did not know how to eat them. Nona brought out a coworker. She brought us a sample of the crawfish and showed us how to eat... More

Found this little local place on Tripadvisor. The previous reviews are correct. The food is wonderful. Seafood and Cajun are the main fare but oh my they know how to cook. Fried shrimp was lightly battered and not greasy. Loved the red beans and rice, just enough kick. Crawdads/etoufee very good also. Portions are large so do the small if... More

This was our 1st time in Shreveport, we were looking to have some alligator, finding a place on line was harder than I thought, but I finally did. It was between Crawdaddy's and a more expensive restaurant, we decided to go more casual and so glad we did! First off our waitress Spiderwoman aka Nona was fantastic, she was funny,... More

Went ISO good Cajun food during a trip to Shreveport over the weekend. Saw excellent reviews of Crawdaddy's Kitchen and decided to go see what the fuss was all about. I reckon it's about authentic, home cooked, delicious, food served up in a casual atmosphere that lends itself to sit down and rest a spell. Hubby had a meat pie,... More
